APC Overnight strengthens board with new appointments

By APC Overnight on 11th December 2014

Paul Griffiths joins APC Overnight’s board of directors with 25 years’ experience of the logistics industry, having overseen the success of Harrogate-based Able Couriers since 1989. Paul’s latest tenure marks the start of his second spell on the APC Overnight board, having had a directorial role between 2006 and 2012.

With a wealth of experience in the independent retail sector prior to his current role as Managing Director of Able Couriers, Paul’s role on the APC Overnight board of directors will see him use his knowledge of both customer needs and delivery capabilities.

Paul commented: “As the proud owner of a delivery firm which has provided outstanding results for customers for a number of years, I am looking forward to the challenge of helping the APC Overnight network continue to achieve consistently high standards.

“APC is completely unique in the way it operates, which provides us with a fantastic opportunity to place teamwork at the heart of everything we do. By working together closely, our network can continue to set standards even higher for the business as a whole.”

As part of the organisation’s continued growth, Mark Fletcher, the firm’s Finance Director, will also take on the role of Company Secretary. Mark has worked for the Company for more than 17 years and has provided strong financial leadership along with financial strategies that have facilitated the year-on-year growth of the business. Mark has in-depth Company knowledge and is ideally placed to oversee the effective administration of the business as it aims to achieve year-on-year growth for the 20th successive year.

The two new appointments follow Ivor Skinner’s retirement from the APC Overnight board of directors; a position he held for 15 years, whilst also fulfilling a number of key executive positions including that of Managing Director.

Karl Brown, CEO at APC Overnight, said: “Paul and Mark’s new roles will undoubtedly strengthen the collective expertise of our board, whilst also ensuring we remain fully committed to maintaining high service levels for our customers.

“With the company now in its 20th year, it is vital we build on the successes of the last two decades and continue to achieve unrivalled levels of year-on-year growth.”
