It is with great pleasure and much excitement that Antalis South Africa Pty (Ltd) opened their doors for the return of an old friend. Jean Lloyd, who stood at the helm of Kodak South Africa for a number of years before heading off to Belgium and the United Kingdom, has returned to head up the Digital Printing arm of Kodak for the Middle Eastern and African countries.
“I am thrilled to have come home having spent more than five years developing my skills in the European market. But, as the saying goes, home is where the heart is and mine is firmly here in Africa – the weather certainly helps too!” shared Lloyd.
“As we know Kodak has been and continues to go through some internal changes but this is yet another stamp of approval from them and yet more proof that the increasing Inkjet business in Africa is set to stay.” boasted Keith Solomon, Director of Antalis.
Antalis really is setting the trend and proving to be a championship business model for Kodak. I feel privileged to have the wealth of experience, in the Antalis team, at my fingertips. Although I’ve been with Kodak for more than 13 years I have never been more excited at the opportunities I see available to us in the countries that form part of my portfolio; obviously with a keen focus on South Africa.
South Africa is presenting as a huge opportunity for Kodak to broaden the Inkjet side of the business and I am confident that, with the help of Antalis, the focus and dedication we all have will pay huge dividends for both organisations “ concluded Lloyd.
