One of Europe’s leading pallet poolers has invested in its UK senior management team as it prepares for growth. 

Coventry-based IPP, which is a pooler of sustainable wooden pallets, has appointed Paul Timbrell to the role of head of commercial accounts. 

Paul brings 20 years’ experience in the FMCG sector to the role, including expertise in leadership, strategic planning and commercial management. 

His role will involve growing IPP’s existing customers and seeking and securing new business opportunities while leading the company’s team of account managers. 

Paul said: “The opportunities for growth are huge; sustainability should be on every responsible business’ agenda and IPP is well placed to support this. 

“I’m delighted to be part of this fast-paced, dynamic and forward-thinking business, which takes a positive approach to sustainability while delivering our customers’ products. 

"I’m looking forward to working for a business that is actively working to reduce industry timber usage and CO2 emissions by embracing the circular economy.” 

Shelley Pierre, commercial director at IPP, said: “We have strengthened the team to support the business during this period of growth and are pleased to welcome a new head of commercial accounts with such extensive sector experience. 

“Paul is an excellent addition to our team and his knowledge and experience will be invaluable as we look to strengthen relationships and grow our UK operation.” 

IPP, which is part of the Faber Group, provides reusable pallet and box pooling services across Europe for fast moving consumer goods and industrial supply chains, operating a pay-per-use model over ownership.  

The company has set a target to become net-zero by 2045 following the publication of Faber Group’s first sustainability report earlier this year.
