To get 2018 underway, the Taylor Bloxham Group has received some welcome news: our CEO Robert Lockwood has been named on a list of the print industry’s most influential people.
The PrintWeek Power 100 is an annual rundown of the print industry’s top 100 influential individuals. The CEO of the Taylor Bloxham Group is ranked at number 57 and is one of 21 new entries found on the list. The accolade comes after a busy year of diversification and expansion for the company. This is the first year that Robert has been placed on the list and it comes less than two years after starting the role.
A year of repair and growth
It has been a busy year at the Taylor Bloxham Group and it’s no surprise that the positive efforts have resulted in a place on the prestigious list for Robert.
Following a factory fire in May 2017, the newly appointed CEO had to formulate a plan to repair, invest and grow the company. A programme of investment to close 2017 has expanded operations to an additional site and has also set up a new division dedicated solely to direct mail. Investment has enabled our Group to more than double their capacity following the fire.
Leading the drive for growth
Robert was placed on the list by PrintWeek for ‘being pivotal in turning around the £27m business and continuing its aggressive drive for diversification’. Following a promotion to CEO from his former position as financial director, Robert has led the Taylor Bloxham Group to diversify into direct mail, point-of-sale and fulfilment in his first calendar year in the position.
“It’s an honour to be found on a list alongside some of the most powerful people in the print industry,” explains Robert. “2017 has been a challenging year but one that we have come out the other end of looking stronger than ever. We now have everything in place to make 2018, our 80th anniversary year, the best year yet.”
The Taylor Bloxham Group Ltd includes four brands that work together to manage the whole chain of marketing communications. Combined, Taylor Bloxham, FastAnt, Mailbox and Instore offer expertise in print, direct mail, fulfilment design and retail point of purchase.
