You may be seeing a new name and face around Encase Banbury! It is with great pleasure that we introduce to you our new Sales Manager, Jon Blackbourn. Jon will be looking after the Sales Team at Banbury and working closely with Banbury operations to deliver a smooth transition of new and existing business. During these difficult times, Jon’s passion and enthusiasm is a welcome addition to the team, bringing with him over 30 years’ experience in packaging, specialising in corrugated and print. Best of luck Jon!

How did you get into the packaging industry?

I have been in the print and packaging market sector for over 30 years. As a school leaver at 16, I was an apprentice at Cambridge University Press and from there moved into Business Development in the corrugated packaging industry.

What excites you about the future of cardboard packaging?

With my print background, the new single pass digital print technology coming to market is something that excites me. I strongly believe this will change the industry and change how brands use their packaging by incorporating smart-packaging technology and packaging personalisation.

Which aspect of the job are you most looking forward to?

Encase have brought me onboard to focus on the development of major brand accounts in line with the company’s strategic direction, which is my strength. The future for Encase is really bright and I am enjoying and looking forward to working alongside the team on the numerous exciting projects we have at the moment.

Tell us about an average day in your role, if there is one!

No day is the same, which is great! Mainly I am supporting both my external and internal teams and speaking with existing clients and potential new clients in our chosen pharma/FMCG and chemical industries.

What keeps you busy when you’re not at work?

My four children keep me on my toes! I am about to embark on learning to play golf so that should keep me busy also.

If you won the lottery, what would you buy first?

Something special for all of my family.

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Las Vegas, it is certainly on my bucket list.

What’s your biggest claim to fame?

Got to be working for Encase, of course!!

Tell us about the achievement you’re most proud of

Without doubt, my biggest achievement and the thing I am most proud of is my four fantastic kids.
