ExaClair has promoted Lawrence Savage from within the Marketing team to Marketing Manager after two years at the company.
Lawrence will be taking over from Clement Rouillard, who is moving into the newly created position of UK Category Manager.
Reporting directly to Managing Director Mark Daisley, Lawrence is moving into his new position at a time when the priority is adapting to the unprecedented times presented by COVID-19, using marketing channels to support, develop and maximise their ability to assist their customers’ stock and supply chains.
Lawrence says despite the turbulent period, he is optimistic about the direction the company is heading in, acknowledging that the organisation has a strong portfolio of internationally respected brands.
He added, “we are celebrating a couple of important brand milestones, including the first centenary of the G. Lalo premium writing brand and 350 successful years of Herbin, known for its iconic inks and calligraphy sets. During this period there has also been a rise in online sales for our Décopatch and Clarefontaine craft and fine art brands and we are fortunate that our portfolio includes go-to brands such as these.”
Mark Daisley, Managing Director of ExaClair, says with a wealth of marketing experience across the manufacturing sector, as well as within the stationery industry, Lawrence is well placed to lead ExaClair’s marketing team.
He added, “there is an exceptional opportunity for growth within the office product, fine art and handicraft markets, and with Clement concentrating on category management and Lawrence on marketing, we are in a good position to overcome the challenges ahead.”
