Welcome to our new website and to the page that gives you an insight into some of the people you will be speaking to and communicating with. As for myself, I have recently taken over from Paul Browne who has eased gently into retirement. My aim is to ensure the continued success of Polyplus Packaging over the coming years, building on the solid foundations laid down by Paul.

Having served Seevent now for 16 years with 25 years’ time served in the Polythene Industry, it is a privilege to head up their newly acquired plant near Reading in Berkshire. I lived not far from here 25 years ago so, having moved back to this area, with all my in-laws being within a stone’s throw of my retirement home, is that good news or bad news? I’ll leave you to decide. I look forward to the challenge of building on Polyplus` enviable success and continuing to contribute to the future growth plans of Seevent Plastics Ltd.

I have a very lengthy experience in the UK and European Packaging Industry, having previously worked for a large manufacturing company for over 20 years, involved in the infancy and development of IBC’s. However, even in the modern environment of high- tech I still believe in Personal Contact having a direct bearing in, initially gaining and then retaining Business. Outside of work I have a keen interest in Football, Golf and Table Tennis as a player, and spending time with my grown up children and grandchildren.

Having been with Polyplus Packaging for 13 years it was a bit daunting to find we were being bought by a new company. That said the changes that have been made have been very positive and exciting. I am very pleased that I stayed and am looking forward to the future working closely with our new managing director and sales team, who will work with me, looking after our current customer base and generating new ones. In my spare time, I like to take walks or cycle rides along the river with my husband. And spending time with my little 3-year-old granddaughter.

I have been in the industry coming up 10 years now and there is never a dull moment in the world of polythene, from aggregate bags to VCI no 2 days are ever the same. The Seevent Group is fantastic to work for and I could easily see myself here for the foreseeable future. I am based in Oxford and cover all inside the M25 up to Newcastle east of the M1, it’s a busy but rewarding role, which is helped by having a great team that support each other. In my spare time I enjoy the gym, walking my dogs, cycling, socialising with friends and racing around on my motorbikes!

I am very happy to be representing the Seevent Plastics group as it’s a first-rate company. We have a great team spirit and a real desire to be professional in what we do. It also helps that we have an excellent product to sell. I started my career in the military where I served in Germany and Northern Ireland. An engineering degree followed at Leeds University. From there, I worked in the gold mines of South Africa followed by the fish industry in Scotland. I have worked in plastics as a purchasing manager for twenty years and have now completed ten years in sales. In my spare time I love walking my two Labradors, playing tennis, golf and getting out on my bike.
