Xerox’s board of directors has appointed Jeff Jacobson as chief executive officer of Xerox Corporation following the completion of the company’s planned separation into two publicly traded companies. Jacobson currently serves as president of Xerox Technology and will continue in his current role until the separation is complete.

“Jeff is a great leader with a passion for our business and employees, deep customer relationships and a clear strategic vision to capitalize on the opportunities ahead,” said Ursula Burns. “During his four years at Xerox, Jeff has driven significant productivity and cost efficiency efforts while maintaining our commitment to innovation, quality and leading technology. With his previous publiccompany CEO experience and his track record and achievements at Xerox, the Board and I are confident he is the best person to lead Xerox forward.”

An industry veteran, Jacobson joined Xerox in 2012 as the president of Global Graphic Communications Operations. He became the president of the Xerox Technology business in 2014 with responsibility for worldwide strategy, sales channel operations, marketing, technical services and customer support, product development, manufacturing and distribution. Prior to Xerox, he served as the president, chief executive officer and chairman of Presstek, a supplier of digital offset printing solutions, where he drove a global expansion programme.

“I am honoured by the board’s decision to appoint me to lead one of the world’s most iconic companies and am confident that we will build a bright future for Xerox on the foundation of disciplined management, operational excellence and customer focusthat is in place today. As an independent company and with the benefit of the strategic transformation we are aggressively implementing, we will capture the many opportunities available to usto strengthen core businesses and pursue select growth opportunities,” Jacobson said.

On 29 January 2016, Xerox announced its plans to separate into two independent, publicly traded companies – Xerox, which will comprise the company’s Document Technology and Document Outsourcing businesses, and Conduent, a business process services company. The company is on track to complete the separation by the end of 2016.

Xerox will be a global leader in document management and document outsourcing with superior technology, solutions and innovations. With revenue of US$11 billion in 2015, the company will continue to be a trusted partner to its customers, helping them improve productivity, workflow and business performance through our deep understanding of how, why and where people work.

Conduent will be a business process services leader that helps businesses and governments manage transaction intensive processes on a large scale. With revenues of approximately US$7 billion in 2015 – 90% of which is annuity based – the company will focus on attractive growth markets including transportation, healthcare, commercial and government services.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
