Mark Lyndon Paper Enterprises has welcomed Tony Beech to its team as commercial manager.
He joins from DS Smith and will work alongside Lyn Wareing and Chris Petcher in the buying team.
Tony Beech said: “I am particularly excited about my new challenge. Mark Lyndon has a fantastic team of people and a work ethic that is second to none. They have provided me with a warm welcome, which always helps.”
Mark Lyndon Paper Enterprises managing director Colin Clarke added: “We are delighted to welcome Tony to Mark Lyndon. His reputation within the industry made the acquisition a very easy decision for us.
“With Lee & Man’s (the owner of Mark Lyndon) recent expansion into Vietnam, it was the right time to increase our team as we look to continue our growth in the UK market. The investment reaffirms our Chinese colleague’s long-term commitment to the UK market and the additional buyer on the ground will enable us to continue to focus on quality.”
