As a people-orientated business, we are delighted to have been able to make this appointment from within, demonstrating the quality of talent we have, as well as our commitment to developing our people. I look forward to working with Steve in his new role.”

Having been involved in significantly growing the size of our business since I joined in 2016, I look forward to delivering the next phase of our growth journey and maximising our strengths in a competitive marketplace. GTFM is an organisation driven by a culture of being authentically people focused in everything that we do, and I am excited to lead the business into what promises to be a very bright future.”
