Staff Profile – Simon Gregory

Simon Gregory is the Sales Manager for Swanline Paper & Board and has been with Swanline for almost one year.

Before Swanline, Simon gained his experience in Sales in construction recruitment and previous to that in the retail sector.

Simon deals with and speaks to many of our Paper & Board customers every day, regarding their material and project needs. Simon advises current and prospective customers on the benefits of using Swanline Group. Simon enjoys discussing our sustainable ethos and our 100% recyclable materials, showing customers that they can have an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic without compromising on quality or price.

Simon uses various ways to communicate with customers, whether that be e-mail and telephone, or social media and face to face meetings.

Simon tells us: “I know it may sound cliché, but the people are my favourite part of Swanline, there is so much support and knowledge on offer at Swanline, they’re honestly some of the best people you’ll ever meet.” Simon continued to tell us his favourite memory so far from being a part of the Swanline team. “I attended the UK Graphics Awards in September 2021, which was an amazing opportunity to meet people in the industry and expand on my steadily growing knowledge.”

Outside of Swanline, Simon enjoys spending time with his family and his two young daughters that mean everything to him. In his spare time, he loves playing on his guitar as well as being a huge Aston Villa fan.

Simon’s one piece of advice he stands by is to try and live your life in the present moment, as John Lennon said: ‘Life is what happens to you, while you’re busy making other plans.’
