Murphy’s specific focus will be on third-party integration projects. Previously he had been a technical specialist and product manager for Heidelberg UK for 18 years.
“Almost all modern MIS installations are required to interface and integrate with various workflows such as Web2Print, Prepress, Press and Digital,” said Murphy, who has been in the printing industry for almost 30 years. “I’m helping to advise on and configure these complicated connections. It’s great to have joined market-leader Tharstern.”
Keith McMurtrie, managing director of Tharstern, said: “John has worked alongside me and the Tharstern team for over 15 years on various high profile CIP4 projects and exhibitions. His appointment brings an extra dimension to our experienced and highly customer-focused staff as we continue to expand in the UK, USA and in other parts of the world. John’s considerable expertise will make a significant contribution to Tharstern and to our clients’ businesses.”
