As part of its growth plans for its packaging division, Antalis has strengthened its UK account team with the hire of another industry professional.
Stephen Herring joins Antalis Packaging as key account manager from Coventry-based Macfarlane Packaging, where he was responsible for managing and co-ordinating the integration of 22 Regional Distribution Centres (RDC’s) for multi-national accounts.
Working in the Midlands’ account team, Stephen will be responsible for building relationships with Antalis customers, ensuring the company meets and exceeds needs, while helping them to increase sales and profitability.
With more than 20 years of experience at a number of industry leading companies, including UK Mail, TNT Post UK, DHL and most recently Macfarlane, Stephen is well placed to meet the demands of the role having established himself as a strategic manager, able to forge long-lasting relationships and deliver exceptional results.
Commenting on his new role, Stephen said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity to join the team here at Antalis Packaging. I’ve always been ambitious and to join a company that not only leads the way in the industry, but is seeking to change the way we do business for the better, is an amazing opportunity.
“I’m looking forward to getting under the skin of the business, which with the company’s extensive product ranges may take some time, and making a positive impact in my new role at Antalis Packaging.”
Leigh Gracie, channel director for packaging, said, “The investment in our Packaging team, as well as in new products and services, is testament to our commitment to expanding our packaging offer. With an ever-increasing demand from manufacturers, distributors and retailers for the very latest packaging technology, we pride ourselves on developing the best team to help our customers find the smartest, most efficient and innovative packaging processes for their businesses.”
