Elanders UK has announced the appointment of Jill Mccartney as client services manager.

Jill’s arrival follows the recent appointments of business development managers, Kelly Heath and Chris Homa, as well as a plethora of new starters in recent months across the company’s UK sites, including its North Tyneside headquarters, dedicated swing-tag and fulfilment site in Nottingham and its packaging facility in Bellshill, Scotland.

Jill, from Cramlington, joins the company with 20 years of experience within the packaging industry.

Elanders UK is part of Elanders Group, a global partner for integrated supply chain solutions with over 90 operations across four continents. It provides flexible and agile solutions for complex supply chains, providing customers with value-added services such as print and packaging resources which are integrated into its core business model.

Jill, said: “This is an exciting time to join Elanders, the company has a vision and plan for growth which is inspiring.

“I have also come full circle as, 20 years ago, I was mentored, at my previous employer, by Gavin Wray, who went on to join Elanders. Ironically, I am now taking over Gavin’s role at Elanders, as he takes on a UK-wide position within the company. Incredibly, all these years later, Gavin is once again training me.

“The progression routes at Elanders really stood out to me. My background is very much packaging, so I am looking forward to developing my knowledge within the supply chain, working with clients predominantly in lifestyle and fashion and also on the print side to produce educational literature.

“I am heading up a team of six account executives within the customer services department and I am looking forward to working in partnership with our loyal clients.”

Managing director, Kevin Rogers, said: “A warm welcome to Jill who joins us with that perfect blend of enthusiasm and experience. This is going to be a huge year for Elanders as we move forward with our very ambitious plans for growth. Investment in technology and processes will help us to achieve our goals, but the number one priority is bringing onboard top-quality operators, such as Jill.”
