Gardiner appoints new European sales team
The Gardiner Graphics Group has appointed a new European sales team, setting its sights firmly on raising the profile of its manufactured products, including that of new development Touchshield, throughout EMEA territories.
Touchshield is the latest development from the group. A unique range of clear, watermarked anti-microbial self-adhesive protective films designed to slow the spread of bacteria and viruses. The protective film, manufactured in the UK at the company’s Banbury facility recently obtained ISO 21702, reaching efficacies of up to 93.41% against viral activity.
CEO Tom Powell commented, ‘We truly believe that our new developments can support all businesses in all sectors. I am delighted to have our new team aboard and look forward to seeing them fly the flag for our products.’
New appointment Daniel Coelho, sales manager for EMEA, said of the new venture: ‘I am very happy to join this fantastic team. Gardiner Graphics has been consolidating its position in the English market in recent years and is now looking to expand its presence in the EMEA market, and it is precisely this effort that I join to achieve the success. We are going through a delicate moment, but Gardiner Graphics was able to reinvent itself by investing in the development of absolutely differentiating products such as TouchShield.’
Daniel brings with him over 10 years’ experience within large format, including strategic product sales positions within Roland DG. With Gardiner having recently been appointed EMEA media manufacturer for Roland DG, he also hopes to help further cement the company’s offering to the Roland DG network.
Joining Daniel and EMEA sales director Matt Littler is Zbigniew Adamski, sales manager responsible for Eastern European Territories. Zbigniew’s adventure in print includes 14 years with Antalis Poland as sales director for the Visual Communications sector. The new challenge with GGS is one that he is elated to be part of and is looking forward to working with the team in advancing awareness of the unique products and services throughout Eastern Europe.
The Gardiner Group also welcomed Laura Ashton-Smith, recently appointed within sales development in the established UK team, to further support product awareness and distribution channels.
Tom Powell summarised, ‘The last eight months for our company has been one unbelievable ride. It has been incredibly humbling to see the efforts of the entire team pushing forward, reinventing, diversifying. From being acknowledged by the Great Britain Inspirations campaign for its contributions toward PPE, through to bringing Touchshield to life – the ambitions have remained rooted in providing solutions for our sector. Our new appointments join a very experienced team, determined to see print communities thriving.’
