Huhtamaki UK announces two senior management appointments

dezLeading global packaging specialist Huhtamaki has announced the appointment of Dez Timmiss as general manager UK & Ireland and David Biggs as UK sales and marketing director.

David was formerly sales and marketing director at Matthew Algie, the UK’s largest independent coffee roaster, whilst Dez joins Huhtamaki from Nestlé, where he enjoyed a successful 28 year international career within their breakfast cereals business.  Dez commented: “I’m excited to join Huhtamaki at a time when it’s looking to strengthen its European foodservice business and support the increasing growth seen in the UK food-to-go market.  The chance to join a company which is experiencing significant growth and which can help shape the market with its investment in NPD is extremely exciting, and will present challenges that I’m very much looking forward to being part of.”
