North East print, packaging and supply chain business Elanders is continuing its ambitious period of growth with the appointment of a new Business Development Director who will lead delivery of the company’s new direction and communication of new services.
Bryan Crennell will be based in Elanders UK headquarters in North Tyneside with responsibility for managing external facing teams across the company’s UK sites.
Originally from the North East, Bryan returns to the region following a number of years heading up the global sales and marketing teams of leading manufacturing and technology companies based in the North West and South East region. Taking over from former sales and marketing director Chris Hewitt who has stepped up to managing director at Elanders UK, Bryan’s role involves managing key departments including sales, new business, commercial, clients services and marketing.
The company, which recently announced a record £23million turnover and a further £2million investment in its Scottish site, has expansion plans to develop its service offering spanning packaging, multi-channel marketing, digital print services, e-commerce solutions and supply chain fulfilment.
Bryan said of his appointment: “Joining any company during such a growth period is an attractive proposition for anyone in sales, marketing and business development. Elanders isn’t standing still: the company is constantly improving to ensure it remains at the forefront of its customers’ requirements which relies on a progressive strategy and I’m looking forward to developing this with my colleagues and our customers.”
Commenting on Bryan’s appointment, Chris Hewitt, Managing Director of Elanders UK, said: “Elanders has invested carefully in equipment, machinery and people to be able to align our service offering to the changing needs of our customers. Bryan is our latest investment bringing ambition, innovation and fresh new thinking to the company which will enable us to expand into new areas.”
