Pall-Ex Group appoints Paul Robins as UK Finance Director - HM1_0625

Pall-Ex Group has strengthened its board with the appointment of a new UK finance director.

Paul Robins joins from UK Mail, part of the Deutsche Post DHL Group, bringing more than 20 years’ experience in the parcel sector to the role.

Robins’ previous role was as head of business accounting at UK Mail where he doubled business turnover from £250m to £500m and was awarded Employee of the Year.

The new appointment follows former finance director Peter Paxton’s move to the role of group chief financial officer.

Kevin Buchanan, group chief executive, said: “Paul is a real asset to the Pall-Ex and Fortec teams and his appointment is part of the growth strategy for our new era.

“His experience of acquisitions, aligning systems and reporting is of huge value at this on-going time of change and we are pleased to be starting 2021 with a full board of directors and a fresh perspective.

“Having the right team in place is essential to our success and with Paul’s sector knowledge and experience, we are better equipped to drive forward with our ambitious growth plans in the UK, mainland Europe and beyond.”

Robins added: “My core background is in distribution, across the pallet and parcel sectors, so I am confident my skills will be a valuable addition to both Pall-Ex and Fortec.

“The logistics sector is a rapidly changing environment, full of dynamic personalities and can-do attitudes, which is why the industry has always been the right fit for me.

“I enjoy knowing that I am part of a team providing an excellent service for customers and recipients.

“There are many challenges ahead, such as dealing with the many fluid priorities that come with a fast-paced business, but the senior team are inspirational and demonstrate the journey that Pall-Ex is on.

“I want to be part of that journey and belong to a business that has true potential and determination.”
