Following record performance and a 6 month recruitment search, specialist security and short run label printer Mercian Labels has appointed Mr Hugo Gell as its new Sales Director.

Building on record performance in 2004, the company started the search for a long term senior management team member to consolidate recent growth and create more jobs at the company’s base in Cannock, Staffordshire (UK) in conjunction with Meg Pringle of MPD Coaching.

Hugo has been involved in the hospitality sector of the ceramics industry for the past 10 years, and has extensive experience in manufacturing, distribution, project management and sales and marketing. He has fronted subsidiary companies in the USA, Australia and Asia, and most recently has been involved in the sales and design-led products into the garden and leisure industry.

“I am delighted to welcome Hugo to the business as an exceptional Director with senior sales experience. With over 130 applicants, it was a tough selection process! Hugo will take an equity stake in the business in due course and his skill set will compliment our increasingly specialised business.” said the Managing Director Dr Adrian Steele
Established in 1969, Mercian Labels specialise in fast printing of small runs of custom printed self adhesive labels for UK businesses and have a growing market in high security seals for organisations worldwide.

“Our new product range of security labels are selling exceptionally well internationally, and we just can not keep up with demand at times. With Hugo on board the senior team we are very well placed to develop the business further, creating more jobs and securing the future of the business.” said Adrian
