Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica has chosen industry veteran Daniel Vilchez as its Area Sales Director for both North America and Latin America. In this new role, he’ll be responsible for sales and business development to ensure the highest level of customer support, by providing his in-depth expertise to the OEM’s range of flexography presses as well as service support. A seasoned flexography sales expert with over 20 years of experience, he’ll also be responsible for sales and business development between Flexotecnica Italy and Koenig & Bauer North America and Latin America. With a deep commitment to flexography, he’ll support existing and new customers with their expansion plans.
“I’m pleased to support the North American Division of Flexotecnica and excited to bring my international business and entrepreneurial mindset to flexographic printers in North America,” Vilchez added. “As flexography continues to grow as a prominent printing process, I want to help them choose the best equipment tailored for their specific production needs. I’ll be working closely with the entire sales and service team, demonstrating our commitment and willingness to grow and support existing and new customers.” Prior to joining Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica, Vilchez managed his own company, which he started at the age of 23, and has worked with some of the biggest suppliers in the flexographic industry. He also brings a proactive approach and strong customer relationship experiences, along with equally strong technical knowledge. Vilchez earned an Executive MBA from the IE Business School in Madrid, Spain.
“We welcome Daniel to our team here in North America,” said Preston Neetzel, Sales Director of CI Flexo at Koenig & Bauer U.S. “We believe he’ll become a valued resource for both our customers and our organization. He’ll bring his vast technical knowledge and experiences to Koenig & Bauer customers and provide them with a wealth of industry knowledge, while lending his hands-on experience to allow our customers to continue to expand.”
