Avery appoints new managing director for Europe west region

Formerly the general manager of the Avery France and Benelux business, Nicolas Jean-Jean has been promoted to managing director for Avery Europe, west region. He joined the business in 2007 and served in a number of finance roles before being appointed general manager for Avery France in 2013.

Mark Cooper, Avery Europe’s vice president and managing director, said:

Our UK, French and Benelux businesses have a leading Avery brand presence in their markets. Since the CCL acquisition in 2013 we have focused on improving the performance of these units. All three markets are served by our UK plant in Raunds making the creation of a ‘west’ region under a single leader an obvious choice. Nico brings a wealth of experience with him, having successfully developed the French and Benelux businesses, launching a number of important initiatives leading to growth in top line sales and improved overall profitability.”
