Mouvent has appointed Reto Simmen as its Chief Business Officer (CBO).
Simmen is a high-profile figure in the industry with nearly 30 years’ experience in printing, most recently as General Manager of Swiss-based inkjet developer Graph-Tech.
At Graph-Tech he oversaw a double digit average growth in turnover during his tenure, while doubling the number of employees within the period.
