Mark Wilton joins DES X-Rite team
The chance to work with DES brings Mark Wilton back to Australia.
Wilton, who is well-known for his time at Creo/Kodak, along with his position on the CIP4 committee, returned to Australia this month after on-going discussions with DES, after he saw the job advertised on Print21, which resulted in him taking on the role of business development for the X-Rite business locally.
“I was always planning on coming back,” he said. “It was just a matter of when and, more importantly, the right opportunity.”
According to Russell Cavenagh, sales director of DES, Wilton has the knowledge and skills to handle the position. The two men met years ago at a GAMAA workshop and have been firm friends ever since. “His background and experience was perfect for the role,” Cavenagh said. “It’s time to bolster up the team.”

Part of the role involves developing X-Rite’s presence in the industrial, imaging and media and retail markets. In addition, Wilton manages an X-Rite sales team that includes David Stead (industrial sales), based in Sydney, and Nideera Evans, (retail sales) in Melbourne.
Wilton sees significant opportunity for the X-Rite range in Australia. “With increased focus and direction, we can penetrate the market further than we have already done,” he said.
