Quark Software, a global leader in content services, has announced the appointment of tech industry veteran Victor Shepherd as chief executive officer. Shepherd joins Quark as CEO from Quark’s parent company, Parallax Capital Partners, where he serves as an operating partner. In his new role, Shepherd will lead the organic and inorganic growth of Quark’s solutions for content automation, sales enablement, sales asset management and graphic design software.

“In my years of driving growth and profitability at a variety of tech companies, I have never been more excited than I am about the opportunity we have at Quark to get to the next level,” said Shepherd. “When we combine Quark’s existing solutions for content automation and multimedia design with the acquisition of Docurated for SaaS-based sales enablement, we have an incredibly compelling set of solutions for enterprise organizations that need to transform their approach to business-critical content. We will continue to focus on and leverage our SaaS and AI capabilities to capitalize on a Content Services market that is growing exponentially.”

James Hale, managing director of Parallax Capital Partners said, “Victor Shepherd is a perfect fit for the company. He can call on his vast experience to help expand the company’s market presence and achieve even more operational excellence.”

Raymond Schiavone, former Quark president and chief executive officer, has stepped down to focus on personal priorities. He served as Quark CEO for more than a decade and was instrumental in establishing the company as a leader in enterprise software.

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.
