NiceLabel, the world's leading developer of label and marking productivity software solutions, is pleased to announce the appointment of Chris Walsh in the position of Chief Executive Officer. His addition further builds on NiceLabel’s continuous growth globally and further enforces its mission to provide best-in-class technology and support services that enables companies to create and sustain value.

Chris Walsh succeeds Zvone Duplancic, the company founder, who has formally retired from all executive responsibility with the company. With extensive AIDC industry experience, having previously served as Managing Director of Zebra Technologies Europe, the newly appointed CEO has been NiceLabel’s external advisor for several years in advance of the founder’s planned retirement.

“Chris is taking over the leadership of NiceLabel at an exciting time. The business has grown substantially in recent years. While first generation label design application products are still widely used in the industry, the company’s growth has been driven by our focus on enabling enterprise and business users to achieve greater control and significantly higher levels of productivity from our substantial and ongoing investment in the next generation modular technology platform,” said  Zvone Duplancic, NiceLabel Founder.

“NiceLabel technology is strongly differentiated from adjacent competitors targeting users focused on creating value and sustaining competitive advantage through improved print productivity. With NiceLabel, companies really can do more, faster, with less and they can sustain this advantage over time. I am delighted to have the opportunity to contribute to the company’s ongoing global growth,” stated Chris Walsh, NiceLabel CEO.

In addition to 2015 Silver Gazelle and Top Exporting Company awards recognizing its high growth and success in EMEA, the Americas and APAC, NiceLabel was recently invited to join the London Stock Exchange ELITE program, designed to help ambitious high growth businesses prepare and structure for their next stage of growth.
