Allan Lock has today (30th September 2019) been appointed by the board as the new Chief Executive of incodia. Allan will take up leadership of the business with immediate effect, working closely with incodia Chairman, Chris Huckle, to implement the company’s ambitious growth plans, building on the successes of the past 12 months.

Chris Huckle said: “I’m delighted to announce Allan’s appointment as we continue with incodia’s transformation programme. As an industry leading business we are committed to delivering first rate service, quality and products to our customers and Allan’s experience will be instrumental to our continued success.”

Previously at Mondi Group, Allan was Managing Director of the Consumer Goods Packing Business in the UK for the FTSE 100 packaging company. At Mondi he worked directly with customers such as Birds Eye, McCain, ABF and McBride.

“This is an incredibly exciting time to be joining the business.” Mr Lock said, “Incodia operates in a highly competitive market and has the capabilities and skills to deliver innovative products in conjunction with service and quality levels that are second to none. We are well placed to build an even stronger business for our clients, our staff and our shareholders and I’m honoured to be leading the team at this time.”

After an early career in the Royal Navy, Allan made the move to industry when he joined Courtaulds, which underwent a management buy-out to form the Betts business, before rebranding as Albéa. During his time with the Albéa group he was responsible for a number of business units and brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge.
