Alon Bar-Shany, general manager leaves HP Indigo

Alon Bar-Shany, the general manager of HP Indigo for the past 15 years has announced his departure from the company. His departure will mark the end of Bar-Shany as the worldwide face of HP Indigo.

Bar-Shany first joined HP Indigo after leaving Israel Chemicals in 1995 where he held key executive positions in finance, strategic planning, and business development. Bar-Shany’s departure is a part of an ongoing restructuring within the company.

In March this year, Bar-Shany presided over the launch of Indigo’s new range of printing technologies including the HP Indigo 100K digital press which he described as being ‘born to run.’ The US-based Haim Levit will be his successor at HP Indigo. Levit’s most recent role was to lead the worldwide go-to-market for HP’s Industrial Graphics organization.

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.

  1. I think a huge loss to HP-Indigo. Although I was not one of the trade journalists close to him we saw each other at least from waving distance maybe 20 times in the past 20 years at drupas, labelexpos, interpacks, Igas and maybe a couple of times in Singapore, Israel and maybe also in the US and Austraiia. He is a young and obviously brilliant organizer and communicator. His quick grasp of the intricacies of new things such as digital cartons and flexible packaging have demonstrated a great focus on making the future possible. I am of course keen to know the real reason for his departure and where he is going and also what are the real financial numbers of HP Indigo.
