Kornit possesses the technology and resources to drive the transition to digital, and it is evident that the company is positioned to disrupt the end markets it serves. That transition parallels digital transitions that I have seen throughout my career. My previous experience will therefore help to drive the execution of Kornit’s growth plans.
