Guy Shropshire CEO;

“I am delighted and privileged to take up the appointment of G’s Group CEO, as part of the transition to the next family generation.

The change in leadership will not be accompanied by a ‘big bang’ or sudden change in strategy. Instead, I wish to champion continuous improvement and a constant positive evolution, not revolution.  We have a good business and we remain market led, with a clear product focussed strategy. Additionally, our philosophy, promise and values has stood us in good stead and spanned multi generations. Our values: trust, expertise, quality, efficiency, and can-do absolutely underpin the great business that we have today, in addition to our commitment to ESG which broadens our overall objectives to incorporate a Triple-Bottom-Line strategy – People, Profit, Planet – central to the family. 

I believe we have an ever-stronger value proposition, well aligned to both the current and future market trends of our customers and consumers. Through a long-term commitment to our key strategic markets and range of core products, as well as by pushing the boundaries in new business development we will continue to drive the business forward.”
