A number of print companies and manufacturers around the UK are evolving and growing their teams to ensure that the industry continues to grow in strength, through the appointment of new team members.

Over at the Processing and Packaging Machinery Association (PPMA), global account director at Domino Printing Services, Tim Paul, has been appointed as its new chairman.

Paul is due to take on the two-year appointment from Mark Williamson, managing director of Stemmer Imaging, who has held the chairman position since 2016.

Domino Printing Services is an established global developer of coding, marking and printing technologies and is one of the original members of the PPMA – the UK’s lead trade association for the suppliers of processing and packaging machinery to the UK and overseas markets.

I’m delighted to be taking on the role of chairman for the PPMA. The organisation prides itself on the support, education and training it offers its members, as well as providing a voice for them on key topics that affects our industry

Commenting on his achievement, Paul says: “I’m delighted to be taking on the role of chairman for the PPMA. The organisation prides itself on the support, education and training it offers its members, as well as providing a voice for them on key topics that affects our industry.”

Dennis Publishing has also appointed a new chair, welcoming Jack Griffin to the board with immediate effect.

The media group chose Griffin due to his extensive experience in the US magazine and newspaper industries, having held a number of executive positions at key publishing companies.

“Dennis is a fascinating and well-run company that is bucking trends among much of the publishing industry by demonstrating financial growth. There is a huge opportunity to grow the business through launch and acquisition on both sides of the Atlantic and I look forward to working with the talented team in London and New York to build on its already strong market position,” says Griffin.
