CPS Group, a major supplier of labels to the furnishings sector, has appointed one of the best-known names in the bed industry, Paul Little, as its new group MD.
Paul will be responsible for the strategic development and leadership of the group, with a view to taking its growth within the UK and wider European markets to the next level.
Says Paul, who has spent the past 14 years as executive sales and marketing director at Relyon and Steinhoff UK Beds: "I am really excited to join a progressive, forward-thinking and dynamic company at a very exciting time. I look forward to working with the team and helping to lead them into a new chapter of the group’s growth."
CPS was established 30 years ago by group owner Simon Green and is now one of the UK’s leading specialist print companies. The Caerphilly-based company is also major supplier of labels to the mattress and carpet industries.
Commenting on Paul’s appointment, which takes effect today, Simon comments: "Paul brings a wealth of sales management, strategic planning and brand marketing experience, that the CPS Group will find invaluable."
During his time at Relyon, Paul was responsible for relaunching the Dunlopillo brand in the UK. He notes: “That, alongside developing an outstanding sales and marketing team with whom I worked to significantly grow the business, was my proudest achievement.”
Simon will continue his involvement with the group, which is currently recruiting additional staff to handle a "booming" order book, focusing on new business development.
