Prior to joining Mimaki, Drion held senior marketing positions at a variety of high tech, IT and telecom companies, including Pyramid Analytics, Red Hat, Oracle, BEA Systems, British Telecom and MCI/WorldCom. Drion’s rich background in successful marketing of technical offerings in the B2B market will bring fresh thinking and expertise to Mimaki Europe's marketing efforts.
“I am excited to be joining Mimaki Europe,” Drion said. “I’ve been impressed with the company’s ability to rapidly introduce a large number of exciting and innovative products as well as the range of printing and cutting solutions Mimaki offers. This includes everything from printing on paper, plastics, rigid materials and cylindrical objects to its new 3DUJ-553 3D printer, the company’s first foray into the growing 3D market. I’ll be focused on a balance between Mimaki’s local and international interests with a goal of providing our growing partner network with the latest solutions, and ensuring they have the training necessary for their success and that of their customers. 2018 will be an exciting year!”
Prior to joining Mimaki Europe, Drion served as Director of Marketing for Pyramid Analytics, a recognised innovator in business intelligence, and spent a number of years in the open source software business. She graduated from the University of Amsterdam with degrees in Business Economics and Marketing.
“In addition to her strong marketing background, Danna will also bring deep knowledge and expertise in business intelligence and data analytics, helping Mimaki Europe strengthen its marketing efforts and further deepen customer relationships,” said Ronald van den Broek, General Manager Sales at Mimaki Europe. “She joins us at a very opportune time and has the right experience and knowledge to make significant contributions to the organisation. But the truly deciding factor was her background as an inspirational, motivational and strategic manager for companies, both large and small. I know she will add real value to our marketing efforts and more.”
