Sales Appointment Will Help To Boost RPC Offering
Leading food packaging manufacturer RPC Bebo UK has appointed Ian McManus as Business Development Manager.

In his new role, Ian will be responsible for sales of RPC Bebo’s extensive range of thermoformed pots, tubs and trays into both the retail and foodservice sectors.

He will also work alongside RPC’s market-leading vending cup operation, RPC Tedeco-Gizeh, to offer a selection of complementary foodservice products for the vending industry.

Ian has over 18 years’ experience in flexible packaging, working across a variety of end markets including bakery, meat, fresh produce and confectionery, and dealing with many blue-chip companies and retailers. He joins RPC from Tyler Packaging where he was the Sales Manager for technical films.

“I am delighted to welcome Ian to RPC Bebo UK,” comments general manager David Lowe.

“His experience across so many sectors will be invaluable as we seek to further grow our business, while forging closer links between our vending and packaging operations will enable us to offer a comprehensive one-stop service to our customers.”

FDF Looks For New Director General As Melanie Leech Steps Down
FDF has announced that its Director General, Melanie Leech, will be leaving in the New Year after more than nine years to head up the British Property Federation.

Melanie, who has held the post of Director General since August 2005, said: "I have been privileged to lead FDF for the last nine years and am incredibly proud of what we have achieved in that time. With the support of five great Presidents and many individuals from member companies, plus a dedicated, expert and hard-working executive team we have made a real difference for food and drink manufacturing and driven the agenda through initiatives such as our Five-fold Environmental Ambition, our 2020 Growth Vision and our Ingredients for Success. The time is now right for me to move on to a new challenge and I am excited about the opportunity to represent another major economic powerhouse sector for the UK economy."

Richard Evans, FDF President, said: "Melanie has made a significant contribution to furthering the industry’s interests during her time at FDF. She has been responsible for a number of key campaigns and worked tirelessly to make sure members are well represented in the key debates affecting our sector. She is highly regarded both by members and our stakeholders and has been a huge support to me and my predecessors in the role of President. We wish her well for her new role."

FDF has now commenced the search for a new Director General.

New MDs For New Business Units At Premier Foods
Premier Foods has announced a reorganisation of its commercial structure creating three new Strategic Business Units (SBU's) to strengthen focus on its major growth opportunities and develop more agile ways of working following the successful conclusion of a new capital structure earlier this year.

The new SBU's will be named Grocery, Sweet Treats and International and will enable a tighter focus on capturing specific category opportunities in the UK market while ensuring a more strategic approach to developing the company's brands internationally. Each SBU will have full accountability for its respective portfolio and be responsible for directing innovation, marketing, sales, manufacturing and logistics resources in support of agreed growth priorities.

To lead the new structure, two new appointments have been made to the Executive leadership team.

Alex Whitehouse is appointed Managing Director, Grocery, bringing significant marketing, innovation and strategic experience to the Company following an 18 year career with Reckitt Benckiser.

Graham Hunter is appointed Managing Director, Sweet Treats, and brings valuable expertise in the sweet treats category having held senior general management, marketing and commercial roles at Tangerine Confectionery, Fox's Biscuits, Jacobs Bakery and Mars.

In addition, Peter Ellis is appointed General Manager, International, expanding his existing responsibilities for the Company's international sales and building on his substantial international experience gained over 16 years at Campbell Soup Company.

As a result of these changes, the previous position of Commercial Director, Premier Foods, currently held by Ian Deste, will no longer exist. During a transition period, Ian will focus on helping execute the remainder of the Company's 2014 commercial plans and particularly the important Christmas trading period, continuing to strengthen its customer relationships and supporting the move to the new structure.

Commenting on the new commercial organisation, Gavin Darby, CEO Premier Foods said: “Given the major structural changes taking place in the UK grocery market, it is important we stay ahead of the game and re-focus our organisation on the most promising growth opportunities and delivering what our customers and consumers want. By implementing a focussed and more accountable business unit structure, I believe we will improve our agility and rate of innovation.”

“I'm delighted that we've been able to attract two outstanding individuals in Alex Whitehouse and Graham Hunter to Premier Foods. They are experienced leaders with clear ideas on how we can grow the business. Together with Peter Ellis, I believe we have the right structure, leadership, experience and energy to build a stronger, more agile and less complex business and deliver shareholder value for the future.”

“I've worked closely with Ian Deste for some time and am very grateful to him for his important contribution in helping shape our category-focussed strategy and building stronger relationships with our retail customers. I'm pleased that he will be further supporting us in the transition to the new structure. "
