Paul Macdonald, one of the leading figures in narrow web press sales in the UK and Ireland, has retired from his position as area sales manager for Mark Andy UK.
Macdonald joined the company in 2007 and worked initially as a sales representative for the North of England and Scotland before being appointed sales manager for the UK and Ireland in 2008.
Highly respected amongst his colleagues and customers, he has been one of the major driving forces for Mark Andy presses installations over the years, with, what Macdonald estimates, sales totaling more than GBP 50 million in value.
‘It’s been a lot of fun and often hard work, but I’ve loved my time in the industry and have met and made many good friends along the way,’ commented Macdonald. ‘I’ll miss the buzz of exhibitions and the camaraderie of it all, but it’s time to hang up my hat, lace up my golf shoes and work on improving my handicap.’
