Hibbert to join GNG
Former Breasley executive Stuart Hibbert is to join the mattress division of GNG Group as sales director this month.
‘With our strong business model covering the medical and sport sectors, we intend to focus growth on our consumer mattress division beyond our current Komfi brand and white label accounts, with independents and high street retailers a strategic area for us to develop,’ says Phillip Whittell, GNG Group md.
‘I've respected Stuart for many years, admiring his work in growing Breasley from a foam conversion company to a national brand within the mattress sector, along with his work with the NBF. It’s a real endorsement for both the team and GNG Group that Stuart is coming on-board, and we are looking forward to a very successful 2020 and beyond. Based at our head office in Yorkshire, Stuart has already carefully selected his team of agents to grow our independents business and will be looking after our key accounts and new projects.’
‘Once I had met Phil, his team and seen the manufacturing plant, I realised the huge potential GNG has to grow in the consumer mattress sector. It also made me think how much I had missed the mattress industry and the great people who work in it,’ says Hibbert.
