Bettine Pellant has been named as the new Chief Executive of Picon, following Tim Webb’s decision to step down after eight years at the helm.
Pellant has over 20 years’ experience in the printing industry, initially in pre-press consumables before establishing her own business dealing in new and pre-owned pre-press equipment. She then worked in exhibition and event management before joining Picon in 2007 as Events & Administration Manager. She pointed out that Picon has established alliances with like-minded organizations, adding: “I will work to enhance these relationships wherever possible.”
Picon is a UK industry association for manufacturers and suppliers to the printing, papermaking and paper converting sectors. Webb points out that the adoption of digital technology has changed the organization, which now counts global companies such as Canon and Xerox amongst its members.
