Inkcups, a supplier and manufacturer of printing equipment, has announced strategic changes to its executive team in order to keep driving business growth.

Benjamin Adner, founder and chief executive officer has taken on a new role as chief innovation officer allowing Rick Hajec to take on the role of Inkcups chief executive officer.

Hajec has been on the Inkcups Advisory Board for nine years and on the Board of Inkcups’ private equity partner, MPE Partners, for two years.

“It is an honour to be stepping into the role of chief executive officer, particularly at such an exciting time in the company’s journey,” says Hajec, adding: “For the past 11 years, I have worked closely with Ben and the team as Inkcups has grown; developing new technology, penetrating new markets, experiencing growth across a wide range of segments and geographies.

“Now, the company is perfectly positioned to enter its next phase, continuing to grow, innovate, and deliver outstanding solutions globally.”

Speaking about Hajec’s appointment, Adner comments: “I have been running Inkcups with great success for the last 23 years. However, the organisation is ready for some new professional leadership that will help accelerate growth. 

“I have known Rick for a long time, and his guidance over the years has been invaluable to the company and to me. He knows our business, our people, and our customers, and there is no one more suited to take Inkcups to the next level. I feel very lucky to be handing over the reins to him.”

As well as the new roles for Adner and Hajec, James Burns, vice president of sales has been promoted to chief commercial officer. 

Hajec adds: "We have significant opportunities in many markets around the globe, and we need one person completely focused on building out our sales and service organisation to continue our upward trajectory.  Jim has had a major impact on Inkcups’ growth in his ten years at the company and we expect great things as he builds out the new strategies.”
