The IPG has appointed Glenn Fisher as its new managing director.
Mr Fisher will be taking over from current founder and chairman Robin Beal, who founded The IPG with 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.
Mr Fisher, 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 about supporting independent companies and has said he 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!”
The latest appointment follows shortly on the heels of the announcement of David Cairns, as the selling groups’ head of supplier and 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.”
To mark Clean Air Day, Mark Bouldin, healthy buildings expert at Johnson Controls explains why the UK needs a new approach to clean air in buildings.
If you had the choice of breathing clean air for 90% of the time or 10% of the time, which would you choose? Well, currently, the emphasis is firmly on the 10%. From governments, campaigners and businesses, there has been a huge push to clean the air we breathe outside. And there’s no denying the importance of that. However, given the average member of the British public spends 22 hours of their day indoors, it seems negligent not to place the same level of attention on indoor air quality (IAQ).
