PLEATED blinds company Sampsons has a new managing director.

Graham Reading succeeds Andrew Chalk, who has worked for the Stowmarket company for the past 10 years and has left to form his own marketing consultancy.

Mr Reading, who has held senior management positions with several international companies and has acted as a management and business consultant to other organisations, has recently relocated to Suffolk from Surrey.

The firm is best known for pioneering the concept of pleated blinds in 1952, but also has a division concentrating on the supply of high performance architectural ironmongery for use in timber windows and doors.
