Antalis Packaging has continued to strengthen its expert team in the Dartford office with a raft of new appointments to support its rapid growth strategy.
It comes after an exceptional 12 months of growth for the packaging specialist, which in 2017, won 70 new clients for the business following the hugely successful launch of its free Smart Audit service.
Bradley Hyde joins as an account manager for Kent. With over seven years’ experience in the packaging industry, including roles at Kite Packaging and Smurfit Kappa, Bradley brings with him a wealth of experience, as well as specialist knowledge in corrugated packaging.
Meanwhile, Nick Stevens has been promoted from internal packaging coordinator role to account manager for London and Surrey. Nick has over 30 years’ experience in the luxury packaging market, gained in roles at British Loose Leaf and D2 Packaging.
As account managers, Bradley and Nick will be responsible for strengthening the sales of presentation packaging along with industrial packaging in their areas.
They will be accompanied by Adedayo Akinsulire, who has joined Antalis as a new business development executive. Fresh to the packaging industry, Adedayo will be working to grow the customer base in Sussex, utilising his wealth of experience gained in previous customer relationship roles at energy comparison company, uSwitch.
Kerry Rickwood, regional packaging centre manager for Antalis, commented: ‘Our new hires in Dartford demonstrate the commitment and investment in our offering to the south. We pride ourselves on developing the best team to deliver local expertise. It is important for us to develop strong relationships with our customers to make a real difference to their business, with the most efficient and innovative products and services. This ethos has already enabled us to help customers to overcome their packaging challenges, with many experiencing the benefits of costs savings in excess of 60% and a 70% improvement in packaging times.’
