Danny Sheikh has been appointed executive vice president of Stork Prints America. During his 13 years’ senior management experience within the Stork Prints group, Mr. Sheikh has enjoyed considerable success. He moves from Stork Prints Pakistan, where, as managing director since 2001, he helped strengthen the company’s position in the textile printing market, with a string of contracts for rotary screen and flexo printing systems to several of the region’s major manufacturers.
Before this, Mr. Sheikh was executive director of Stork Prints IBI (Pvt) Ltd, a position he held since joining the Stork Group after completing his MBA degree at Ashridge Business School, Berkhamsted, UK.
Reporting to Wilfried Koopman, the managing director of Stork Prints global group based in the Netherlands, Mr. Sheikh heads a team of 48 employees. He replaces Gene Profitt, who moves to head the flexo division at Charlotte, NC. He will be responsible for developing the strategy for growth, and helping increase the significance of Stork’s technological innovations in laser engraving and rotary screen printing to the label, packaging and textile markets across the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
“With Danny and Gene’s successful track record, tremendous industry insight and outstanding team leadership skills, we have a strong management team, which places us well to drive our growth in North America,” Mr. Koopman said.
