Antalis has announced that Nicholas Thompson has taken up the role of managing director for the UK and Ireland, replacing David Hunter who is retiring from the business.

Nicholas Thompson will be taking up the role after a short period of time as deputy managing director. He has been with Antalis for over nine years, more recently as its packaging director and prior to that as supply chain director. Nicholas’ new appointment ideally positions him to help with future growth and innovation with his background at both Antalis and in previous supply chain roles at Tesco, Sainsburys and Amazon.

He stated, ‘It is a great honour to be leading the team at Antalis and to take over from David, who has professionally overseen the many changes that the company has undertaken over the last 11 years. I intend to lead Antalis through the next phase of evolution, including strengthening its papers division and accelerating the growth in packaging and visual communications.’

During his tenure, David Hunter navigated the company through several acquisitions, significant growth and changes in ownership, in often challenging market conditions including the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic. More recently, he has steered the business through a major IT transformation and has been the driver of a profound health and safety culture throughout the business.

Nicholas added, ‘Understanding the many challenges that our customers face is imperative. We will be building on all the good work that has taken place recently including the development of Antalis’ sustainability strategy and environmental solutions that help our customers to achieve their own sustainability goals. Other top priorities for the business will be driving digital transformation and maintaining the company’s priority on health, safety and well being.’
