New year, new Managing Director
The IPG, the largest and fastest-growing membership group for independent plumbing, heating and bathroom specialists, has today announced the appointment of its new Managing Director, Glenn Fisher.
Glenn will be taking over the helm from current Founder and Chairman Robin Beal, who founded The IPG on a passion for supporting small, independent businesses. Since its creation, The IPG has gone from strength to strength and is now working with an extensive supplier network and has over 200 member locations nationwide.
Glenn, who has held various senior positions and is also a qualified accountant, brings a wealth of knowledge to the role, having worked with several owner-managed businesses. He is passionate in supporting independent companies and is keen to “Not just level the playing field, but reshape it in favour of our members, by creating an environment where they can thrive!”
When he isn’t working, the married father of two young sons is a keen lover of the outdoors; taking the opportunity to travel and camp with his family whenever he can.
The latest appointment, follows shortly on the heels of the announcement of David Cairns, as the selling groups’ Head of Supplier & Commercial Strategy and sets the wheels in motion for an extremely exciting year for the group, following on from the phenomenal opening of not one, but three, flagship stores in 2019.
Robin Beal Founder and Chairman at The IPG, said: “I am pleased with Glenn’s rapid promotion within The IPG family. Glenn brings a wealth of experience and most importantly a passion for independent businesses. I am confident that Glenn’s experience and determined nature will be instrumental in leading The IPG forward in our strategy for 2020.”
