The Board of Directors of Highcon (Yavne, Israel), a leading manufacturer of digital cutting and creasing machines that cover a wide range of formats, substrates and applications, has approved the nomination of Alon Bar-Shany, former General Manager of HP Indigo, to the role of Chairman of the Board. During his tenure at HP Indigo as GM, he was recognized for having grown the company by over $1 billion in revenue. Prior to that he ran the HP Indigo business in EMEA, led the worldwide Indigo channel business, and was CFO of Indigo at the time of its acquisition by HP. He was also a member of the global Dscoop Board, working with customers to create a community focused on sharing and growth.
Bar-Shany is assuming the Chairman role from Amichai Steimberg, who has held this position since mid-2020 during the company’s successful IPO process, and who’ll be stepping down as planned. Bar-Shany will be joining Highcon’s Board of Directors that currently includes: Benny Landa, Founder of Indigo and Chairman of the Landa Group; Fiona Darmon, General Partner at Jerusalem Venture Partners (JVP); Adina Shorr, previously CEO of Object, Scodix and CellGuide; and Giora Bitan, formerly CFO at ECI, Scitex and a senior partner in several venture capital funds.
The company also welcomed Simon Lewis as its new Vice-President of Marketing. Lewis is well-known in the printing industry, having started out 27 years ago at Scitex, and has spent most of his career driving analogue-to-digital transformations. For the past 14 years he’s been at HP Indigo where, among other roles, he headed up its Strategic Marketing and served on the Executive Management Board. Most recently he was Regional Business Manager in Central & Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
