Codehost Inc. announces that Eric Jaffe Levy has been hired as the software company’s General Manager of Printing Systems. He joined Codehost in late April, shortly before the release of BrightQ™, Codehost’s Unix/Linux printing solution.

Mr. Levy comes to Codehost with 11 years of experience in the printing and computing industry. Most recently Levy worked with Canon Business Solutions West as a Senior Network Analyst where he was responsible for all third party product analysis and acquisition.

Previous to his tenure at Canon, Levy spent 2 years as the Vice President of Client Services for Veon, Inc. a leading provider of broadband technology. Levy also played a critical role in the Philips Electronics acquisition of Veon, Inc. Prior to Veon Levy spent six years with Electronics for Imaging, Inc., holding several positions along the way including but not limited to; Program and Quality Assurance Manager, Sr. Technical Services Manager, Australia Account Manager, and European Technical Services Sr. Manager. During this time Levy deployed and managed both EFI’s domestic and European Technical Services operations and oversaw all technical communications with OEM’s technical services teams, ensuring that partner objectives were achieved.

“His real world field experience with products, vendors and OEMs instantly provides us with the intimate market knowledge and leadership this position requires,” said Codehost CEO, Sam Bizri. “He is the perfect fit to help us achieve our goals.”

Levy’s primary responsibilities will be to manage Codehost’s current line of printing centric products and services, while executing Codehost’s goal of reducing the labor and complexity associated with cross-platform printing cohesiveness. Our core client side focus will continue to be on Unix and Linux, but the enterprise products will focus on multiple OS support and remote BrightQ™ administration.

“Along with our core technology focus, we are also very excited about establishing industry partnerships in order to assist the printing OEMs in entering the growing Unix and emerging Linux printing market,” said Levy. “Not to be too cliché, but we are working to make printing much Brighter than it currently is.”
