Geoff Gorst moves on from Meyer

After working for housewares supplier Meyer for 31 years, business development director Geoff Gorst has decided it is time “to take life a bit easier”.

Geoff commented: “Having commuted each week away from my home in Scotland for the last 16 years, this decision will enable me to focus the time and energy on my home life, family and health in a way that has not been possible during my recent career.”

For many years Geoff sat on Meyer’s board, initially as UK sales director, and for the past six years as business development director for the EMEA region.

Meyer Group chairman Mark Ivory shared some of Geoff’s career highlights. “Geoff joined Meyer in January 1989 and quickly established himself as a successful driver of the company’s sales,” he said.

“He is widely credited with establishing the Circulon brand distribution that enabled it to achieve its position as the most desired premium non-stick cookware in the UK market. He led a strong sales organisation for many years as UK sales director, building a substantial business across all retail channels, and becoming a well-recognised and respected industry figure.

“Geoff’s more recent responsibilities have involved leading the company’s development across the EMEA region and pushing forward the market leadership position that it enjoys in the Middle-East.

“On behalf of the board and all my colleagues, I would like to express our true appreciation of Geoff’s commitment, loyalty and good humour throughout his time at Meyer.”

Geoff added: “I’ve had a wonderful career at Meyer. The company supported me throughout all of my 31 years with them. As I look at the strengths of the team today, and the new innovation it continues to bring to market, I know the company will only continue to grow from strength to strength.”

Geoff left his role at the end of June. Meyer plans to announce its new organisational structure for EMEA in the coming weeks.
