The Chief Executive Officer of consumer goods service provider Swallowfield has decided to step down.

Ian Mackinnon, who has been with the company 13 years, will resign on August 15th following a hand-over period.

The firm, which provides services to brands and retailers in the cosmetics, toiletries and household goods sectors, has started a recruitment process for a new boss.

"I have really enjoyed my 13 years at Swallowfield," Mackinnon said.

"It is a clich, but a business is truly about the people and Swallowfield is very fortunate to have good staff who I am very honoured to have worked with. I will also miss the many other stakeholders in the business - customers, suppliers and shareholders and I would like to thank them for their support over the years."
