Danwood Wales Appoints Managing Director

Cardiff-based print and document specialist, Danwood Wales, part of the wider Danwood Group, has appointed its first Managing Director to lead the rapidly growing company through to its next stage of development.
Richard Corkhill will be taking on the role of Managing Director.  Having joined the Danwood Group in 2003 as a Regional Sales Manager for its commercial team, he has demonstrated excellent leadership and expertise in his field.  As a result, he has quickly progressed through the company which has resulted in numerous promotions including Divisional Director of Danwood Wales.
As part of his new role, Mr Corkhill will be working closely with Wales’ commercial, public sector and corporate teams in order to identify and generate new business opportunities, increase business with existing customers as well as maximise the company’s profits.  All of which, are part of the company’s long term strategic growth and sales plans to treble the size of Danwood Wales by 2014.
Mr Corkhill commented: “Since we acquired Algebra and Photostatic we have ensured that both of the previous organisations have been fully integrated and are in line with Danwood’s structure and ethos.
“It’s an exciting time at Danwood Wales and I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to escalate the company to its next stage of development – continuing to build an enviable reputation for high quality printing services, which are delivered through leading edge innovation and backed by excellent customer service.
“Furthermore, I have been working with Danwood for eight and a half years, it’s a great company to work for and I’m pleased to see my commitment to helping the company develop has been recognised.  I am thoroughly looking forward to the new challenges this position will pose.”
Steve Hibbert, Group Sales Director of the Danwood Group, remarked: “Ever since Richard joined the company, he has made a great impression and has proven himself to be a highly skilled sales and business individual, which has been rewarded by high level promotions.
“Richard is a natural leader, has an excellent understanding of Danwood Wales’ business model and has been instrumental to the company’s achievements in Wales so far.  I have no doubt that he will excel in his new role, steering Danwood Wales to achieve its aggressive growth target.”
