• Management changes and key appointments at Premier

        • The Premier Paper Group has announced it is moving ahead with the next stage of its succession and continuity planning with a number of management changes and key appointments.

          Richard Minns, previously Group Supply Chain Director, has retired after 30 years in the industry. His logistics role has been filled by Chris Evans, Logistics Director, formerly of Marston’s PLC, and Frank Herbert, Supply Chain Manager, who was previously with Cadbury Schweppes. Also joining the team as Commercial Manager and with 22 years’ experience in the paper industry is Matt Ingram.

          Courtney Candler, who was the Group Finance Director, becomes a Non-Executive Director whilst Premier’s former Financial Controller Simon Taylor steps up into the Group Finance Director role.

          Early in 2016 Graham Griffiths became Chairman of the Group, creating a vacancy for the position of Managing Director which will be filled by Dave Allen, previously CEO at Paperlinx, who joins on 1st June 2016. Graham will become Non-Executive Chairman by the year end. Also joining the Supervisory Board as Non-Executive Director is Malcolm Cook, previously a Senior Partner in Corporate Finance, at BDO in Birmingham.

          Graham Griffiths said, “these changes, which are very much part of our succession and future planning process, have enabled us to build a strong and balanced senior team, with experience from both inside and outside of the paper and print industry. I am particularly delighted to welcome Dave Allen to the team who, as MD, will lead the next stage of Premier’s development.”
