KODAK Alaris has announced the appointment of Cássio Vaquero (pic) as the new regional director of its Information Management division for Asia Pacific and Latin America.
Based in Singapore, he succeeds Susheel John, who has accepted a global leadership role with Kodak Alaris in Rochester, New York, the company said in a statement.
Vaquero will head up the Asia Pacific operations with a special focus on creating deeper relationships with customers and partners across important sectors such as government, banking and financial services.
“Asia Pacific is an exciting marketplace for our business and Cássio [Vaquero] has the experience and energy to unlock that power for us,” said Kodak Alaris Holdings Ltd chief executive officer Ralf Gerbershagen.
“He brings a great mix of entrepreneurial spirit and trusted expertise to the table – two traits that are core to everything we do here at Kodak Alaris,” he added.
Kodak Alaris was established in 2013 by the UK Kodak Pension Plan (KPP) after it had taken over the personalised imaging and document imaging businesses from the Eastman Kodak Company, which had then just emerged from bankruptcy.
In his previous role, Vaquero was director of Kodak Alaris’ Information Management business in the Latin America Region (LAR), with responsibility for sales, marketing, service, and business operations.
He has a track record of building teams to deliver growth in emerging markets like Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and Mexico for both the scanner and software sides of the business, the company said.
This has resulted in Kodak Alaris taking a leadership position in Latin America’s document scanner market for the past three years, it claimed.
Vaquero has been with the company for 15 years and has held a range of high profile marketing and sales positions. He also holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science from PUC-SP (Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo).
“The Asia Pacific region has a mix of developed and emerging markets with different adoption rates for information management solutions,” he said.
“The region is full of growth opportunities and offers us a really exciting challenge,” he added.
