Gill, who has resigned from his role as chairman and director of Story Events, has been tasked with implementing a new three-year strategy. "My remit is to deliver sustainable growth and profitability based on a three-year strategy, which was approved by the board in January," he explained.
After spending three months in the business, he said that he is confident that he can add shareholder value to a solid business base, with a strong team in place.
"I also feel very well supported by our non-exec chairman, David Gilbertson, who has helped me to implement some core change management over the last few months. Finally, after 30 years in the business, I continue to get a great deal of personal satisfaction in creating career development opportunities for the very many talented people in the business."
