He was previously divisional finance director at FTSE 250 bus company National Express Group PLC (LON:NEX) after spending 15 years at Cadbury in several senior roles.


“The building blocks for growth are now firmly in place at Accrol and the acquisition of Leicester Tissue Company in November, signalled our intentions for the group,” said the toilet paper firm’s chief executive Gareth Jenkins in a statement.


“Richard will be key to the delivery of our growth plans and, having worked with him at DS Smith, I know first-hand the valuable skill set he will bring to the group. He will help accelerate our significant expansion plans, building on the strong foundations put in place over the last three years, and the delivery of significant returns to our shareholders.”
