New director of solution sales at Pitney Bowes
Pitney Bowes Australia has appointed former Hargreaves Institute for Innovation and Telstra Business Woman of the year finalist, Angela Peverell (pictured), as its newly created roll, director of solution sales.
According to the company, the new role was created to take full advantage of new solutions launched through Pitney Bowes’ customised solutions delivery division, Solutions Factory. In her new role, Peverell will oversee the sales of Pitney Bowes’ product solutions in the Australian marketplace.
James Murphy, managing director of Pitney Bowes Australia, says that, with Peverell’s business experience and her nomination as a finalist for the Telstra Business Woman of the year award, along with her experience in sales and marketing will put her in good stead for the new role.
“Angela was the ideal fit for this role. Her insight and proficiency in sales and marketing will help expand Pitney Bowes’ Solutions Factory in the Australian market,” says Murphy. “Angela’s proven track record in developing products and relationships will be invaluable in fostering customised applications of new products, transforming Pitney Bowes’ solutions and creating stronger channels of communication with our stakeholders.”
Fineline Printing MBO by ex-Salmat executive Neil Collyer
In 2008 Collyer (pictured) became Fineline’s general manager after a four-year stint as national manager of operations at Salmat. However, he was appointed chief executive officer of the print business in 2010 after acquiring a 20 per cent share.
Prior to his position with Salmat, Collyer worked as national publications manager at Trading Post, and before that, as general manager of Fairfax Newspapers.
Industry sources indicate that Collyer spent $3 million to take over the Noble Park North-based company, which is reported as predicting a $14 million turnover this financial year. Already sporting a strong digital fleet, under Collyer’s ownership, the company looks set to grow its digital arm even further as print runs become shorter.
