Continuous growth requires management changes Apex North & Latin America
The Apex Group of Companies is growing fast in emerging markets. And ever since the introduction of GTT in the US, also this continent has known a huge increase in turnover. This leads to management changes in the organization of the two fastest growing Apex companies. Apex newly appointed Dênis Niubó for Latin America and incorporated Dercilio Oliveira into the North America commercial organization.
Dênis Niubó—Sales Director Latin America
Denis’ professional history has been completely in the (flexo) printing industry: He worked for an end user in flexo-printing, mainly in the narrow web and in flexible packaging. Then he was appointed by an anilox roll manufacturer as Technical Support in the Customer Service department, changing to the external sales rapidly. Dênis was recently chosen to become member of the renown Technical Committee of AB Flexo (Brazil’s Flexo Association) for 2012-2013.
The challenge for Denis in this new job is “become # 1 with Apex in Latin America and he expects that GTT will continue to move the market”. His impression on his new employer sofar: “We all know what we are doing, the team is very enthusiastic and there is a lot of printing knowledge available within the company. The plant in Brazil and the plant in Holland look impressive.”
Dercilio Oliveira— Chief Printing Process Officer
Dercilio joined Apex in June 2008 and established the name in Latin America. He opened doors for GTT in this new market environment. After having spent 4 years in sales, his new challenges will be in the combination of commercial skills & GTT project management. Dercilio will co-ordinate and lead printing projects, together with end users and co-suppliers where GTT is involved. His main goal in these projects is achieving standardization for the end user. The demand for these projects is high!
Next to this, he will be Account manager for 10 integrated US corporate groups and he will remain responsible for sales in Mexico, Caribbean and Middle America, as well as a couple of US states.
