Gurnee, Illinois based Domino Digital Printing announced that it has added Lloyd Kent as Senior Sales Manager for Corrugated, Digital Printing North America. Kent brings to Domino over 30 years of experience. His career includes roles as sales development manager, national & regional sales manager, and regional market director. Companies fortunate to have had Kent on their team over the past 20+ years include EFI, HP, and Bobst, where he was responsible for sales of digital and traditional corrugated printing machinery. Prior to that, he spent 12 years at Diagraph, providing coding, marking & labeling solutions to brand owners for their products and packaging.
Kent’s career in corrugated began with Bobst, where he spent 15 years selling corrugated and folded carton machinery throughout the U.S. Over the past six years he has been providing both single-pass and multi-pass digital solutions to the corrugated industry with HP, and most recently EFI.
Kent is very involved with AICC where he serves as an Ambassador by introducing incoming members to existing AICC members and helping them get acclimated and feel welcomed within the association. Kent’s LinkedIn profile sums up his business focus: “I help corrugated and packaging companies with their transition from traditional flexo printing and litho-lam technologies into single-pass digital printing.”
Domino, a major player in digital inkjet printing within the labels sector, entered corrugated in June 2020 with the introduction of the X630i digital aqueous inkjet corrugated press. Immediately, Kent wanted to be part of the company. “I am excited to join Domino with the responsibility of debuting a new digital single-pass printer, the X630i, to an industry I have been involved with for over 20 years,” he said. Domino is a remarkable global organization, but it truly feels and acts like a smaller company, being able to pivot and react quickly. The X630i is a new machine, and the technology is proven with many installations in the label printing industry. Domino places great emphasis on listening to our customers and this shows with offerings like our In-House Leasing program, trade-in/trade-up capabilities, water-based AQ95 inks, and local service teams throughout North America. Most companies looking into digital print have been craving most, if not all, of these offerings over the past several years. I believe a strong company behind the equipment you install is most critical, and my job is to facilitate the interactions ensuring a positive and successful relationship.”
Bill Myers, Marketing Manager at Domino Digital Printing North America adds, “I worked with Lloyd over 20 years ago, in the mid-to-late 90’s. He is a consummate professional, excellent with customers, a solution provider, highly dependable, very considerate, just a great guy, and someone you want on your team. I was very excited when I heard Lloyd joined Domino.”
