Goss Promotes Navarre to Head Worldwide Sales, Marketing and Product Management
DURHAM, NH—January 29, 2010—Goss International has promoted Jacques Navarre to the position of senior vice president of sales, marketing and product management. Navarre, who has more than 30 years of experience in the printing industry, most recently headed the Goss International sales organization in Europe. Dick Schultz will continue to serve as senior vice president of global sales for the company.

Navarre began his professional career in the paper and board industry before joining Harris Marinoni in 1978. He has since held positions across a broad range of departments, including sales, service and product marketing.
“I feel invigorated by this opportunity to work with our customers and with the Goss International team in an expanded capacity,” Navarre explains. “Our technology portfolio and global organizational structure can provide unique advantages, and I look forward to helping printers and publishers use them to create the high-value print production platforms of the future.”
