Congratulations to Kevin Murphy on his appointment as President & CEO of Onyx Graphics

Like most reprographers in the U.S., I first met Kevin when he was in management with OCE’s USA WFPS group, based in Chicago. He visited us several times at our HQ’s in Tampa, FL. (Florida is a great place to visit when you live in Chicago, especially in the wintertime!) Working with Kevin was always a delightful experience. It was easy to observe his passion for business and for helping OCE’s dealers be successful. After that stint, Kevin relocated to OCE HQ’s in Venlo. I visited Kevin in Venlo and, while there, he introduced me to the OCE ColorWave 600. That was in late January 2008, a few months before OCE officially launched the OCE ColorWave 600 system. (Remarkable printing technology.) Kevin was instrumental in the very successful launch of that system, and, for that mater, other new OCE systems. Kevin was in Venlo for several years, but, earlier this year, relocated back to the U.S. and rejoined OCE’s USA management team.

Please join me in wishing Kevin Murphy the best of luck and success in his role as President & CEO of Onyx Graphics.

Here’s the Press Release…..
