Robert Horne managing director Paul French is leaving to become CEO of Metamark, a position he takes up in October. He will assume total responsibility for the company and is tasked with driving its strategic goals in pursuit of further sales and volume growth, geographical expansion and new product development and introductions.
Commenting on the appointment, Metamark chairman, Mark Bateson said: “Paul joins us at an interesting time. He has a great team and a range of superb products headed by a powerful brand to work with. We’re investing in the people, infrastructure and developments needed to execute and deliver our plan. I know he will make a success of this opportunity and I’m looking forward to working with him as are the other members of the senior team and everyone here at Metamark.”
Metamark has recently made new appointments to its field sales force, relocated its UK warehousing and supply headquarters to larger premises, and is investing in new plant and premises for the planned expansion of its manufacturing, conversion and international distribution facilities.
French is a familiar name in the sign and display industry. He joined Spandex as its UK general manager from Colourgen and then gained valuable industry experience from the other side of the table when he was appointed by sign manufacturer ASG as its commercial director, after which he joined Robert Horne.
