Diego Hervás Is CEO
Comexi Appoints Chief Executive Office
Comexi, Girona, Spain, a global supplier of solutions for the printing and flexible packaging industry transformation, has appointed Diego Hervás as the new CEO of Comexi from 1st January, 2020. Hervás, who was born in Barcelona and has extensive executive experience, replaces Jeroen van der Meer, who had held the position since 2014 and who will continue to be involved with Comexi to ensure as efficient a transition as possible.
Diego Hervás takes over the CEO role of Comexi in a context in which the market is evolving rapidly and the ability to adapt immediately is essential, in order to remain a technological reference as well as a supplier with the maximum reliability.
In 2019, after closing the loss-making rotogravure unit in Italy, the company managed to return to profits despite the economic slowdown in the market.
At the last K fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, Comexi closed the sale of eight machines. Talks were also established for 50 new projects with several global companies.
A global innovation was the Comexi Cloud, the new digital platform that allows analysis of the production process, control and optimisation of costs and materials, and placing orders online for spare parts.
For more than a year, Hervás has been an independent member of the board of Comexi. This has given him a broad understanding of both the market and of the structure and operation of the company.
From 2018, Diego Hervás held COO responsibility at Plyzer Technologies, a company with branches in Barcelona and Toronto, which specialises in Intelligent Data Management to improve brand positioning and identify client needs.
He previously has held different executive positions for more than fourteen years at Xerox Corporation, where he led the European Graphic Communications Division.
