Klappe takes over responsibility as the managing director of Singapore-based OneVision Software APAC with immediate effect. With more than 25 years’ experience in the Asia-Pacific region under his belt, Klappe is considered a 'veteran' of the print industry.
Klappe has held a variety of managerial functions in trading companies like Ferrostaal and Norde International, which market integrated solutions combining printing machines and the corresponding printing software. Prior to this, Klappe was responsible for developing the Asian operations of leading printing machine manufacturers like Heidelberg Druckmaschinen and Manroland in his role as managing director and senior vice president of the relevant sales offices in Indonesia and the Asia-Pacific.
“We are pleased that we were able to attract Tim Klappe to our company. And we are convinced that his long experience, his comprehensive know-how about printing processes, and his far-reaching network spanning Asia and the Pacific will prove a genuine asset for the success of OneVision Software APAC,” says Hussein Khalil, CEO of OneVision Software.
Tim Klappe is looking forward to tackling his new professional challenges: “I have always believed the core element of my activity is to increase the efficiency of printing processes for commercial and digital printing companies – essentially the graphics industry – so they can complete more print runs in high quality in a shorter space of time,” Klappe says. “Good workflows and tools are the most important prerequisites for smooth-running printing and high print quality. OneVision’s software solutions not only combine the different printing procedure but also bundle all the processes at the print and media prepress stage.”
