Greenwich, CT-based Presstek, Inc., a leading supplier of digital offset printing solutions to the printing and communications industries, announces Joe Demharter, former president of the Pitman Company, has joined Presstek to lead its United States and Canadian sales efforts. Demharter will report to Jeff Jacobson, chairman, president and CEO of Presstek. The company also announces Mark J. Levin, who has served as president of the company’s Americas Region, is leaving Presstek to pursue other opportunities.

Jacobson says, “Joe Demharter is one of the most respected leaders in the graphic arts industry. During his eight years as president of Pitman, the largest distributor of pre-press equipment and supplies in North America, he led the company through a period of dramatic sales growth. During his 38 years in the graphic arts business, he has earned an enviable reputation for his industry knowledge, sales leadership and customer focus. We are excited that he has elected to join our management team and are confident that he will make a significant and positive impact.”

Commenting on the departure of Mark Levin as president of the Americas Region, Jacobson says, “Mark Levin is a talented, hard working and widely respected executive, and we appreciate his contributions to Presstek over the past few years.”
