Nick Dixon leaves HH for next challenge
Friday, October 16, 2020
Nick Dixon has left HH Global 20 months after selling Blueberry Wave to the fast-expanding marketing services group.
Dixon returned to the printing industry in February 2019 when HH acquired a majority stake in his buy-and-build venture, Veriteva, which owned data marketing business Blueberry Wave.
He became a member of the global executive board at HH as a result.
Posting on LinkedIn, Dixon said: “I have really enjoyed working alongside the Blueberries for just under four years and also my colleagues at HH Global for the past 20 months.
“Both businesses complement one another and with HH Global’s recent acquisition of Inner Workings (a company nearly twice their size) both businesses are no doubt destined for greater things to come.”
HH Global has just completed the mega-merger deal to take over its much larger rival, InnerWorkings.
Dixon's future plans are unknown but Printweek understands he has no plans to retire.
Dixon has a long track record in business turnarounds and acquisitions. Prior to Veriteva he founded Lateral Group which involved turning around a number of distressed businesses, including Howitt.
Lateral Group was subsequently acquired by DST Output. DST’s UK customer communications business then went on to be acquired by Paragon Group.
