Craig Johnstone, Operations Director, The Director-e

Craig Johnstone
Operations Director

Managing Director of UK marketing services provider Mulberry Square, Craig Johnstone has 30 years of experience in the printing, publishing and marketing communications industry; the last 19 of which he has spent building his own print management and marketing services businesses in a very competitive and fast moving landscape.

Innovation has been fundamental to Craig’s business success, being a pioneer in the development of the print management sector in 1997 at the age of 27 and has since been a leading figure in the sector’s transition to marketing services – borne out by the British Printing Industry Federation’s testimony at MediaPro 2010.

A time-served lithographic multi-colour machine manager with an eye for colour and stickler for quality, he rapidly rose through the print industry ranks as an estimator, sales representative and business development manager with some of Leicestershire’s foremost and well respected printing companies, honing his skills and developing his knowledge whilst recognising that quality and service were the pillars that provide the foundation of success for any business.

He has been a firm advocate of life-long-learning and is the perfect example of how those with a thirst for knowledge can use social media and the World Wide Web to enhance and further their education, harness information and turn it into an opportunity not only for their own business but most importantly for the benefit of their clients.

Les first discussed his vision for what has become The Director-e with Craig in March 2015. Craig has since, with his marketing team, taken up the development of the company’s brand identity, honed and developed its online presence and helped to shape its strategy and proposition with his fellow directors to where it sits today.

Craig is particularly happy to speak about:

  1. The immense value that the over 50’s can bring to business.
  2. The importance of continual personal development.
  3. How important it is to be able to recognise and communicate the benefits you can offer, whether it be as a business or an individual, in relation to your target’s need.
