Canon has hired Tony Wills as Document Solutions Business Unit director for Canon UK and Ireland. He will provide strategic input on taking new products and services to market through the channel.

Wills said: “I'm pleased to be re-joining Canon UK&I at such a pivotal moment in the evolution of the industry. While the current environment is very challenging for all, I see this as an ideal time to look to the future and make the necessary adjustments to the organisation.

“In so doing, we will continue to deliver products and services that are of direct benefit and value to our customers to enable them to develop and thrive, whilst also future proofing their infrastructures.”
