Former chief financial officer, Richard Allely, steps up to take on role of CEO at PMP.

The seven-year PMP employee (pictured) has been acting CEO of the region’s largest printing company since 28 January this year, after the shock and mysterious departure of Brian Evans.

Following a two-month review, PMP’s Board considered Allely fit to stay on in the role under a three-year contract with a base renumeration of $815,000. The contract can be extended by a further two years by mutual agreement.

Allely will have a tough time shaking off the negative wrap that PMP has received after allegations that it had not delivered catalogues for major clients and retail giant Myer announced it would look for alternate means of distribution for some of its catalogues.

These are allegations that Allely has defended, insisting that he will guide the business into the future under a tight reign.

“PMP is a fundamentally sound company,” Allely said. “I have a clear view of the leadership team and the business needs required to meet that potential. I will be relentless in pursuing high-value business and delivering customer service excellence.”

On the back of Allely’s appointment, Peter George was announced as leader of PMP’s print business, replacing chief operating officer, Brian Ashton.

George has been a non-executive director of PMP since 2002. "Peter will start managing the print business in an executive role immediately," said Allely. "Given his background and experience, he is well qualified to deliver the transformation strategy."

More appointments will take place at PMP in the coming months to fill both the positions of CFO and company secretary. Allely expects current PMP employees to move into these roles.

“We have strong internal candidates for both positions,” Allely added.
