New National Managers for Consumer, Business Divs

7th December 2005


Canon New Zealand has announced the appointments of Craig Manson as the new National Manager of the company’s Consumer Imaging Products Group (CIPG) and John Devenney as the new National Manager of the Business Imaging Solutions Group (BISG). Both Craig and John will be responsible for all sales and marketing aspects within their respective departments.

In making the announcements Tony Wills, Managing Director, Canon New Zealand said: “In filling these critical positions, I am pleased to have been able to promote from within. Both Craig and John are extremely well-placed to help lead our business forward.”

For the last ten months Craig Manson was National Sales Manager for the BISG team, before making the switch to Canon CIPG. Prior to that he was General Manager for Schwarzkopf Professional New Zealand.

“In his time with Canon, Craig has led BISG from strength to strength – winning significant contracts in key vertical markets,” said Tony Wills. “His shift across to Canon’s consumer division will enable us to draw on his extensive career experience in the consumer area. I know Craig has some exciting plans in place for our Consumer Imaging Products Group.”

John Devenney takes up his new role having spent the last 20 years working with Canon in New Zealand and the UK, most recently as National Manager of Canon New Zealand Customer Care.

In commenting on John’s appointment Tony Wills says: “John has previously managed a similar role within the UK and has without a doubt much to offer BISG. He has made a valued contribution to Canon New Zealand over the past eight years and is very well placed to extend BISG beyond the current levels of success achieved by Craig and the rest of the BISG team.”

Dave Rudd has been promoted to the role of Assistant National Manager BISG, with specific responsibility for the Branch Sales operations.

These positions are effective immediately.
