GNG Group, is delighted to announce that Stuart Hibbert has joined us as Sales Director for our Mattress Manufacturing Division.
Stuart has over 30 years’ experience in the bed, and specifically mattress, industry. After leaving the Simmons Group he co-founded the Breasley consumer arm 15 years ago, building it into one of the largest mattress brands in Britain, and pioneering the compressed bedding sector.
Stuart said, “once I had met Phil, his team and seen the manufacturing plant, I realised the huge potential GNG have to grow in the consumer mattress sector. It also made me think how much I had missed the mattress industry and the great people who work in it.”
Based at our Head Office in Yorkshire, Stuart joins us to develop and expand our consumer mattress division. He has already carefully selected his team of agents to grow our independents business and will be looking after our key accounts and new projects.
MD of GNG Group Phillip Whittell says, “With our strong business model covering the Medical & Sport sectors, we intend to focus growth on our consumer mattress division beyond our current Komfi brand and white label accounts, with independents and high street retailers a strategic area for us to develop. I’ve respected Stuart for many years, admiring his work in growing Breasley from a foam conversion company to a national brand within the mattress sector, along with his work with the NBF. It’s a real endorsement for both the team and GNG Group that Stuart is coming on-board, and we are looking forward to a very successful 2020 and beyond!
