New York, NY, September 8, 2016 - Acertitude, a purpose-driven executive search firm on a mission to unleash human potential, has tapped Ulysses Wong as CEO of Enbi, a global supplier of paper transport, fusing, and image transfer rollers for the office equipment industry.
This strategic hire marks a critical step in Enbi’s plans to accelerate growth globally as Wong will drive the expansion of market share in North America, Europe, and Asia and explore strategic adjacencies. He will lead the executive team in continuing to drive operational synergies and best practices.
The multilingual executive brings 20 years of global technology experience leading sales, operations, and technical functions at publicly traded companies, including IBM, Hitachi, Logitech, and Xyratex.

“Ulysses is a proven, record-setting GM and a highly sought-after sales, marketing, and services executive for global companies,” said O’Neill. “His experience creating new revenue engines in new markets and regions uniquely positions him to succeed in his CEO role at Enbi.”
In 2015, Enbi was acquired by Platinum Equity, a global private equity firm. Wong’s hire is pivotal for Platinum’s aggressive growth strategy for the company. The Enbi story is one of innovation, continuous operational improvement, and rigorous attention to quality. The company boasts strong, long-term relationships with its customers with operations in the USA, Europe, and Asia.
