• BOSS announces new CEO

        • BOSS has appointed Amy Hutchinson as the next Chief Executive Officer. Amy succeeds Philip Lawson who is leaving after 3 years in the role and is taking early retirement to spend more time with his family.

          Amy will start a process of working with Philip to transfer into this role, while she completes a critical rebranding project and will attend the BOSS Leaders of the Future Conference on Friday 8th March and BOSS Members' Day on Tuesday 14th May, before formally taking on the role full time after the BPIF's Members' Day on Tuesday 9th July.

          Geoffrey Betts, the BOSS Chairman said, "following an extensive recruitment process, I am delighted to announce Amy's appointment to this role. In her current position as Marketing Director at the British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF), she's already well known to many members, as she has brought her and her team's expertise and energy to help the successful development of BOSS, notably at the annual awards, the Leaders of the Future Conference, and all of BOSS's main membership engagement activities.

          "I'd also like to express my gratitude to Philip. During his time with us, BOSS has developed its position, widened its engagement with members and enhanced its reputation as the representative Trade Association for our wonderful, fast changing and forward-looking sector. Amy will build on that foundation, bringing a strong marketing, events and membership engagement perspective to the development of BOSS.”

          Philip said “I’ve worked closely together with Amy over the last few years and she will be outstanding as our CEO. She already has a good knowledge of our industry, as well as knowing a lot of our members through her work at BOSS events. Her previous experience helping to build both the profile of the BPIF and her own personal brand within the print sector will be a huge advantage.

          "I’ve really enjoyed the job and I’m sure our wonderful industry will give Amy as much support as I’ve enjoyed over the last few years. One thing is certain, there are exciting times ahead. I wish Amy, with the support of Charles Jarrold at BPIF and all of the BOSS Board all the success for the future.”

          Amy added, “I’m delighted to embark on this exciting opportunity to develop BOSS for the future. Whilst print and office supplies are different industries, there are many parallels in terms of the challenges and opportunities they face. I’m looking forward to meeting members and identifying how BOSS can best support them to positively contribute to a dynamic industry.”
