Doff Portland appoints new non-executive director to management board

Nottingham-based Doff Portland – the largest manufacturer of slug control products in the UK – has appointed Trevor Millen to the management board, as non-executive director.

With a long and successful background in international branded and private label consumer goods, Millen has worked his way up through marketing and operational roles, to general management.

Millen’s former position was as divisional chief executive and member of the supervisory board at Princes, the £2bn European food and beverages subsidiary of the Japanese Mitsubishi Corporation.

Millen’s earlier career as managing director at McBride – Europe’s largest distributor of private label household cleaners and personal care products – will enable him assist with Doff Portland’s plans of growth and investment in the home and garden market.

Matt Jones, managing director of Doff Portland, said: “Trevor’s wealth of experience in branded goods and manufacturing will contribute to Doff Portland’s position as garden retailers’ number one choice for slug and pesticide products.

“We are positive that Trevor will play a pivotal role in driving Doff Portland into new and lucrative home and garden markets. His appointment is testament to Doff’s ongoing success since the company’s acquisition by 151 Products last year.”

Doff Portland was acquired by 151 Products – the UK’s largest manufacturer and supplier of quality, value household and garden items – in December 2012.
