Pall-Ex Group welcomes new Business Development Manager

Pall-Ex Group has bolstered its commercial team by welcoming a new Business Development Manager to its ranks.

Helen Day’s primary focus will be on the Fortec Distribution Network, and she brings a wealth of sector knowledge with her, having started her journey in the logistics industry over 25 years ago.

In the time since starting her career in logistics, she has worked for a number of leading businesses and has negotiated contracts with multiple highly respected, blue-chip organisations and specialised in offering tailored logistics services to clients moving freight between the UK and Ireland for numerous years.

Helen will be hoping to replicate these previous successes in her new role within the Pall-Ex Group, as she works to develop the portfolio of corporate clients for Fortec, based at Watford Gap, as well as for its shareholder membership.

Operating between the Fortec offices at Watford Gap, Northamptonshire and at Pall-Ex Group’s head office in Ellistown, Leicestershire, Helen is looking forward to the challenge of the new role.

She comments; “I have been a part of the industry for a while now and I really enjoy the fast-paced environment and the constant challenges every day brings. Finding solutions for my customers is what makes me love this job!"

In what has been an exciting seven months for the network, I am looking forward to playing my part in increasing the pallet volumes for the business and helping the network grow as its journey continues.”

Helen’s arrival will no doubt support business growth for Fortec and the Group as a whole.

Helen’s sales expertise and her track record of not only creating but developing profitable customer relationships is one of the qualities that impressed the senior management team at Pall-Ex Group whilst looking for the perfect candidate for the position.

Pall-Ex Group’s UK Commercial Director, Michelle Naylor, who herself has an impressive history of commercial success, will be working closely with Helen and describes what she is looking forward to, as Helen begins her time within the Group.

She comments; “Helen has a proven track record within the sector, and we were particularly impressed with her wealth of expertise with freight movements between the UK and Ireland.

“I have no doubts that Helen will be a success here and bring on high profile customers for Fortec a result.

"Her work ethic and attention to detail combined with her knowledge of the sector has meant she has fitted straight in and is already well on her way to establishing herself as a vital member of the team.”

Helen will be responsible for bringing on board higher value, corporate contracts as well as contracts that will be serviced by quality Fortec members, throughout the UK.

Anyone who would like to contact Helen to discuss their freight requirements in detail can email her on and she will be more than happy to work with you to find a logistics solution to suit your businesses’ needs.
