Linx appoints new Managing Director

Global coding and marking solutions provider Linx Printing Technologies has appointed Jose Gomez as Managing Director following the retirement of Nigel Hood.

Jose joins the St Ives, Cambridgeshire-based company after 17 years with fellow Veralto business Videojet, where he held a variety of leadership roles, most recently as Vice-President and General Manager of Videojet Latin America.

A graduate of Ecole Superieure de Commerce de Toulouse University in France, Jose has Bachelor’s degrees in Finance and Economics, and has completed an advanced executive programme at IESE University in Spain.

He comments: “I am thrilled to join a great team at Linx and partner with them to continue delivering innovative coding and marking solutions to our customers. At Linx we play a critical role in helping our customers improve their productivity and I am very excited about the breakthrough IoT solution ‘Printernet’ we will be launching soon.”

“With Jose’s extensive experience at Videojet, and his track record of building and developing highly effective teams, I am very confident that he will continue the strong leadership that drives Linx’s success,” says Joakim Weidemanis, Veralto’s Executive Vice President, Production Identification and Water Quality Platforms.

“I congratulate Nigel on his retirement. I thank him for his long service and accomplishments throughout his career, in particular his contribution at Linx where he has led the team through outstanding growth in 2016 and 2017.”
