WoodWing Software is naming Pierre Hame as the new Regional Sales Director in the Middle East, India and Africa as it has expanded its operations in those areas.
WoodWing officials say having Hame on staff will allow the company to continue to make inroads in those regions.
Hame has experience working with newspapers, publishing companies, printing houses, corporate publishers and advertising agencies around the world — including in the Middle East, Africa and India — and this knowledge will prove invaluable to customers.
Jeroen sonnemans, Director of WoodWing Europe, said, “Hame not only knows the publishing industry; he knows those regions extremely well. He’s going to be an excellent fit in this new position.”
Hame began his career in the publishing industry as a typesetter, and has worked in the graphic arts industry since 1992. He gained experience in all facets of the publishing world, working in desktop publishing for ad agencies; in sales and marketing for pre-press companies; and in marketing and sales for his own publishing company.
Starting in 2000, Hame joined the staff at OneVision Software AG in Germany, first as a Regional Sales Representative and later as the Sales Manager for Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the rest of Europe, managing direct and indirect sales channels.
Hame eventually developed a sales and consulting team to develop emerging markets, including in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America. He also worked as Sales Director for OneVision UK Ltd.
