Fujifilm Business Innovation New Zealand has appointed David Jupe as managing director.
Jupe has extensive experience in senior leadership roles in the graphic communications and outsourced services industries. He steps into the role from his current position as general manager of Managed Services.
He says, “The print industry has undergone a huge amount of change in recent years. This has been challenging in many ways. So, my focus in this new role will be on ensuring we have a sustainable, long term business. Certainly, we’ll build on our position as the market leader in New Zealand. We will do this by being nimble and keeping pace with changing market needs.”
Prior to joining Fujifilm Business Innovation New Zealand, Jupe held leadership positions as chief executive at two of the country’s largest graphics arts businesses. Most recently, he worked at Western Mailing. He also worked for 16 years at Blue Star Group. In addition, he has worked as an independent consultant and business coach to other executives. He is a graduate of the University of Auckland with a Master of Management degree.
Jupe as managing director of the company is excited about the fuure. He adds, “I am looking forward to working closely with our team and our customers. Above all, we will keep bringing innovative print, digital and outsourced solutions to New Zealand.”
Former managing director Peter Thomas stood down recently from his position at Fujifilm Business Innovation New Zealand. He had worked at the company for six years. Takayuki Togo, head of Fujifilm Business Innovation Oceania, stepped in as interim managing director for New Zealand.
