Esther is majority owner and Managing Director of STM Packaging Group. She has worked in sales and marketing in various parts of the packaging sector for many years, first in printed labels, then on to recycled paper and cardboard box production before taking up the MD’s role at STM. She augmented this wide practical experience by taking an MBA in 2002.
STM Packaging, which includes four brands – Sefton Transmail, The Polythene Company, Shirlplass and Packaging Products Online - manufacture and sell polyethylene products to a vast array of end users. There are two manufacturing sites in the Group, one in Norwich and another in Northamptonshire, which produce, print and convert the polythene film in large quantities for business to business sales. The on-line packaging merchant division sells to small businesses and eBayers. Esther has a particular passion for manufacturing and couldn’t envisage working for a company that doesn’t make stuff!
Outside work, Esther runs most days and is interested in natural history, motor sport and pre-Raphaelite art.
