Graham Carlin, Blake's new general manager

Graham joined the operations team last year from leading industry paper merchants Robert Horne, where he had risen from the shop floor to operations director responsible for over 500 employees. His first challenge at Blake was to transform the distribution operation and ensure the warehouse became a centre of excellence. He successfully did this improving accuracy pick rates to 100%.

Michael Barter, managing director said, “Graham has an ability to develop and train staff with patient perseverance and an eye for seeing the best in everyone. It is this skill that justified our decision to make Graham general manager after seeing his performance in transforming our operations.”

His promotion to general manager means he will be overseeing the day-to-day running of the business and strengthening internal processes and procedures whilst developing the pioneering, can-do ‘Blake’ culture.

Graham said, “I am excited to be involved with Blake at this time. I want to help the company be better at the things they are already good at and continue to strengthen and build the reputation they have in the industry as the leading postal, packaging provider in the country.”
