ColorGATE, a leading provider of high-performance software and hardware products for colour-critical digital printing applications, is further strengthening its management team: Daniel Hummel has been on board as Chief Technology Officer (CTO) since 1 October 2021.
As CTO, Daniel will be responsible for research and development as well as the technological vision of ColorGATE. He holds a Master of Science in Computer Science from the Technical University of Braunschweig and has numerous additional qualifications, in particular as a Scrum Master. As a consultant in an IT consultancy in Hanover, he initially developed complex IT systems on behalf of customers after graduating. Later, he managed the development department at the New Zealand location for a Californian software provider. Most recently, Daniel worked for Comsysto Reply GmbH, an IT service provider specialising in new communication channels and digital media, in leading development positions. The focus of his previous work was on agile methods, web software development as well as the development of cloud solutions.
Daniel comments: "Industrial digital printing is a new subject area for me, and I hope that I can provide impetus with a fresh perspective - not only for ColorGATE, but also for RIP and colour management technology as a whole. I have come to know the ColorGATE team as a lean, agile organisation that has introduced numerous new and highly regarded technologies to the market over the past 25 years. I want to build on this to further strengthen the company's position as an innovative provider of high-quality, high-performance and customer-friendly solutions."
Thomas Kirschner, CEO of ColorGATE, is pleased about the new addition: "With Daniel Hummel as CTO, we complete our management team. As an organisation, ColorGATE now has all the qualities to grow sustainably and offer our customers leading solutions for the entire digital printing ecosystem - starting with e-commerce, workflow integration and job processing, all the way to production. And all this in the best print and colour quality, always optimised for the respective output system. ColorGATE now has over 1,800 drivers for a wide variety of digital printing systems in the fields of large format printing, surface decoration, ceramic printing, textile printing and packaging printing."
