Pall-Ex has appointed former Palletways network development director Michelle Naylor as its new UK commercial director.
This is Pall-Ex’s second major appointment of a former Palletways director to a major role in the company this year. In March Pall-Ex recruited Barry Byers, former Palletways network director, to the role of Pall-Ex MD.
Naylor brings 25 years’ experience in the logistics industry to the role, including 12 years at Palletways. She will be based at Pall-Ex’s central hub in Ellistown.
Her brief is to lead the network’s sales team, increase Pall-Ex’s corporate customer base, build partnerships and bring on board new contracts.
The appointment follows a number of new hires and promotions at Pall-Ex ahead of its acquisition of Fortec, which will create the UK’s largest pallet network.

MD Barry Byers said: “We are bringing in fresh talent and new perspectives as we fully prepare Pall-Ex for national and international growth.
“Michelle is a driven leader with a focus on high standards of service, which makes her a great fit for Pall-Ex and our quality ethos.
“Recent weeks have been incredibly tough on the logistics industry as a whole and we have all had to adapt to an ever-changing landscape.
“Michelle’s proven results in improving member profitability and hub volumes will be a real asset to the Pall-Ex team as we work together to strengthen and build the network for our customers and our members.”
Naylor said: “I am excited to be joining Pall-Ex at this time of change and look forward to using my sector knowledge to build on its success.
“It is a real pleasure to be part of such an enthusiastic team and forward-thinking business, and while recent events have been challenging for the entire industry, I’m confident that Pall-Ex will continue to innovate the sector.”
