Ronnie Oeschger has stepped down as MD of NOR Paper, the paper specialist in the Bytes Document Solutions group, wholly owned by JSE-listed Altron. Oeschger has been with Xerox SA and Bytes Document Solutions for 12 years. He leaves at the end of September, and management is planning his exit and will soon nominate a replacement MD.
Group CEO Hennie du Plessis says Oeschger is leaving to pursue some personal interests. Ronnie has played a fundamental part in the success of our group as a whole, and in the last year that of NOR, which is now among the continent’s leading paper merchants.
In total, Oeschger was involved in printing – both offset and digital and converting markets – for 32 years. He started with the then Xerox SA in 1999 in the Office Supplies business, during which time annual revenues grew from R79 million to R220 million.
He was promoted to Divisional Manager of the Xerox Office Equipment operation and in 2010 promoted to Divisional Director of Xerox System Sales in Bytes Document Solutions, the distributor of Xerox to 26 African countries.
He bases his steady success on customers, who, he says come first, second and third.
