Hunter appoints new brand director

Published:  15 September, 2009

LONDON: Steve Dunkley has been appointed brand director at Hunter Plastics. Mr Dunkley is well known in the merchanting sector with over 24 years’ service at Hunter.

“When I joined Hunter as an area sales manager, the brand was going through a positive change towards a more customer focused business model," Mr Dunkley says. "And although that core ethos hasn’t changed, in the past two decades, the brands and company really haven’t stood still!”

“The whole team at Hunter has consistently worked hard to shape both the Hunter and Multikwik brands’ futures and give them national prominence. I am proud to take over the stewardship of these respected brands”

“I am fortunate,” Mr Dunkley continues, “that the team at Hunter Plastics is never complacent, and as brand director I have the opportunity to lead the strategy of product innovation, customer service and logistics. The company’s rich heritage in award-winning customer service and innovation will not change. The old adage of only being as good as your last order really holds true in this uncertain financial climate.”

"My key objective is to continue to build on both the Hunter and Multikwik brand reputations and the business model that we are well-known for – building long-standing and profitable partnerships with our customers, suppliers and staff," he says.

He takes up his new role with effect from 1 January 2010.
