Presstek, a leading provider of eco-friendly printing solutions, has appointed Yuval Dubois to Chief Executive Officer. Since joining Presstek in 2013, Dubois has successfully spearheaded several critical initiatives in the commercial, newspaper, label and narrow-web printing market segments. He played a pivotal role in the launch of Zahara waterless plates, and his vast knowledge in computer-to-plate and DI plate technologies will be invaluable as he positions Presstek for greater success, said the company – who also added that Dubois’ drive and proven leadership skills will enable him to effectively lead the management team to develop strategies that will set the stage for Presstek’s long-term growth and profitability.

“It’s an exciting time to be at Presstek. I look forward to working with our talented team to continue to advance Presstek across multiple market segments within the printing industry,” he said. “We have a lot of opportunities to reach new customers, while helping our large customer base grow their businesses. The market can expect to see new partnerships, products and services, with an increase in research and development.”

Before joining Presstek, Dubois held various management roles at VIM Technologies, which was acquired by Presstek in 2013. Dubois replaces John Becker, the interim CEO who stepped in after the sudden passing of Presstek’s former CEO Sparsh Bhargava in October of 2016. Becker is a General Partner at American Industrial Partners, the investment company that acquired Presstek in 2012. “With Yuval’s sound judgement and deep understanding of the printing industry, Presstek is poised for a period of new growth,” Becker added.
