WETHERBY, North Yorkshire, England — New Guard Coatings announced the appointment of Steve Law as Group Business Development Manager. The appointment comes at a time of growth for New Guard Coatings, with an increase of clients and a rise in sales. While primarily based from the Wetherby, North Yorkshire, England, head office, Law will oversee work and ensure cohesion between all of New Guard’s offices both in the UK and abroad. The appointment is with immediate effect.

With 39 years of experience in the print and paper industry, Law felt the time for a new challenge was right. “I knew Ben and New Guard very well after cold calling them almost 10 years ago and soon afterwards becoming client and supplier,” said Law. “Having seen the group grow incredibly, now having branches throughout the UK, Ireland, Europe and the USA, I didn’t have to struggle to appreciate that the role I was being offered was incredibly exciting.”

With a growth in clients over the last year, New Guard continues to improve its product range as well as the service that it provides to customers.

Commenting on the new appointment, Ben Cooper, Managing Director of New Guard Coatings, said, “We continue to have very ambitious growth plans for the group, and there is nobody better to fill our business development as part of the group expansion jigsaw than Steve.”
