Sean Springett Appointed CEO of Manroland Sheetfed North American Subsidiaries
Manroland Sheetfed GmbH, the German printing press builder, has announced that Sean Springett, 42, has been appointed chief executive of its subsidiaries in Chicago and Vaughan, Ontario, Canada.
“As vice president sales & marketing for the USA and Canada for the last four years, with a career in the industry spanning more than 20 years, Sean has held progressively senior leadership positions,” Rafael Penuela-Torres, group CEO, said. “He is the natural choice to head up our North American operations.”
Springett, who joined Manroland Sheetfed in 2008, said, “Manroland Sheetfed is one of those rare companies to have truly revolutionized the offset market through technology, and I couldn’t be more honored to have been chosen to lead the company in the USA and Canada.”
Brian Gott, CFO, said, “Sean is a proven leader with strong business credentials. His vision for how our products and services will be experienced in the USA and Canada is exactly what we need as our company enters its next chapter.”
Gina Gigliozzi, director of sales administration, said, “Having worked with him for more than eight years, I feel sure that Sean is the right leader at the right time for Manroland Sheetfed.”
Former CEO, Mr. Mike Mugavaro, 64, passed last month. Mugavaro had been fighting cancer.
“We were all deeply shocked by Mike’s untimely death, he had been battling this terrible disease for some time but was determined to carry on as normal for as long as possible,” Penuela-Torres said. “We will miss him and on behalf of everyone that knew him professionally, we extend our deepest sympathies to his family and friends.”
