President of Xeikon North America resigns

Michael Ring

USA • Michael V. Ring, the current president of Xeikon’s North American operations, joined the company in 2007.  Ring’s next logical step was a leadership position at the company headquarters in Europe. However, after much consideration, he decided not to accept this position due to the obvious impact it will have on his personal life. Ring will continue to support Xeikon for the remainder of 2014 regarding some of his industry association responsibilities.

Xeikon NV has announced the appointment of Patrick McCarthy and Todd Blumsack to lead its North American business operations effective immediately.

In his role as Vice President of Operations, Patrick McCarthy will lead the service and operations group in North America. In addition, he will also oversee accounting/finance, HR, IT and shipping/logistics functions of the business. McCarthy has been with Xeikon since the early 2000’s and has handled a broad array of executive roles and responsibilities during this time.

Todd Blumsack will now be the Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Xeikon North America. In this role, Blumsack has been assigned the responsibility to further expand Xeikon’s brand awareness and market share of high-end digital colour presses in the label and packaging segment as well as the document and commercial printing segment. A 25-year veteran of the printing industry, Blumsack has been with Xeikon since 2008. Previously, he spearheaded the marketing efforts for the retail and bulk business units as Director of Marketing for Weyerhaeuser Company and built sales and marketing programs as Director of Marketing-Commercial Printing for Eastman Kodak Company.
