Craig Nethercott to lead Océ Oceania

Canon Australia’s newly formed Océ division to handle all commercial print is taking shape, with Craig Nethercott picked as the managing director.

Kicking off from January, Canon is shifting its production printing products to a separate dedicated Canon Group entity, Océ Australia, which the company says will enable greater focus to the specialised market segment.

Nethercott says, “I look forward to commencing my role at Océ in Australia, continuing the company’s growth trajectory and ensuring our customers’ needs remain at the heart of our business. I am particularly passionate about ensuring my colleagues at Océ are empowered to collaborate and innovate, driving new and exciting digital and production printing technologies.”

With 17 years of experience in print, Nethercott has held senior positions across Canon, including Océ in the UK. He was also director of Canon UK’s Commercial Print Group over four years.

“Nethercott will be instrumental in continuing to strengthen Océ’s comprehensive suite of products and professional printing services, driving a cohesive team to build on Océ’s history of innovation and excellent client servicing,” says Canon.

He will officially take up his post on October 1 but will spend time prior to that in preparation. The new division will host the country’s best selling UV flatbed printer, the Océ Arizona, and the market leading Océ high speed inkjet webs, as well as the imagePress digital print systems

Anton Schaaf, CEO, president, Océ, says, “Australia and the wider Oceania region is strategically important market for us. With nearly two decades of valued experience across the business, Nethercott will play a pivotal role in delivering strong results while continuing to put our customers and employees at the centre of what we do.”
