With the return of Johan Hansson to Sweden, Roxen has named Jorge E. Mejía as its new director of business development for the Americas.
After 15 years in NYC, Hansson has returned to Scandinavia to be chief executive at Stampen Media.
A veteran of the news media industry, Mejía will be responsible for Roxen's sales in North, Central and South America, working from a sales office in Miami. He joins Roxen in time for next week's INMA World Congress.
He was most recently regional sales director for CCI Europe, responsible for Mexico, Central and South America. He also has several years of experience through senior IT positions at major newspapers including Naples Daily News, Sarasota Herald-Tribune and Sun-Sentinel.
He has an MBA in international business from Nova Southern University, Florida, a bachelor's degree in professional studies from Lynn University, Florida, and an associate's degree in computer science from Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, Massachusetts.
Roxen chief executive Per Östlund says Mejía's knowledge and deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing customers will enable Roxen to make its tools even more available and affordable: "Jorge is a competent and warm individual and a welcome addition to our growing team of professionals," he says.
