Robert Pulford, managing director of Domino
's Digital Printing Solutions Division, was appointed to succeed Nigel Bond as company CEO.
Under Bond's leadership, Domino won numerous Queen's Awards for Innovation and Export and grew from a stock value of £75million to a £1billion business at the time of the sale to Brother. Presiding over 20 acquisitions, Bond, 61, also oversaw the integration into the Domino business of technology manufacturers such as Sator Laser and Citronix, and former distribution partners Domino Sweden and Domino MarqueTDI in Portugal.
As part of the Brother deal, he also secured significant investment in Digital Printing and Coding & Marking products and services.
"I've had over 20 memorable years with Domino," Bond said. "I am proud to have led such a committed and talented team that has driven innovation and produced ground-breaking and award-winning technologies.
"I'm delighted that Robert will be taking over as Domino's new CEO," Bond added. "Robert is a strong leader with a proven track record of success both within and outside Domino."
With Domino for 23 years, Pulford has been part of Domino Group's executive management team for 14 years and has led the company's Digital Printing Solutions division for the last six years.
Joining as a service manager, and later becoming GM within the UK Domestic business, Pulford's other roles at Domino have included group product management, group marketing and GM of Domino's European businesses, as well as leading the New Product Development program for Domino's i-Tech products, and the integration of a number of acquisitions.
"I'm honored to be taking up the position of CEO and look forward to carrying on Nigel's legacy," Pulford said. "My goal is to support the wider team to drive business growth in all areas and build on Domino's reputation as a leading provider of coding and marking and digital printing equipment."
