Pensord has announced the appointment of renowned PDF pioneer Jon Bessant – reputed to be the most qualified Adobe PDF specialist within the print industry outside Adobe Systems themselves - giving Pensord customers a pre-press service to equal that of any print company in Europe.
Bessant is a ‘treble’ ACE (Adobe Certified Expert) in Acrobat 4, 5 and 6 Professional and he is currently registering with Adobe to become an ACI (Adobe Certified Instructor). Jon is also an Enfocus Certified Trainer and has beta tested a number of products for leading pre-press software and hardware suppliers.
He joins Pensord from S&G, where he completed over 160 PDF installations, and shared his expertise in all pre-press applications. His expertise and industry reputation make him a great asset for Pensord’s pre-press department.
Pensord Chief Executive Tony Jones says: “I have worked with Jon in the past, and I know his experience will prove invaluable to customers coming to terms with PDF workflows, and those looking to step up to the next level. This business is about people, and in Jon we have the right person to complement our existing strong pre-press team. He is a real authority in the industry and we are delighted to have him working for us.”
Bessant’s appointment follows the arrival last year of Commercial Director Darren Coxon, also a former S&G senior figure, at a company which is now wholly owned by Tony Jones following his MBO early last summer. Jones again: “Jon will link up again with Darren – both are very customer focused individuals with great interpersonal skills.”
