Keersmaekers said of Bilsen: “He has proven leadership skills and will ensure that Roland DG EMEA continues to focus and capitalise on existing and potential market opportunities throughout the region.
“For many years now Roland DG has sought to employ and promote the very best talent from around the globe. This has resulted in increased efficiencies across the board and a more agile business which is able to react quickly to the needs of the more than 200 diverse countries in which we operate. Gregory’s appointment will ensure we consolidate the growth and success within EMEA and ultimately strengthen Roland DG’s global position.”
