Press release from the issuing company
Jon Roberts has been appointed Managing Director of Wyndeham Roche, Wyndeham Group's web offset printing subsidiary based in Cornwall. He joins the business on 12 March.
Roberts, 44, had been General Manager of Roche until 2009, then part of St Ives plc. He left to become European Operations Director at Supplair, the airline supply chain management business of Gate Group plc. Wyndeham Group bought Roche, which employs 258, as part of the acquisition of St Ives plc's Web Division that completed in April 2011.
Paul Utting, chief executive officer of Wyndeham Group, said: “I'm delighted Jon has decided to join us. He’s a high calibre individual with proven operational and manufacturing management skills that will, undoubtedly, enhance Roche's position as one of the leading web offset printing facilities in the UK."
Roberts commented: "Having worked in this sector for 20 years and been involved with Roche for six of those, I understand the business very well. I've followed Wyndeham's rapid progress and was particularly attracted by its exciting market strategy and sensible approach to the challenges that lie ahead. I'm looking forward to supporting the Roche team to ensure we maximise the huge potential that is embedded in this well-invested factory."
Roberts will succeed Brian Harris, who is relocating to the north England to be with his family.
