Packaging and print industry supplier Currie Group has parted ways with its long-time sales and marketing director Phillip Rennell, in what it describes as a milestone decision.

Newly appointed Currie Group CEO, Rob Mesaros announced the development in the company’s business model, with a new organisational plan.

The company says that after playing a key role in many landmark moments across twenty years of dedicated service, Rennell and Currie Group have agreed the time is right to part ways.

CUrrie Group supplies label presses HP Indigo and Omet, with Kama die-cutters, and a host of other equipment for the packaging and print industries

“Changes big and small continuously happen around us – in society, personally and in business. It is an important part of evolution”, Mesaros says. “However, in today’s always on and connected world, the velocity and impact is more pronounced than ever. Changing industry dynamics requires ongoing change necessary for the success and benefit of our customers.”

Effective immediately, Rennell’s role as sales and marketing director will no longer carry forward. Consequently, sales and customer management of the commercial segment will fold into the broader responsibility of Bernie Robinson, in his capacity as managing director of the Commercial Division.

Phillip Rennell said, “I have had an incredible journey for the last 20 plus years. I have shared many great memories with customers and suppliers alike. I could not have imagined the strong relationships forged along the way, and take many of them with me on the next phase of my career.”

Currie Group says it would like to thank Phillip for his "immeasurable contribution and service" and wish him the best for the future
