XSYS has appointed Oliver Dohn as chief executive officer. He takes over from Dagmar Schmidt, who has played a leading role in the company for over 25 years.
The company says that Schmidt successfully led the carve-out of the company from Flint Group and transformed the business into a global leader in the flexographic printed packaging industry.
