Meet Applications Specialist Nigel Wild

Nigel Wild, Applications Specialist at Global Graphics Software

Meet Nigel Wild, an appplications specialist and responsible for workflow in our SmartDFE™. Nigel joined us in 2022.

How did your career path lead you to Global Graphics Software?

I started life as an electronics engineer working for Misomex, servicing and installing CAD, Laser Stepper, and Step & Repeat machines. As the technology moved, so did I; Graphoprint was where I found my passion for workflow whilst working in the platemaking department, helping to introduce their first digital platemaking workflow.

Having enjoyed frontline technology, I was drawn to Artwork Systems (AWS, who have many developers now working at HYBRID Software) and seized an opportunity to join them as an application specialist. At AWS I supported their PCC pageflow system which evolved into Nexus.

More recently and over the past few years, I have been involved with a multinational packaging specialist Brand Imaging Solutions, a brand management and reprographic trade shop, working with brands such as Coca Cola, Del Monte, Weetabix, Vimto and Hallmark specializing in workflow automation.

What do you enjoy most about your role at Global Graphics Software ?

Demonstrations and presentations to people. I love demonstrating how our software simplifies routine and challenging operations, reducing common pain points for their companies, saving them a lot of time. I have to say especially after COVID, I enjoy the interaction with my colleagues, discussing new ideas between different teams with such a large group – it is amazing how solutions evolve and are implemented throughout our software product range.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Being Manchester born and bred, I have followed Manchester City Football Club since 1978.

What are two ‘hybrid’ qualities about you?

This is a hard one to answer. I suppose, having worked in the printing industry in most areas, from printing, prepress, supplying services, hardware, and software solutions, I have had the honor to meet so many talented people. With everyone I meet I am always learning new stuff allowing me to constantly evaluate new and existing methods and processes. This sets me in good stead for my current role as an applications specialist as this is a true hybrid role between sales and technical.
