Gray Dawes Group has announced a new executive leadership team as it targets £300 million in turnover in the next two years.
The executive team has been created to sit above the senior leadership team of Gray Dawes to focus on the group’s strategic development.
Suzanne Horner, CEO, will head up the executive team and report to Gray Dawes-owner the Inchcape Family Estates Board.
David Bishop moves to the newly created role of chief operations officer from his current role as chief commercial officer. Bishop will focus on new commercial opportunities and the development of the group’s global ambitions.
Warren Dix takes over from Bishop as chief commercial officer. Dix joins from Reed & Mackay Australia where he was senior vice president of global sales.
The executive line-up is completed by Richard Allardice, who is promoted to chief financial officer from his current role as finance director, and Sophie Taylor who joined recently as chief technology officer.
Horner said: “This is such an exciting time for us and our customers. Through strong management, belief in our people, innovative technology and outstanding customer service, Gray Dawes has weathered the pandemic storm of the last two years better than most.
“As we now start to come out of that storm, we’re fantastically placed, both financially and from a skills perspective, to really drive our recovery while developing all parts of the business and new ventures.”
The changes will take effect from 1 April.
