Timbrell brings 20 years’ experience in the FMCG sector to the role, including expertise in leadership, strategic planning and commercial management.

In his new post, Timbrell has a brief to grow IPP’s existing customer base and seek and secure new business opportunities, while leading the company’s team of account managers. 

Timbrell said: “The opportunities for growth are huge; sustainability should be on every responsible business’ agenda and IPP is well placed to support this. 

“I’m delighted to be part of this fast-paced, dynamic and forward-thinking business, which takes a positive approach to sustainability while delivering our customers’ products. 

“I’m looking forward to working for a business that is actively working to reduce industry timber usage and CO2 emissions by embracing the circular economy.” 

Shelley Pierre, IPP commercial director, added: “We have strengthened the team to support the business during this period of growth and are pleased to welcome a new head of commercial accounts with such extensive sector experience. 

“Paul is an excellent addition to our team and his knowledge and experience will be invaluable as we look to strengthen relationships and grow our UK operation.”

IPP, which is part of the Faber Group, provides reusable pallet and box pooling services across Europe for fast moving consumer goods and industrial supply chains, operating a pay-per-use model over ownership. 

The company has set a target to become net-zero by 2045 following the publication of Faber Group’s first sustainability report earlier this year.
