“Xeikon was the first digital press manufacturer to bring full colour digital print to the market in the early nineties and Filip joined shortly after,” Xeikon CEO, Wim Maes, states. “He has watched and played an instrumental role in the phenomenal growth of the digital print market. It has now reached mainstream status due to the migration of many applications from conventional technologies to digital, as well as the broad array of new applications it has enabled. Xeikon has helped businesses completely transform their production capabilities and sales approach to grow successfully in an evolving market.”

Over the past few years, Mr Weymans has focused on the labels and packaging market, bringing Xeikon to an undisputed number two in the industry for digital solutions in this space. Mr Weymans says, “Now that we are part of the Flint Group, we will be able to even further develop the marketing department with a strong focus on our positioning and roadmap for the future. I am looking forward to the new challenge of taking on this new role, and excited about leading Xeikon’s experienced and creative marketing team.”
