Sun Chemical (Parsippany, NJ) has named Charles Murray president of North American Inks. In this role, Murray will be responsible for all of Sun Chemical’s North American ink business.

Murray brings 27 years of industry experience and knowledge to the position and most recently worked as the managing director and corporate vice president of Sun Chemical’s business in the UK, Ireland and Nordic markets since 2004.

“Charles is very familiar with the issues and challenges currently impacting Sun Chemical’s customers in North America, because those same trends are facing our customers in Northern Europe,” says Rudi Lenz, president and CEO, Sun Chemical. “Charles’ understanding of our markets and his hands-on leadership style is exactly what NAI needs. I am confident he will further strengthen our business and the partnerships with our customers.”

Murray replaces Brian Leen, who is leaving the graphic arts industry after an 18-year career at Sun Chemical. Leen led the company’s North American business since 2008.

“Brian has made countless contributions to Sun Chemical, and we are grateful for his time with us. We wish him well in his next endeavors,” says Lenz.
