ROCKVILLE, Md. -- Continuing its rapid growth in North America, SAXoTECH, Inc., announced the opening of a western regional sales and support office outside of Sacramento, Calif.
Lou Fifer has been hired to lead the SAXoTECH, Inc. operations on the West Coast. As V.P. of Customer Fulfillment, he will lead a team that provides technical sales support, workflow analysis, product implementation, and long-term support for all customers located west of the Mississippi River.
Fifer joins SAXoTECH after one year with Unisys, where he served as Project Manager coordinating the replacement of SII System/55 Editorial & Advertising systems with Hermes Editorial and AdCenter replacement systems in two major western U.S. newspapers.
"It is particularly exciting to be offering SAXoTECH's very mature and feature rich products to the small-to-medium sized market place that SAXoTECH has chosen to serve," said Fifer. "SAXoTECH has very carefully designed, developed, tested and then sold their products such that we are not selling new or to-be-developed software, but rather proven products that are in 'live' use every day. SAXoTECH is a very refreshingly professional organization and one which I am honored to be associated."
Fifer brings to SAXoTECH extensive publishing and publishing systems integration experience from over 20 years in various management and executive positions in printing plant operations, project management, product development, product line management, and customer services. Fifer has served in these positions with some of the major computer-aided publishing systems integration firms in our industry, including Unisys, IBM, System Integrators, Inc. (SII) and Logicon-Intercomp.
"SAXoTECH was very fortunate to be able to hire someone with Lou's tremendous experience and knowledge to start our western operations," said Frank Loversky, President of SAXoTECH, Inc. "That office will be in very capable hands."
Fifer has held the position of Chief Operating Officer / VP of Operations with several companies, including Integrating Technology Consortium, Paradigm Integrated Networks, and Hotel Information Systems. In addition to these positions, as Director of CapitolBank of Sacramento, a locally owned commercial bank, and as Executive Vice President and Director of AccessCapital, a regional new business technology incubator, Fifer assisted in the conceptualizing, the business founding & organizational development, the capitalization and technology staffing of several start-up technology companies in the Northern California region.
Fifer has assumed all sales and operations responsibilities in the western U.S. for SAXoTEXH, Inc., and is in the process of adding staff and establishing an office to support the company's online and print media newspaper systems sales, integrations, and support activities.
