Colour Management/Applications Specialist (Sydney)

Boasting an impeccable pedigree, having worked in senior applications specialist roles with “name” digital pre-press providors in the UK and Australia, he brings a professional and well-informed approach to installing, calibrating, training and trouble-shooting, within pre-press workflow systems.
His expertise covers outputting to both offset or digital (ink-jet) environments.

A technical support virtuoso.

Senior Ops and/or Production Manager (Sydney)

A well regarded and high-profile production and operations manager with a wealth of print experience – not only managing large offset operations, but also in the delicate brain-surgery of merging different plants and cultures under the one-roof. He’s done this several times – and always successfully due to his strong people-skills.

He is familiar with large capital acquisitions (incl purchasing 12-colour presses), as well major bindery equipment purchases, and has been involved in improving plant layouts and workflow.

He has successsfully negotiated several peaceful workplace agreements – winning plaudits from both management and workers, alike. 

Part of his “secret” of managing the people-function is to “meet and greet” each staff-member every morning – and to know them all on a first-name basis (which gets difficult when you’ve got over 100 people!) It’s worked wonders in best-performance outcomes for his plants – including make-readies on the 12-colour perfector in under 40 minutes!

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a senior ops manager with the tender-touch – achieving productivity and performance KPI’s through understanding of the people/plant interaction.

This candidate is not a cost, but an investment in your future. 

Senior Sales Executive – Printing Equipment & Pre-Press Software (Sydney)

With a global footprint, this candidate has negotiated major international deals in Europe, S-E Asia and the USA.
Products and services have included imagesetters, proofing and multiplexing systems, plus customised pre-press applications for newspapers and large, global commercial printers.

Formerly a Sales Director with Crosfield for Australia and NZ – you get the message!

Would suit any provider of high-end pre-press workflow systems who’s seeking a professional marketer. 

Junior Account Mgr/Customer Service Rep (Melbourne)

If you’re looking for a keen young lady of pleasant disposition, enthusiastic manner – and a “ready made” understanding of print management and logistics – look no further!

This is the face of the printing industry of tomorrow.

Digital Print Account Manager (Melbourne)

For internal or external sales roles – this is an experienced mover-and-shaker in the digital world of Melbourne’s CBD.

With a strong background in digital print production and supervision – he’s now applying that expertise to solving client’s digital print needs. He knows and understands this market well, including b&w and colour, and wide-format ink-jet.
Recent roles include sales and account management with several large digital print providers.

Mergers & Acquisitions Consultant, Print Industry background (Brisbane)

If your company is considering buying – or selling – or snuggling up to another warm corporate body (you must be over the age of consent and have approval from parent bodies), JDA has a “marriage broker” to legitimise this union.

A former managing director of several large/medium sized commercial printing companies, with a wealth of senior management experience in the UK and Queensland is able to offer independent advice about the how, why and when of selling your business – or buying another.
