Canon appoints Mathew Faulkner as EMEA Director, Marketing & Innovation, Wide Format Printing Group

June 13, 2022

Canon Europe has appointed Mathew Faulkner to the role of EMEA Director, Marketing & Innovation, Wide Format Printing Group. In this position, Mathew is responsible for strategic and operational marketing for the wide format printing business, which includes the imagePROGRAF, Colorado, Arizona, ColorWave and PlotWave product lines.

Mathew brings extensive experience and knowledge of the print sector to this senior role, having fulfilled a range of marketing roles in Canon’s production print business over the last decade. This has included almost five years working in applications-led marketing and business development for wide format, following two years marketing the imagePROGRAF portfolio. Most recently, Mathew has been focused on customer and product marketing in Canon’s cutsheet toner business, successfully launching a series of digital presses and workflow products, as well as driving insight-led educational and business development initiatives for professional print customers.

Canon’s Wide Format Printing business serves broad markets from Architecture, Engineering, CAD & Manufacturing (AEC&M) to photo and fine art and from display graphics to interior décor. The product portfolio includes the roll-to-roll Colorado series and the flatbed Arizona family for large format graphics print service providers; the imagePROGRAF series for photographers, graphics producers, creative agencies and in-house print departments; and the ColorWave and PlotWave printers for corporate workspaces, copy shops and production environments.

Mathew comments, “My ambition has always been to help print businesses to succeed – whether that’s creating a smarter workflow or helping them find new areas of growth, and I’m bringing that same focus into my new role. Canon has a world-class wide format offering, from innovative large format print technologies to the software solutions that support them, to the specialist partners we work with to help customers work smarter. I’m excited to come back into the vibrant world of wide format print and inspire our customers with all of the creative applications and growth opportunities that are within their reach.”

Mathew started his career working in technical design for a packaging and print manufacturing business, subsequently co-founding a technology business to develop inkjet printing, CAD and prototyping systems for packaging.

He currently sits on the council of the Independent Print Industries Association (IPIA) and is Chairman of its Training and Education subcommittee. He is also a member of the marketing steering group for the not-for-profit organisation Two Sides, which promotes the sustainability of the graphic communications supply chain.

Mathew will report into the newly appointed European Production Planning, Marketing & Innovation Senior Director, Jennifer Kolloczek.

She comments, “With Mathew’s wealth of wide format industry knowledge and his customer-centric approach, he’s the perfect choice for this role. We’re very excited to have him on board and look forward to seeing him work closely with our customers and partners to unlock their potential and continue to drive this dynamic part of our production print business forward.”
