    New state manager for Halifax Vogel Group Victoria

    After the absence of a dedicated state manager for the last 14 months, Halifax Vogel Group’s Victorian office has appointed the company’s former Octanorm Australia division business manager, Stephen Dorrofield, as its new Victorian state manager.

    Dorrofield, who has been Octanorm Australia’s business manager for past 18 months, will be charged with leading and managing the Victorian branch, overseeing sales results and developing new business across HVG Graphics Media, HVG Fabrics and HVG Decorative Building Products.

    “Stephen has learnt a lot about all of the business during his 18 months with Octanorm Australia,” says HVG chief, Bruce Rayment. “He brings a wealth of leadership and management experience to his new role and I’ve no doubt he will be a valuable asset in forging high level relationships and overseeing sales across Victoria.”

    Dorrofield, who has a two-decade career history in the exhibition industry in Australia and South Africa, says he looks forward to building the company’s profile in his new role.

    “I’m excited about the chance to work with a strong and committed team in Victoria to further increase the profile and presence of our products across the state,” says Dorrofield.

    Gee, who has notched up more than 30 years in most sectors of the printing industry landscape in Australia and New Zealand, will be based in the company’s Noble Park, Melbourne HQ.

    “It is a tremendous honour to be joining such a proactive and progressive Ink company during these trying times,” says Gee. “Our Global manufacturing strengths and strong localized Technical support afford us a wonderful platform to develop our targeted markets and at the same time provide a genuine alternative to Cold set, U.V Cold set and Heat set customers starved for options.”
