EVP & President
European Upload & Print Businesses
Kees Arends oversees Cimpress’ upload and print businesses including Druck.at, Easyflyer, Exagroup, Pixartprinting, Printdeal, Tradeprint and WIRmachenDRUCK. He works closely with the CEOs and managing directors of these businesses, supporting them in their growth efforts.
A serial entrepreneur, Kees has founded and built five different companies in the last 25 years. In 1994 he founded Vancom Netherlands, the first privately owned Dutch operator in public transportation which he grew to be a €220 million business before selling it to Arriva Plc.
Kees was a shareholder and CEO of Albumprinter BV (Albelli) which Cimpress acquired in 2011. Finding the promise of helping drive an entrepreneurial spirit at Cimpress compelling, Kees returned to our company in 2015.
Kees studied at Nijenrode Business School (the Netherlands).
