|Baker Labels welcomes Phil Smith to their management team
Phil joins Mandy and Steve Baker, Paul Sykes (Production Manager) and Jamie Doogan (Commercial Manager) as General Manager of BakPac. This is the first time in 10 years that Bakers has introduced a new member of the team at senior management level and is a reflection of the continuous, positive growth of the UK trade label printer. With almost 30 years of label production behind him, Phil Smith has a lot of knowledge and experience to bring to Bakers.
Career History - Phil joined Sussex Labels in 1990 where he started in rewind / packing and moved up to production planning and estimating. In 1999 he joined Tinsley Robor labels taking on a number of management rolls from accounts, technical, commercial and operations manager before being appointed operations director of AGI Labels. As the company was once again taken over, this time by AJS Labels he was appointed Commercial Director followed by Managing Director. When MPS absorbed AJS Labels Phil was appointed General Manager until he joined Baker Labels in June 2019.
Quote from Steve Baker, Managing Director Baker Labels - “We have been growing rapidly over the last few years and the plan is to keep building, investing and growing, potentially into new areas of the print and packaging industry. We have some big plans ahead that created the need for another manager. I’ve known Phil for many years and always knew he’d be a good fit at Bakers. I’m looking forward to working with him, as are the rest of the team.”
Quote from Phil Smith, General Manager BakPac - “I am delighted to become part of the Bakers team who are highly skilled and passionate about the customer base. Their continued investment, growth and technical development is second to none. Baker Labels has a great reputation in the label industry and this opportunity to spread that reputation into new areas is a very exciting prospect.”
