CTS UK, the North Yorkshire-based business supply chain specialists, have strengthened their team with two senior appointments.
CTS UK is a leader in personalised uniforms, workwear, promotional products, personal protective equipment (PPE) and cleaning and hygiene products.
Thanos Klonis and Paul Mundy join Northallerton-based CTS UK at a pivotal stage in the company’s development in the wake of a record-breaking year.
Thanos is the company’s new group IT systems manager, while Paul joins as the group consolidation specialist.
Howard Gill, CTS UK’s Managing Director, said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Thanos and Paul to the company. These are two very significant appointments, which will help to build on the substantial progress we have made during the past two years.
“Thanos’s appointment allows CTS and our newly purchased company, Safeguard Supplies Ltd, to seamlessly interface internally and with our customers. Thanos will also streamline and improve the whole business’s IT systems to support our continued and sustainable growth.
“Meanwhile Paul’s tremendous enthusiasm and extensive knowledge of supply chain sales, especially of the cleaning and hygiene sector, will enable us to extend our reach into this very fertile area.
“Despite the challenges of the global pandemic, CTS is expanding quickly, with increased turnover and profits in 2021, new premises in Northallerton, new clients and brand-new state-of-the-art machinery. The future is bright and we look forward to both Thanos and Paul playing a very important part in our progress over the next few years.”
He added: “The journey of CTS is a long-term project, which demands the fullest commitment from all our staff. Thanos and Paul, with their experience and expertise, are perfect for their challenging and pivotal roles.”
Thanos Klonis, who has previously worked for the Billingham-based NYMAS Group and Barrett Steel, said: “This is a very exciting opportunity and challenge for me. The speed of growth of CTS UK means that an integrated IT system is crucially important, both internally and externally. It is my responsibility to take CTS’s IT systems to the next level to ensure that our service to our customers – and our relationship with our on-line partners – is consistently excellent.”
Paul Mundy, who joins CTS from the Leicester-based Merton Group, said: “This is an absolutely dream job for me. I live in Tadcaster, so working for a company in the Midlands has been a logistical challenge. Now I’m much closer to home – and I’m joining a company which is really going places.
“I am looking forward primarily to expanding and developing CTS UK’s revenue stream in the cleaning and hygiene sector. But there will be a good deal of crossover with other sales lines and I am delighted to be joining such a dynamic and enthusiastic team and playing my part in CTS’s success.”
CTS UK’s clients include Sports Direct, WS Transport, Bunzl, Eddie Stobart, Heck, Flannels, Wolseley and HC-One.
