Noel Warner (L), CEO of Inc Direct with new managing director, Paul Cooke

Paul Cooke has joined from Williams Lea as managing director, allowing CEO Noel Warner to focus on acquisitions.

Mr Cooke was previously managing director EMEA for Williams Lea and will now report directly to Mr Warner. He replaces Alan Hynes who becomes group financial director.

Mr Warner will now work on acquisitions alongside Mr Hynes and concentrate more on developing new markets and client propositions.

'This was always going to be a difficult role to fill as it's been my life for over 13 years', confided Mr Warner. 'When I first met Paul, we were both clearly on the same wavelength and regardless of the difference in size between Williams Lea and Inc Direct, the principles of running and building a successful business remain exactly the same. After several meetings and outlining my plans and objectives for Inc Direct it was evident from the outset that Paul was absolutely the right fit for our business.'

'We're at an exciting albeit challenging stage of growth and up until now it has been fairly organic. Having Paul on the board is a real asset to Inc Direct and will now allow each of us to play to our strengths and concentrate on building a bigger and even better business through strategic acquisition, accessing new markets and growing our existing clients by adding more value.'

'I'm absolutely delighted to be joining Inc Direct,' commented Mr Cooke. 'Being asked to lead Inc Direct to the next level is very exciting.'

The firm recently installed its first HP Indigo press.
