BPIF Level 5 graduate rises to printing company director

BPIF Level 5 graduate rises to printing company director

Phil Gowling, an employee of BPIF member H&H Reeds, based in Penrith and Milnthorpe, has been promoted from works manager to production director. 

Gowling was one of the first people in the UK to benefit from the BPIF inaugural Graduate Management Programme, aimed at new and aspiring middle managers seeking to develop and consolidate their leadership knowledge, skills and behaviours to get better results from their teams. It is designed to help individuals have a better understanding of themselves as leaders, and develop skills to plan and lead complex team activities.

Gowling applied what he had learned on the management programme, along with the knowledge from his old role and has now been rewarded with his promotion. He stated “I am grateful to the directors at H&H Reeds, and the H&H Group chief executive for this opportunity. In my time at the company I have gained extensive knowledge of the staff and the business, which combined with my external studies, gives me a great insight into our company. I am looking forward to making a positive input in the strategic planning for the future, and taking H&H Reeds Printers forward."
