SARAH CRUNCHING THE NUMBERS AS ULMA’S NEW FINANCIAL CONTROLLER

Nov 08, 2018 03:15 PM

ULMA Packaging UK has recruited Sarah Mahamat as Financial Controller, taking over the key position at the company’s Sheffield headquarters from James Couldwell, who has been appointed Business Manager for the south of England.

Sarah, who has quickly settled into her new role, is thrilled to be stepping into the vacancy left by James’ relocation at a time when ULMA Packaging UK is expanding. The company recently moved into new state-of-the-art premises in Dinnington to meet growing demand for its service and comprehensive equipment options from customers seeking to automate or modernise their production lines.

Sarah said: “I live locally and saw the new building going up so I’m delighted to be joining ULMA Packaging UK at such an exciting time. This is a great place to work with lots going on. It’s a busy and varied role that I can get my teeth stuck into and help the business to continue to flourish in the years ahead.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An accomplished finance manager and accountant who has handled the most complex contracts, Sarah’s work career began as an assistant manager at a sports and social club in Sheffield before a talent for numbers saw her broaden her experience with jobs in the facilities, manufacturing and utilities sectors.

After time as Credit Control Manager at Presto International UK Ltd, Sarah joined Carillion as a Finance Manager in 2007, working 11 years for the construction giant before taking up her position with ULMA Packaging UK.

In addition to her vital role of managing the company’s finances, Sarah will be taking on other tasks, while her 18 years’ experience in account management will be priceless for the UK operation after it was chosen to be the first recipient of a new company accounts package being rolled out by the ULMA Group’s global headquarters in Spain.

UK Managing Director, Chris Pickles, commented: “It gives me great pleasure to welcome Sarah to the ULMA Packaging UK team. I’m confident that Sarah will make a great success of this equally challenging and important role within our business.”

Investment in new staff, infrastructure and systems confirms ULMA Packaging UK as the leading go to supplier for the latest in high performance thermoforming, tray sealing, shrink, and sleeve wrapping technology ideal for food, pharmaceutical and many other sectors. The company also provides full after sales support, giving its customers peace of mind that production lines can be maintained effectively and businesses run smoothly and efficiently.
