Narrow web ink specialist, Pulse Roll Label Products has reorganised its global sales management to drive further UK and export market growth with the appointment of Richard Wood in the new role of UK & Ireland Sales Director working with Volker Michel who takes on the responsibility of Export Sales Director.
Richard’s appointment, effective from 1st February 2022, will support and build on the company’s strong UK market position as a specialist narrow web ink supplier to the label and packaging sector. Pulse Roll Label Products’ international business will be managed separately by Volker Michel, in his new role of Export Sales Director, as the company seeks to also drive further dynamic growth in strategic key markets elsewhere around the world. The two Sales Directors will work in close partnership.
Gary Seward said, “The decision to separate the sales management of our UK & Ireland and Export business plays a key part in our strategy to grow our domestic market share as well as expand our international distribution network and develop a dynamic and even stronger export customer base. We’ve grown significantly both at home and abroad during the past few years. Richard’s appointment will support and develop further our UK & Ireland customer base, and, at the same time, Volker will be able to focus exclusively on the support and development of our international business. Continuous improvement is a key driver for us. This reorganisation allows us to clearly focus on the markets in which we operate and keep improving service levels to our customers both at home and internationally.” Gary Seward continued, “Richard and I started out in the ink business working together more than three decades ago so I am delighted to welcome Richard to our team. With a long-standing background and career in the ink and narrow web industry, and as an experienced Sales Director, I am confident that Richard will be a great asset and I look forward to working with him once again. The past 18 months have been a challenging period for everyone in our industry, but we continue to remain resilient and to invest in our team. Together, we are looking forward to 2022 and new exciting opportunities for us and our customers around the world.”
