Richard Roth appointed as new General Manager of Esko EMEA

Richard Roth moves from X-Rite R&D & Product Management and Eddy Fadel takes on the position of Global Commercial GM

Richard Roth has been appointed general manager of Esko's EMEA region. Esko is a global developer of integrated software and hardware solutions for digitising, automating and connecting the consumer goods go-to-market process.
Eddy Fadel takes up the position of Global Commercial General Manager after three successful years as EMEA General Manager. His responsibilities include global sales, services, marketing and product management.
"I am very pleased to welcome Richard Roth to the Esko family," said Eddy Fadel. "We will undoubtedly benefit from his many years of experience in the product identification department that he gained at Danaher. His tenure at X-Rite Pantone, where he was responsible for colour management innovations, and his leadership position in Videojet's packaging and printing business will make him a key contact with valuable expertise, both for Esko and our customers."
"Since the integration of AVT inspection systems and the expansion of our relationship with X-Rite's research and development teams, the Esko portfolio has expanded beyond prepress and is increasingly becoming the backbone in the packaging industry for our customers," said Eddy Fadel. "I am confident that Richard Roth's extensive knowledge of the packaging technology and packaging industry makes him the right leader to help our EMEA commercial division guide our customers through their digital transformation."
Richard Roth has been involved in Danaher's product identification platform for nearly a decade and most recently led X-Rite's research and development and product management as vice president in 2017. In his new role, Richard Roth will be responsible for leading Esko's business, support and finance in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. In doing so, he will work from the company's offices in Ghent, Belgium.
"This is a hugely exciting time for our company," said Richard Roth. "I am delighted to now take on the role of General Manager and build on the successful work of Eddy Fadel. He brought the teams even closer together to best meet the needs of our clients. Following the market uncertainty and volatility we have all experienced, our business is clearly focused on delivering innovation that supports our customers on their digital transformation journey."
"It is an honour to lead the team and I look forward to working with them to achieve our common goal of helping our customers around the world address the many challenges they face today and will face in the future," said Richard Roth.
