James Cropper, British master papermaker, has made two new appointments to the paper export sales team.
Russell Chan joins James Cropper as customer service executive. Based in Hong Kong and reporting to Maurice Tsang, he will provide administrative support to our team in the East Asia region.
With Russell being fluent in both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese, his translation skills will be invaluable in the sharing of mill and product news with our clients in Asia. His previous role was in the educational sector where he was responsible for editing text books in English.
James Cropper is also pleased to announce the appointment of Ahmed Badran to the position of account manager within the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland). Ahmed will be based from a home office close to Stuttgart and will report to Norbert Spiegel.
Ahmed joins James Cropper from West Rock, where he was responsible for developing packaging business for the company. He has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience within the paper industry working with paper merchants across DACH, Benelux, Scandinavia and Central Europe. The appointment will commence from 1 September.
Andy Smith, paper export sales director at James Cropper, said: “As we look towards some exciting new projects, we are constantly planning to grow our business with the help of experienced and talented people and partners.”
“As we continue to offer our exclusive Tailor Made paper service across global markets, we’re particularly pleased to welcome two new international recruits to the team. We’re confident that Russell and Ahmed will bring new vigour, skills and knowledge to the business.”
