Highcon has confirmed that following the successful flotation of the company on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE: HICN) raising $45m in an oversubscribed offering, the company has made several appointments to bolster its Board of Directors and executive management team.
The Board of Directors of Highcon approved the nomination of Alon Bar-Shany, former General Manager of HP Indigo, to the role of Chairman of the Board. He is assuming the role from Amichai Steimberg, who has held this position since mid 2020 during the company’s successful IPO process, and who will be stepping down as planned. Furthermore, the company also welcomed Simon Lewis as the company’s new VP Marketing.
Bar-Shany said, “I am looking forward to joining the Highcon Board and taking part in the ongoing digital transformation of the printing and packaging industry. Highcon has been a pioneer in the digitalization of the post-print part of the process which, after the growing adoption of digital printing, is where many bottlenecks now occur. I have been following the company and its customers for quite a while and will be supporting the Management team to ensure the success of Highcon customers, which will be a key driver for the company’s growth.”
Shlomo Nimrodi, Highcon CEO, added, “We would like first, to express our appreciation to Amichai Steimberg for his support during the past few months as we prepared and concluded the company’s successful IPO on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange. I am proud and happy to have Alon joining us in our digital transformation journey of the packaging industry. Alon’s industry expertise and reach, coupled with his experience in growing a capital equipment company, will be instrumental in executing our go-to-market strategy and scale-up. I am also delighted to welcome Simon to the Highcon team leading our marketing strategy and execution. As we start the year ahead, with this new team of expert players, Highcon is now well poised for growth and the ability to drive the digital change that is essential to optimise supply chains and reduce the inefficiencies that face the conventional folding carton and corrugated packaging industry.”
