Continuing the investment in its future growth, Glossop Cartons appointed Matthew Clarke as Sales Manager earlier this year.
Matt brings 10 years experience in the packaging sector with a proven record of managing accounts worth £20 million for Mayr-Malnof Packaging and worked there alongside Glossop Cartons’ Managing Director, Wayne Fitzpatrick. Matt will work closely with Wayne and sit on the senior management team to review the sales strategy that is going to support the ongoing growth of Glossop Cartons.
Matt’s remit is to grow the independent business sector that Glossop Cartons has established over its 35 years, maximising on the good progress Wayne made around stock holding and shorter lead times during his time as Sales Director.
Said Matt: “This opportunity to join Glossop Cartons is an exciting step in my career. The style of business based on good service and quality really appeals to me. I know from experience that people definitely buy from people in this industry, so those relationships and service levels are hugely important. Equally, I was attracted by the huge potential at Glossop Cartons and their future growth. I think the opportunity suits my skill sets and capabilities well and I will be looking to marry the relationship side of the business with growth on a corporate level.”
Added Wayne: “I worked with Matthew at Mayr-Melnof Packaging and he has always impressed. I am delighted that he has joined the senior management team here at Glossop Cartons. His experience at Meyr-Melnof Packaging, where he managed key accounts across the UK, Spain and France, and previously at Saica Group will be a great asset to our team. I look forward to working with Matt to redefine our sales strategy to support profitable growth and the continued expansion of Glossop Cartons.”
