Mark Ritchie, a Senior Technology Executive, Provides Leadership as Vice President of Business Development
(25 Feb 2020) As part of Eclat Engineering’s strategic growth plan to widen its product offering and expand its global reach, the Company is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Ritchie. As the former Director of Libraries at PressReader, Mark brings a wealth of knowledge and relevant experience to Eclat Engineering. He will work alongside CEO, Jatin Baraiya, to strengthen the Company’s market potential by building a high performing business development team, seeking new market opportunities and executing on the strategic plan at a global scale.
“Mark is an exceptional leader who genuinely cares about his customers, team members and partners. We’re very fortunate to welcome Mark who possess incredible management skills combined with expertise in digital media and global markets,” said Jatin Baraiya.
Mark is well-known and respected in the industry with close to 14 years of experience working at PressReader where he was instrumental in building and developing the global sales and distribution network.
In speaking about current trends, Mark comments, “I believe that in the coming years the Open Access movement will bring a major shift within the publishing industry and libraries will need to evolve to become more user-centric so they remain relevant in today’s tech driven world. A product offering like MyLOFT, by Eclat will be a game changer because it provides content accessibility, discoverability and convenience – that libraries need to survive in the current landscape. I look forward to working with a young, talented and committed team at Eclat and to find new opportunities for growth.”
