Helen Parry has been appointed to the position of managing director of MagnaColours, as the business continues to grow.
Existing managing director, Tom Abbey, will now take the role of executive chairman, a role which will allow him to focus on business strategy and direction.
Over the last 15 years Ms Parry has occupied various leadership roles, meaning she is well-placed to lead and support the existing management structure.
Ms Parry spent eight years at Vivimed (formerly James Robinson), where she helped in exponentially growing their range of speciality dyes, resulting in them being awarded the Queen’s Award for Innovation, something that MagnaColours has also had the honour of receiving.
More recently, she held the position of managing director at Sawgrass Europe, a subsidiary of Sawgrass Technologies, where she was instrumental in delivering exceptional growth results over her three years with the company.
Ms Parry said: “It’s rare to come across an opportunity with such a fit for your experience and personality. I’m very excited to join the Magna team as it continues to grow and I look forward to helping them to realise ambitions to increase the presence of their innovative inks, worldwide. This is an important time for the business and the textile printing industry as a whole. I’ll look forward to working alongside Tom and the team to ensure MagnaColours continue to lead the way.”
Tom Abbey continued: “Helen is joining MagnaColours as we continue to grow our reach and reputation for quality and innovation. Her experience in the industry and management means that she is perfectly positioned to help drive our growth plans. I will still be very much involved in the day to day running of the business and its processes in my new role, and we are delighted that Helen is joining the team.”
