UK independent tissue converter Accrol Group Holdings has appointed Gareth Jenkins as chief executive.

He will take over the role from Steve Crossley with effect from 11 September 2017.

Jenkins previously worked for DS Smith, one of Europe’s leading packaging companies that manufactures corrugated products for the retail, FMCG and industrial markets.

He spent the last four years as managing director of the UK & Ireland packaging division.

Crossley is leaving the company and stepping down from the board with immediate effect to pursue other interests.

Peter Cheung, chairman of Accrol, said the company “continues to trade in line with market expectations in terms of revenue, with profitability being broadly in line with market expectations”.
