Women of Distinction - Kathy Dell
VP, Partner Relations, Elixir Technologies Corporation
Kathy Dell is an experienced veteran of the high volume transaction output community. Currently serving as vice president of partner relations at Elixir Technologies, Dell began her career with Intran, the inventor of the first graphics, font and forms editors for the Xerox 9700 printing system. While at Intran, Dell worked with her longtime career mentor, Basit Hamid, who went on to form Elixir Technologies. Later, Varityper Corporation, a producer of cold-typesetting equipment, recruited Dell from Intran to bring composition technology to high-quality offset printing companies. It wasn't long before Xerox spotted Dell and brought her to El Segundo, Calif. to speed the integration of Elixir's products with Xerox's systems and sales force. Dell moved on to Elixir Technologies, where she's been for more than 18 years.
