The appointments follow a period of sustained international growth – including a joint venture in Portugal which has enabled Carrington to significantly increase production capacity, as well as teaming up with an on-the-ground distribution partner in the United Arab Emirates.
Having worked in the UK’s textile manufacturing sector for twenty-seven years, Neil joined Carrington Textiles in 2011. Passionate about building strong partnerships with customers across the globe, Neil has played a crucial role in expanding Carrington’s customer base in new geographies and ensuring product ranges are developed to meet the unique needs of these environments.
Neil comments: “The last few years have seen Carrington go from strength to strength in terms of our market share, progress in research and development and product innovation.
“I am thrilled to have been offered the role of managing director and thoroughly look forward to taking the lead on initiatives including continuing to reduce our environmental footprint, growing our product range, reaching new markets in the USA, South America and the Middle East and taking tangible steps to manage our operations post-Brexit.”
Taking up the helm of sales director is Paul Farrell who will be responsible for leading a team of twenty-two sales, marketing and product development professionals. Paul’s thirty years of experience began in the paper manufacturing industry, before transitioning across to the textiles space in 2014, where he was director of sales & marketing at Simon Jersey.
“In many respects, paper manufacturing is similar to that of textiles”, says Paul. “Both involve the processing of fibre into a finished product and, as such, it’s felt like a natural move into this sector.
“I have joined Carrington Textiles following a prolonged period of growth for the company and am looking forward to inspiring continued success across the board as its new Sales Director.”
