Richardson (pictured left) is currently Group Managing Director of VPK Packaging in the UK & Ireland and brings significant senior leadership experience in the corrugated industry. He will replace Alex Kelly, who is retiring to his native Scotland following 10 years in the role of Chief Executive. Kelly continues as Chief Executive until September, and will support Richardson through to the end of 2022 to ensure a smooth transition for the business.
Kelly commented, “It has been a privilege to lead the Logson business. The support of our employees, key customers and suppliers has been instrumental in the development of the business over the past 10 years, firmly establishing Logson as the UK’s leading independent corrugated supplier. I strongly believe David’s leadership approach and values will be an excellent fit with the entrepreneurial Logson culture. He will be supported by an experienced and high performing existing management team and I look forward to observing, albeit from a distance, the continued evolution and growth of the Logson Group.”
