Senior management team strengthened

UAP has strengthened its senior management team with three internal promotions: Julian Roberts, formerly test centre manager, takes on the role of product certification manager; John McLoughlin has been promoted to the role of technical services director; and Kamila Kasperowicz, formerly marketing manager, is now marketing director.

Both John and Kamila will also sit on the UAP operations board.

Julian is now responsible for all product testing, certification, product safety and customer testing. His new role aims to develop the company’s objective to develop innovative products that meet even the most stringent of industry regulations.

John will head up all new product development and oversee anything to do with product performance such as testing and safety. During his time at UAP, John has been instrumental in designing some of the company’s products, including the Soterian TS008 Slim Letterplate.

“In the twilight of my career, I find myself doing a job I love, with marvellous colleagues and in a company that has easily the best work atmosphere and leadership I have ever experienced,” John said. “I still attack each day with the same sense of purpose I have always had, determined to make a positive difference. On top of all that, I am still learning.”

Kamila is now responsible for all kinds of marketing, branding and sustainability. A member of the UAP team for seven years since joining as graphic designer, she has helped the company develop with her artwork, graphic design and more.

Under Kamila’s guidance, UAP will continue to implement environmentally friendly initiatives, such as completely discontinuing using plastics in all product packaging.
