The organisation, which has just moved into its new premises in Hooper Street, East London, has also appointed Precision Printing Company managing director Gary Peeling and Northend Creative Print Solutions managing director Nigel Stubley as board directors.

BPIF chief executive Kathy Woodward said: "When I took over as chief executive in June two key priorities for me personally were to move out of Farringdon Point, our office in London, which were a real drain on our finances and to recruit to the board some high profile directors who can challenge our thinking and help us to shape our strategy going forward.

"It is great that we have been able to attract such high calibre individuals and we look forward to their input."

AGI World and Shorewood Packaging merged earlier this year.
