Pall-Ex – Mark Steel MD of European operations

Mark Steel is to be the Managing Director of Pall-Ex’s European operations.

Steel joined Pall-Ex as Sales and Marketing Director in 2016. He was in the Royal Air Force prior to that role, and has since played a major role in winning new corporate contracts for Pall-Ex’s UK operations.

At present Pall-Ex offers a Europe-wide service that is delivered by national partners in eight main locations including France, Italy, Spain and Romania.

In late 2019 the firm became the first pallet network to be owned by senior management and members, and Steel is the latest of a number of new appointments.

Mark Steel comments: “This is an exciting time of growth for Pall-Ex and I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead as we grow our presence in Europe.

“We have successfully established Pall-Ex in a number of European countries, working closely with domestic partners in each territory to ensure our brand values are upheld internationally.

“We are continually making huge investments in technology to futureproof the Pall-Ex network for our members, not just nationally but internationally as well, and this has prepared us for developing new opportunities in Europe.”

Kevin Buchanan, Group CEO at Pall-Ex Group, comments: “Mark has been instrumental in building our corporate client accounts, bringing in a number of high-profile companies and building new and existing relationships into long-term partnerships.

“He is the ideal candidate to lead the team forward within Europe and build the Pall-Ex brand internationally, due to his knowledge of the industry and extensive experience.

“We are already well-established in key areas in mainland Europe and these strong foundations will enable us to build on our existing successes and bring our quality service commitment to more countries.”
