A Northamptonshire-based manufacturer and retailer of award-winning paper honeycomb pallets, pallet boxes, layer pads, and warehouse storage solutions have named their new CEO.
PALLITE®, based in Wellingborough, has welcomed Iain Hulmes to lead their business. The change sees Patrick Mulhall move to Commercial Director where he will strengthen the leadership and development of PALLITE®’s sales team, and together both will play key roles in continuing the company’s aggressive growth plans.
Iain is a degree-qualified mechanical engineer with an MBA from Manchester Business School who spent his formative years manufacturing plastics with ICI on Teesside. Subsequently, he’s held senior roles in a variety of industrial sectors including FMCG, recycling & minerals processing. More recently Iain was UK MD responsible for a £250M turnover minerals trading division of an industrial services PLC. Throughout his career, he has been heavily involved in the movement of raw materials and finished goods, and during the last three years he’s concentrated on helping SMEs to achieve rapid growth.
Iain adds, ‘‘I’m really pleased to be joining PALLITE® at such an exciting time. Last year sales grew by nearly 60%, and it’s been clear to me from day one that there is real momentum in the business. We have a great message on the environment, but we also have a range of products that deliver real bottom line benefits to customers.”
