Evolve Pack strengthens team with appointment of new Commercial Manager

Evolve Pack, one of the UK’s leading contract packing companies, has strengthened its managerial team with the appointment of Joanne Gill as Commercial Manager.

Joanne brings over 25 years of commercial knowledge to the role, having previously held positions with M&S Logistics, a global provider of bulk liquid transport, and Brenntag, a global chemical distributor. Joanne’s ability to work with businesses of all sizes, from global giants to specialist regional producers, will prove invaluable in helping to establish Evolve Pack as a leader in its field.

“Traditionally Evolve Pack has been regarded as a biscuit and confectionary packer. However, the company works with a far wider array of sectors and offers an extensive range of services. As Commercial Manager, it will be my job to ensure both existing and potential customers are aware of this, as well as identifying other markets where we can really help businesses manage their packing needs more effectively and efficiently,” explains Joanne.

“The company has also just moved into new, larger premises and now has the capacity to take on new, and more varied, work. One of my responsibilities will be to find this business, helping to grow Evolve Pack from the already successful business it is, into the market leader we know it can be – and I am very much looking forward to the challenge!” adds Joanne.

Steve Frixou, Managing Director of Evolve Pack, welcomes Joanne to the team: “This is an extremely important time for Evolve Pack. Over the past twenty years we have developed the business from a recruitment agency into what it is today – one of the country’s leading contract packing companies – and we are now well placed to take the business even further. This is where Joanne comes in. Her ability to spot opportunities and maximise them is second to none, and we’re confident that this, combined with her sound commercial awareness, will help us achieve that next level.

“Joanne will be supported by a strong operations team lead by Operations Director, Johnny Izamis, who joined us earlier this year. The aim of these two new appointments is to further enhance – both operationally and commercially – our existing team, which already has extensive knowledge and experience of the Evolve Pack brand, creating a bright and positive future for the business and its employees,” adds Steve.

Evolve Pack offers a comprehensive range of contract packing solutions from flow wrapping and multi-bagging to cartoning, shrink wrapping and manual rework. It also offers an innovative Managed Internal Packing Service (MIPS), where a skilled, flexible work force is supplied to a customer’s facility, providing an efficient yet cost-effective alternative to using a recruitment agency.
