“I am committed to making G&S a successful, sustainable and enjoyable company to work for, and some of my proudest moments at G&S have been witnessing the achievements of our people. Whether it’s seeing someone who started as an apprentice gain their trade or someone in a junior role progress through to management, it’s what makes my job rewarding and worthwhile.”
