Card Connection appoints a new managing director

Last week Card Connection, a leading greeting card publisher and franchisor in the UK and Ireland, announced that it has appointed Robina Every to be its new managing director. Ms Every, who will be celebrating her tenth anniversary with Card Connection this month, is taking over the day-to-day running of the organisation from company founder, Simon Hulme, who is to move into the role of chairman.

In addition to this, Card Connection has further strengthened its management team by promoting industry specialist, Natalie Turner, from the role of junior director to a main board creative director. Having previously been a senior product manager at the company, Ms Turner will be expanding her existing responsibilities to include active contribution to the wider development of the company.

“This is an exciting time for Card Connection,” confirms Robina Every, managing director of Card Connection. “We have seen significant growth in the greeting card industry over the past few years and we now have the opportunity to capitalise on this market further, through the innovative, complementary new product launches – specifically exploring the impulse gift sector. However, I see my main role as the driving force to assist our network of franchisees throughout the UK and Ireland expand their businesses,” continues Every. “We plan further improvements to our field training and programmes in addition to providing more assistance to help franchisees work more closely with our network of national retail accounts to increase the profitability of their franchises still further.”
