Gallus Inc., the North American arm of the Swiss manufacturer of narrow web printing presses, has a new president. Brian Bishop joined the company July 7 with responsibility for US sales and service of Gallus equipment. He replaces Jon Guy, who was president for six years. Gallus Inc. is based in Philadelphia, PA, USA.
According to an internal memorandum from Gallus CEO Klaus Bachstein, Bishop has “a proven track record in service and sales functions, and brings extensive experience in dealing with European headquartered companies.”
Bishop was employed at Demag Plastics Group, a manufacturer of injection molding machinery, from 2003 to 2007. He served as president of the company’s North American operations in Strongville, OH, USA, from 2005 to 2007. Prior to that he was VP of sales for Engel Machinery, based in York, PA, USA. He is a graduate of Ohio Northern University with a BS in mechanical engineering.
Jon Guy, the former president, says he is interested in the field of brand protection and intends to explore opportunities in that arena. In his memorandum, Bachstein wrote, “We thank Jon for his contributions to Gallus Inc. and to the Gallus Group, and wish him all the best.”
