Postal packaging specialist Blake has promoted Graham Carlin to General
Manager with responsibility for overseeing the day-to-day running of the business, strengthening internal processes and fostering Blake’s ‘can-do’ culture.
Graham joined Blake last year from paper merchants Robert Horne, where he was operations director responsible for more than 500 employees. His first challenge at Blake was to transform the distribution operation and make the company’s warehouse a centre of excellence. This he succeeded in doing, increasing accuracy pick rates to 100%.
Michael Barter, managing director of Blake, said: “Graham has an ability to develop and train staff with patient perseverance and an eye for seeing the best in everyone. It is this skill that justified our decision to make Graham general manager after seeing his performance in transforming our operations.”
