Aleyant (Wheaton, Illinois), a leading provider of print automation software and services, has appointed Trent Foreman as its Chief Operating Officer (CEO). Foreman will now be responsible for all business functions and day-to-day operations at Aleyant – including strategic and operations management, tracking and continuous improvement of business metrics, and working with the Aleyant team to continue to attract top talent as needed. Foreman joined Aleyant in January of 2018 as Print Job Product Manager, took over all product management responsibilities in April of 2019, and has been Director of Products and Services since April of this year. Prior to joining Aleyant, Foreman spent three years as Director of Print Services & Sales at an Arkansas-based, full-service commercial print and promotional company, transitioning the organization from a corporate in-house printing operation to an independent commercial printer. From 2007 to 2015, he held various sales roles supporting the print production group at Ricoh USA.
“I’m very excited to be taking on this new role,” Foreman said. “I believe my years of hands-on experience in commercial print as well as the deep interactions I had with a variety of printing companies during my time at Ricoh, has given me excellent insight into the needs of these companies. That has served me well in directing product development at Aleyant, and I look forward to taking that to the next level as CEO of this agile and innovative company, together with the outstanding team that has made the company such a success to date.” Foreman will be taking on responsibilities for a number of partner and internal projects that are already underway at the company, as well as defining the strategic direction for Aleyant moving forward.
“Trent has been an important member of our team since joining the company,” said Tony Garcia, Group Leader at parent company Volaris C&M, and Interim CEO at Aleyant. “He has a deep knowledge of Aleyant’s product line and the needs of the commercial printing community, and has contributed to our overall business strategy and performance in many ways. I have full confidence he’ll continue to add value to the company in this new role.”
