The company, which recently recorded a record UK turnover of £23m, employs a total of 194 people across its headquarters at New York Business Park and other sites in Birmingham and Scotland.

Chris, previously Elanders’ sales and marketing director, said: “In my new role I’ll be working with our team to ensure Elanders continues to deliver world-class customer service.

“We know our business’ strengths and will continue to innovate and grow in these areas, while also looking to expand our offering into complementary sectors such as multi-channel marketing and packaging.”

“Our mission is to encourage innovation and creativity while continuously improving processes and people, to add value for our clients. The next few years will be key to achieving this goal.”

Chris, who has nearly 30 years experience in leadership, takes over from Kevin Rogers who has been appointed Elanders’ head of print & packaging solutions Asia and member of group management.

Elanders moved into its 84,000 square foot North Tyneside headquarters in 1999 with ambitions to almost treble its turnover from £7m.

Since this time, the company has invested in people and machinery, including a recent investment of over £1m into its digital printing facilities.
