Solopress appoints Phil Foster as head of business development

Print Solutions

Solopress has announced the appointment of Phil Foster to the role of head of business development, reporting directly to managing director Simon Cooper.

Phil started his career in the print industry over 35 years ago as a platemaker in pre-press, before making the move into sales.

Since then, Phil has held a variety of roles, building a formidable reputation within the industry. Following a stint running his own litho printing business, he cemented his position as a recognised figure in the print world during a successful seven year spell as senior sales executive at Saxoprint.

Phil’s role at Solopress will span both onboarding new business and maintaining key relationships. In addition to identifying businesses that could benefit from working with Solopress, he will also work with those businesses to make sure they get the most out of the relationship.

Simon Cooper said of the appointment, ‘With his vast experience in our industry, Phil is the perfect fit for this newly created head of business development role. Not only will print buyers learn more about how our current catalogue can support their business, but we also hope to identify areas where new products and variations could better meet their needs.’

Phil commented, ‘I am thrilled to be joining Solopress at this exciting point in its journey. I prefer a consultative approach over the hard sell, and I am happy that I will be able to put my print knowledge to good use as I introduce the business to new customers.’

Phil’s appointment is part of an ongoing program of recruitment and investment by the Essex based printer that will see it expand it payroll, plant list and square footage further within the year.
