Paul Stainton joins IPLC

We are pleased to announce that Paul Stainton has joined the office of IPLC in the UK in the position of Partner UK.
Paul has worked for over 33 years in the buying departments of the Co-Op and Aldi in the UK, leading buying teams responsible for multi-million-pound turnovers.
As the very first buyer at Aldi UK, Paul developed private label ranges from scratch across many ambient, frozen, chilled, and non-food categories. Managing performance in periods of unprecedented growth, he was responsible for supplier negotiations, category strategies and private label new product sourcing and design development.

“Private Label share in the UK has grown from 46.8% to 52.7% in the past 8 years. As one of the leading countries in private label innovation, the UK offers suppliers tremendous opportunity for growth. Having a deep understanding of retailer requirements in private label, I feel my knowledge and experience will be an asset to suppliers. I am delighted to join the IPLC and their team of international consultants”
Koen de Jong, Managing Partner IPLC:
“We are delighted to strengthen our office with this seasoned retail professional. The UK is the cradle of private label and virtually all strategic innovations originated in this market over the past few decades. Paul experienced the enormous development up close and developed sustainable relationships with suppliers from all over Europe. We are on the eve of major changes in the market and with a strong presence in the UK we hope to assist our clients even better than before on relevant issues”.
