Adam James, operations director at CS Labels


Adam James has been promoted from production director to operations director at CS Labels, and will also become a member of the board of directors.

Mr James has over 18 years’ experience in the labelling industry and was recruited by CS Labels nine years ago as production manager. He has held various roles in the labelling industry within distribution and warehousing, production scheduling and pre-press.

Simon Smith, managing director said, ‘Adam has been instrumental in the delivery of our strategic plan over the past nine years and I have relied on him enormously. His natural ability in research and development brings my ideas truly to life and his impact on the business has been noted by the board; hence why we have chosen to ask him to join us. They were particularly impressed with the work he has contributed to the development of digital flexible packaging, and the labelling innovation that has led to CS Labels winning many awards over the years.

‘His talent, expertise and commitment are highly valued and I’m looking forward to him getting involved in a more day-to-day operations role at CS Labels in addition to high-level strategic projects as we continue to push on with our growth plan. We remain a family orientated business; however in order for us to continue to excel we felt that we needed to expand the gene pool a little wider in today’s competitive and rapidly changing industry. We’re really pleased to have Adam as a part of that.’

Mr James said, ‘I’m delighted to be appointed to the board. I’m looking forward to more progress with the business over the short and long term as we continue to innovate, including a very important announcement that we’ll make next year. We’ve achieved a lot over the past nine years and are still going from strength-to-strength with double digit growth, even in today’s tough market. Watch this space.’
