San Diego-based inkjet technology company Memjet announces the hiring of industry veteran Scott Leger as its vice president of business development.
In his new role, Leger will manage the interest, engagement and development process for OEM partners interested in using the company’s DuraLink technology for their high-volume presses.
The vast amount of Leger’s work experience was with FUJIFILM Dimatix, a piezo inkjet company. Over the course of his 22 years at FUJIFILM Dimatix, Leger’s work contributed to growing the organization from a small startup to a global inkjet industry leader. As an early member of the Fujifilm Integration Systems Group, Leger combined his printhead engineering expertise with his creative thinking to help develop integrated custom solutions for end-user applications. As his role grew and he began taking on more responsibility, Leger managed functions that included engineering, manufacturing, marketing and technical support.
“When Memjet announced its DuraLink technology, I knew I wanted to be a part of it,” says Leger. “DuraLink’s features got my attention: the highest image quality on the market, quick printhead replacement times, robust modular component designs and longer printhead life make it a compelling solution.”
Adds Eric Owen, Memjet’s general manager: “DuraLink is gaining interest from OEM partners around the globe for good reason: its modular architecture enables OEMs to build presses with the quality, speed and affordability needed to compete in production print markets.
“Scott’s industry knowledge, combined with his rich history of developing and integrating inkjet applications, makes him the right person to expand these relationships and develop solutions that make Memjet, its OEM partners and end-user customers successful. We welcome him to Memjet.”
Aside from its corporate offices in San Diego, Memjet has offices in Boise, Idaho; Dublin; Sydney; Taipei, Taiwan; and Singapore.
