The UK’s leading paper, packaging and visual communications business, Antalis has bolstered its office division with three new senior appointments.
Richard Adams joins as retail development account director and Simon Wyers joins as retail account director, while Sham Ahmed, already a longstanding Antalis employee, has been promoted to the newly created role of digital consumer sales manager. Richard brings a wealth of experience, having spent the past decade in senior sales roles at Colart, Nuco and, most recently, Shurtape Techologies.
For paper industry veteran Simon, meanwhile, it is a welcome return. Having worked at Antalis as a business development manager some 15 years ago, Simon went on to spend nine years at PaperlinX and most recently helped to develop Pukka Pads’ retail channel. Now active in his new role, he will focus on building relationships with retail customers nationally and growing market share.
In addition, Sham has worked at Antalis for almost 20 years, most recently as national digital sales manager. In his newly-created role he will assume additional responsibility for leveraging the growing B2C market, working closely with the product marketing team to drive forward the category in terms of product innovation, promotional activity and other channel specific initiatives.
