“It has been a long time with us wanting to move into the Melbourne market, while making sure we could support our customers with the level of service and expertise we expect to deliver,” said Phil Trumble, managing director of Pozitive. “It is for this reason we have the team members that we have carefully chosen and have quickly become a great part of the team. We look forward to expanding with a consumables sales rep and a premises / stock in Melbourne in the near future.”
The team currently consists of three members: Warren Davey in hardware sales, focusing on Pozitive’s exclusive swissQprint machines and Summa F Series; Bruce Gathercole, focusing on hardware and the Dye Sub range – including exclusives with DGI printers, Monti Antonio Press, MS, Transjet Paper and Kiian Ink; and Paul Rizzatti, who’s has been brought in to look after all service in Melbourne and “continue to offer a high level of customer care for all the machines we sell.”
Pozitive profiled the new team members in a press release:
Warren originally started in the print industry by chance when applying for a service management position. He quickly became hooked with the endless creativity that you can find in this industry, from graphic arts to commercial print and seeing that the only limit is the customers imagination. Warren then progressed to a prepress applications specialist and from there to product management, sales, marketing and sales management of high end digital printing solutions and associated consumables. Warren was excited to join Pozitive as the first Melbourne team member and excited to be involved in the brands that Pozitive offer to the industry.
Warren is a passionate Bombers supporter, who loves spending time with his family – giving back to the community, restoring cars and enjoying everything that Melbourne has to offer in entertainment and culture.
