Published on 21.05.2024

Mutoh Europe nv, the EMEA headquarters of large format printer manufacturer Mutoh Industries Co. Ltd, Japan, announces that Frank Schenk will take over as Managing Director of Mutoh Europe nv & Mutoh Deutschland GmbH on 1 July. In this new role, Frank Schenk will lead all sales, pre-sales, logistics, marketing, product and application support and after-sales support activities for Mutoh across the EMEA business area. 

Frank Schenk, who has been General Manager Sales for Mutoh since July 2021, takes over the role of Managing Director from Mitsuo Takatsu, who has led the company since 2020. During his tenure, Mitsuo Takatsu has focused on strengthening the company’s existing sales and marketing framework and preparing Mutoh for sustainable growth in the EMEA region. Since summer 2021, Takatsu has been working closely with Frank Schenk to implement further improvements and drive the change process forward. After successfully handing over his current responsibilities to Frank Schenk, Mitsuo Takatsu will return to Japan at the end of September 2024.

In his new role as Managing Director, Frank Schenk will continue to be supported by A. Ogawa, Managing Director, Chairman of Mutoh Europe, and by Stephan Heintjens, who was recently promoted to General Manager Applications, Marketing, Service & QA and has been with Mutoh for more than 30 years. In his current role as GM Sales EMEA, Schenk will be replaced at the beginning of June by Daniel Morassut, who has many years of sales experience in the professional printing industry with OKI® and SEIKO®.  

From 28 May, Mutoh Europe will be exhibiting at Drupa in Düsseldorf, the world’s largest print and media trade show, to showcase Mutoh’s current and future digital printer portfolio for sign and display, sublimation printing, direct-to-object and direct-to-substrate proofing. For more information:
