Adfield Group is delighted to welcome Gareth Thomas as their new Chief Operating Officer

Adfield Group, one of the UK’s leading full-service marketing agencies, recently appointed Gareth Thomas as their new Chief Operating Officer (COO). With an extensive background in management within the automotive industry, Gareth is poised to provide the company with the leadership they need to expand and evolve.

In a strategic move to drive business growth, owner and Chief Executive Officer Ian Field will hand over the operational day-to-day management responsibilities to Gareth while continuing to nurture the long-standing client relationships he has built over the years. Ian and Gareth are excited to explore new opportunities in exhibitions, conferences and events, as well as new ventures for the Adfield Group.

Commenting on this exciting appointment, Ian said: “We are thrilled to welcome Gareth as our new COO. I have known Gareth for over 20 years, both in a business capacity and as a friend. I have confidence that his values, experience, capabilities and leadership are the right fit for Adfield and our clients.”

In Gareth’s previous position as Franchise Director at BMW/Mini/Motorrad, he earned an esteemed reputation for driving staff development and business growth. Having enjoyed 22 prosperous years in managerial roles within automotive retail, he decided to pursue a new opportunity in a different industry.

Remarking on his choice to become Adfield’s COO, Gareth commented: “After 28 years in automotive retail, I wanted a challenge and new role where I could use my skills and experience to make a real difference. When the chance to join the Adfield family presented itself, seizing the opportunity seemed like a natural choice. I love that it is a family business, with great people, values, capabilities and ambitions that set it apart from other companies.”

He continued: “Something that motivates me in business is supporting people to exceed their potential. Empowering my team to develop and secure success by nurturing their talents is something I find incredibly rewarding.”

The focal point of Gareth’s vision for Adfield is growth. From maintaining and developing existing client relationships to securing work with new businesses, he aims to employ a range of strategies designed to ensure long-term growth for the company.

As a third-generation, family-owned business, Adfield is renowned for their personal touch. They invest time in building relationships with clients, ensuring that the marketing, event management and telemarketing services they provide are of the highest quality.

While many of the businesses they work with operate in the manufacturing industry, the company has collaborated with clients involved in a variety of other sectors, such as rail, automotive retail, exhibitions and logistics.
