After a four-year term turning around the business, he will be succeeded by Mark Wheeler, currently chief operating officer.
Wheeler has spent 14 years with the group, the last four as Group COO and has an unrivalled knowledge and understanding of the Company’s global operations.
John Mullen, a leading Quantum expert, will also be appointed to the group board with immediate effect as a Non-Executive Director.
Steve Norris, chairman of Driver Group, said: “In the four years that Gordon has led the company he has overseen the transformation of the business from a challenging financial position to one which is now consistently profitable, has cash reserves and, before the current Covid 19 crisis, had recommenced the payment of dividends.
“He now leaves us with our thanks and good wishes.”
“I am confident that the new leadership team headed by Mark Wheeler and ably supported by our Chief Financial Officer, David Kilgour, will lead Driver Group to further successes in the future.”
