GMS Group of Companies CEO Neil Male is announced as Transformational Leader at the 2019 West Midlands Leadership Awards. 

Shining the spotlight on the region’s established and emerging leaders, the West Midlands Leadership Awards were created last year to recognise the importance of leadership in helping to drive the region’s businesses and economy forward and to celebrate the best exponents of modern leadership.

CEO Neil was shortlisted for two categories this year, Transformational Leader and Company Leader (100+ employees) against tough competition from the leaders of National Express, NEC Group, Pertemps and Wilmott Dixon.

Since becoming CEO of GMS Group of Companies in 2005, Neil has grown the Bromsgrove based security business from £2.3m to £13m. GMS now employs over 500 staff nationally with clients including Jaguar Land Rover, Cemex, VAX, Aston Martin & Kerry Foods.

“I’m very proud to have won this award. It is an honour to be recognised amongst some great leaders throughout the West Midlands, not only for myself but for the whole of the GMS team whom all play a part in delivering innovative security solutions to our customers.”
