Jarrold to head BPIF

Charles Jarrold will take over as CEO of the British Printing Industries Federation, starting on the 5th January 2015. He qualified as an accountant with Ernst and Young before joining the print division of family owned Jarrold and Sons Ltd, where his roles included Print Division Finance Director, Operations Director and Managing Director, before the sale of the division to a management buy-in team. He also ran Southernprint for five years and worked for St Ives plc as Divisional Managing Director of their web offset division, prior to its sale.

He succeeds Kathy Woodward, who died of cancer earlier this year.

At the same time, Gerald White, CEO Berforts Group, will take over from Tony Garnish as President of the BPIF. White has been involved in the printing industry since 1992 running SME companies in the commercial, DM, book and journal sectors. He previously trained as an accountant but left the profession to further his career in the manufacturing sector and was the Financial Director of a PLC defence company based in Suffolk before settling on a career in the printing sector.
