Taopix Announces Appointment Of Tessa Du Plooy As Marketing Manager


Du Plooy comes to Taopix from the South African full service print and printing services company Jetline. Having spent the last 14 years working in the photo commerce consumer industry, she brings an invaluable wealth of knowledge and experience for the benefit of Taopix customers worldwide.

In her new role, Du Plooy will take full responsibility for all aspects of marketing for Taopix globally. Having been a customer of Taopix already for the last nine years, she is uniquely positioned to also help Taopix customers grow effectively and will take an active role in building the Professional Services division launched by Taopix earlier this year.

‘We’ve known Du Plooy for many years and have been continually impressed with her knowledge of the sector. She understands our business and has an intimate knowledge of our product, but most importantly, she has an incredible understanding of the business of our customers and specifically how to build and grow successful photo commerce businesses,’ explained Nigel Lee, executive chairman at Taopix. ‘Being able to speak ‘fluent customer’ is invaluable and I’m sure she will be an enormous asset to the senior team here at Taopix. We are focused 100% on the success of our customers in everything we do, and having her on board will give us invaluable insight and help us constantly improve,’ added Lee.

‘I am passionate about playing a role in preserving memories – you cannot simply look at Photo Commerce as a business. You are helping ensure that years from now, your clients will have something concrete to treasure every special moment captured. The years that I have spent working with Taopix as a client has made it clear that they will do whatever it takes to ensure their customers’ success, and I am honored to play part in growing the business,’ said Du Plooy.

‘I have played a part in building and growing two Photo Commerce empires, and if it has taught me one thing, it is that you need to be the leader, not the follower. Sure, companies will try and replicate your innovations, but take it as a compliment, not an insult. One thing Taopix understands more than any other software provider in the space is that innovation is king and this is exactly what helps Taopix’s customers differentiate,’ she added.

At Photokina 2018, Taopix is launching some very innovative products. This is a great opportunity for customers and prospects to come and meet the Taopix team and to meet Du Plooy in person.
