Gist appoints chief executive


Basingstoke, UK: Gist has appointed Michael Chambers as its new chief executive.

Chambers, pictured above, has held key operational and business roles during his 25-year career with the company. He started at Gist as an operations manager at the Barnsley site in 1994 before being promoted into a number of different positions, culminating in his appointment as chief operating officer in 2016.
 
Chambers said: “It is a privilege to take on the role as chief executive of the business within which I have built my career. The current Covid crisis has shown just how vital food logistics is to our society and I am immensely proud of how our people have performed so consistently throughout the pandemic.
 
“These are truly extraordinary times that require us to act and think differently about how we run our business. I look forward to building on Gist’s strong foundations with a renewed focus on driving efficiency and continuous improvements to benefit our customers, shareholders and employees.”
 
Chambers’ appointment follows the decision of former chief executive Martin Gwynn to retire.
