I am very much looking forward to my new role as Chairman and overseeing Glevum going from strength to strength”.

We have been working towards this for some years now so I am confident that the transition will be smooth. I would like to thank Gary for this opportunity and our customers and staff for their support over the last year, which of course has had its challenges. I believe we have come out of it stronger though and am very much looking forward to the future”.
