Neil Sutton retires from Komori Europe

At a celebration event at Komori’s European Headquarters in Utrecht, Komori International Europe has fittingly presented a Lifetime Achievement Award to its COO, Neil Sutton, to mark his retirement after 27 years with Komori Corporation.

Ken Sagawa, Neil Sutton and Eiji Kajita, at the award presentation.

Sutton joined Komori in 1996 as UK Southern Area Sales Manager after previous sales positions in the mail processing and print finishing industries. His business prowess helped drive sales into new markets, including the strengthening of the company’s position in the print packaging field.

His role developed to take responsibility for sheet fed sales throughout the UK, Ireland and South Africa, culminating in his promotion, in 2004, to Komori UK’s Director of Sheet Fed Sales, then upwards to UK Managing Director, the role previously occupied by Martin Rickards after his move to head up Komori’s European operations in Utrecht.

By 2018, he took the wider role of COO for Komori Europe International B.V. headquartered in Utrecht, following the retirement of Martin Rickards.

For many years, Sutton has also served as an active and inspirational council member of Picon.
