GIRONA, Spain—Comexi, a global supplier of solutions for the printing and flexible packaging industry transformation, has appointed Diego Hervás as its new CEO as of Jan. 1. Hervás, who was born in Barcelona and has extensive executive experience, replaces Jeroen van der Meer, who had held the position since 2014 and who will continue to be involved with Comexi to ensure as efficient a transition as possible.
For more than a year, Hervás has been an independent member of the Comexi board. This has given him a broad understanding of both the market and of the structure and operation of the company. In addition, his professional profile is ideal for taking on the task of maximizing innovation and the use of technology at Comexi, according to the company.
Beginning in 2018, Hervás was COO at Plyzer Technologies, a company with branches in Barcelona and Toronto, which specializes in intelligent data management to improve brand positioning and identify client needs. He previously has held different executive positions for more than 14 years at Xerox Corp, where he led the European Graphic Communications Division.
