Inkbench, Inc, the leading brand management platform for companies to share, customize and protect their brand assets, announced today it is entering the UK and European markets under the guidance of its new VP, EMEA, Rob Howgate. Based in London, Rob will lead sales in the UK, European and Middle Eastern Regions.

Recognized as one of Management Today’s Top 40 over 40*, Rob launched his impressive career as an Advertising Account Executive at standouts, including News International and The Mirror Group. Then, as Commercial Manager for the Automobile Association, Rob built a revenue base of $5.5 million US (£4million) across their digital and publishing platforms. Engaged in the digital and Ad Tech space, Rob headed sales for Burst Media, BabyCentre and Captify before taking on his position as General Manager, EMEA at ConnectDG, a land and expand consultancy that helped US and European tech businesses launch into new markets overseas.

Marketing departments are busier than ever, especially within franchise, enterprise and pharmaceutical organizations. Allowing remote teams to collaborate while empowering them to customize their own marketing materials, while maintaining brand consistency and control is an increasing necessity. Inkbench is the ideal cloud-based solution for day-to-day marketing production processes. Plus, the company is backed by a group of industry executives who understand the needs of the verticals they serve and can provide custom brand solutions.

“I’m looking forward to introducing Inkbench to franchisors and enterprise businesses as we launch in the UK, and help them achieve substantial cost savings, increased productivity and smarter content and creative workflows,” said Howgate. According to Inkbench CEO, George Abraham, “We are thrilled to expand our footprint into the European market and are confident that Rob is the perfect person to lead the charge!”
