Briggs sets date to leave paper industry

2000 paul briggs

Mark Lyndon Paper Enterprises’ UK managing director Paul Briggs is to retire at the end of August after spending his entire working life in the recovered fibre industry.

Briggs said he had loved every minute: “It has been a pleasure working in a sector with so many characters, and where you can trust people and know a deal will be honoured.”

Briggs set up Mark Lyndon in Nottingham in 2007 and turned it into the UK’s biggest recovered paper exporter within four years.

“I’m going to miss everyone I have worked with here and in the wider industry,” he said.

“But now is a good time to move on when I am at an age where I can spend more time with the grandkids, as well as do some of the things I have wanted to do in life, but have been too busy purchasing recovered paper and networking.”

Colin Clarke, who joined Mark Lyndon from DS Smith in 2015, will succeed Briggs as managing director on 1 September.

The company sends more than 1.5 million tonnes of recycled fibre to the Lee & Man paper mills in China.
