Dscoop today announced the appointment of Eran Friedman as the new Dscoop EMEA Chairman for 2017. As Vice President of Marketing for Ilan Print, Friedman has been an active member of the Dscoop community for almost seven years and brings a wealth of industry knowledge and experience to the role. In his new position, Friedman aims to strengthen the Dscoop community across the EMEA region and build on the widely successful EMEA Conference series at next year’s event in Lyon, France.
“Dscoop is a truly unique organisation, focussed not only on making valuable connections with other HP graphic arts users and industry partners, but also in driving innovation across the print industry,” commented Friedman. “It is a privilege to be working with such a wide network of professionals who are at the forefront of their industry, and I am very much looking forward to being a part of the exciting year that lays ahead for Dscoop and its members.”
Friedman began working at family-owned commercial print business, Ilan Print, during his teenage years and joined the organisation full-time after graduating from Tel Aviv University. Working as Director of Business Development, he launched Ilan Print into the digital era, both in pre-press and offset printing. Having progressed through the ranks to his current role of Vice President of Marketing, Friedman has opened new business channels worldwide and broadened the company’s services.
“Having become a Dscoop member in 2011, I was immediately struck not only by the impressive professional network but also by the highly valuable annual conferences, having attended every year since. I subsequently joined the membership committee for the 2012 event in Barcelona, became a Dscoop EMEA Board Member in 2013, and chaired Dscoop’s biggest ever event in Tel Aviv last year,” continued Friedman. “With a continued focus on delivering value to members, the next year will see another major conference event in Lyon, France as well as an increase in the number of local events being run throughout the region. It is a particularly exciting time to be working with Dscoop, as we go through this period of growth.”
The announcement follows the recent appointment of Alonzo Romero Lauro as the new Dscoop EMEA Director earlier this year. Since taking on the position, Romero Lauro has already registered a number of key successes for the organisation, including the creation of several highly successful ‘Local Chapter’ regional events.
“With Eran’s energy, enthusiasm and creativity, and with an influx of fresh perspectives amongst the team this year, we are keen and well equipped to take Dscoop to a whole new level over the next 12 months,” concluded Romero Lauro.
