    New position for Fuji Xerox Australia

    Fuji Xerox Australia has appointed the national manager of its Graphic Communications division, Simon Lane, to a newly created role, chief marketing officer. The new role will see Lane direct the business’s overall marketing strategy and implementation across Australia.

    According to Nick Kugenthiran, Fuji Xerox Australia’s managing director, Lane’s new position is an important appointment for the company.

    “As our Australian business continues to grow into a services business, there was a clear case for us to consolidate the leadership of our diverse marketing and communications initiatives,” says Kugenthiran. “Simon’s years of expertise in this space, coupled with extensive market knowledge and management skills, make him the ideal candidate to lead and extend Fuji Xerox Australia’s already significant marketing efforts for future growth.”

    Lane (pictured) said, “I am delighted to be appointed to this important role, given the remarkable brand heritage enjoyed by Fuji Xerox and our focus on the customer. As a business at the apex of technology, information and people, we continue to invest aggressively so that we can capitalise on opportunities in the emerging work place.”

    In his previous role as the company’s national manager of Graphic Communications, Lane led the division to dominant market share by expanding its offerings into other high-growth markets and channels.
