Paul joins the team and we join an elite

Envelope Systems now has a third generation of the Miles family in its team. Paul Miles, 35, (pictured above centre) has joined to help with business development.

The appointment places the company in an elite 13 per cent of British family businesses to make it to the third generation, according to research.

We will celebrate our 80th anniversary in just over a year's time. Companies House data confirms this also places us in the top 1 per cent of British companies for longevity.

Paul's arrival comes at an exciting time. Envelope Systems has been growing well with more than 7,000 customers for our market-leading Gift Aid envelopes and boxed sets. We are also working hard on the development of our online service for managing Gift Aid, Fund Filer, in the run up to the introduction of online claiming by HMRC.

Managing Director, Penny Miles, (pictured above right), said: "It is great to have Paul on board. It was a bit unexpected but he became available just when we needed him."

It seems that Paul has ink in his blood having previously worked in the print buying division of Communisis plc.

Paul said: "It had never been part of my plan to join the family firm but it was such a good opportunity to join the business at a crucial time in it's development, I felt I had to do it. And I'm very pleased I have."

Paul's father, Tony Miles, (pictured left), has seen 48 years service with the company including 35 as managing director until his retirement from this position several years ago. His father before him, Ron Miles, joined the business in the 1940s.

Our company was formed in 1933 and has its roots in printing engineering. We became involved in church collection envelopes in the 1950s.
