One of the strengths of Glover’s Bakery is the long service of many of its employee’s. For a Company that has been trading for 31 years, there are many who have worked for over 10 years continuous service, this is approx a third of the workforce, some have been here 20 years.

General Manager - Tony Bain
Tony has worked for Glover’s Bakery since 12 August 1984, but has been involved in the baking industry long before then. Tony worked with Alf at another leading bakery company in the North West, before joining Glover’s Bakery.

Tony's position within Glover's Bakery include Purchasing, Health & Safety, Training and Quality Assurance.

Company Secretary & Business Development - Stephanie Bowker
Stephanie has worked for Glover’s since before leaving school, volunteering to work in the shops and bakery in the family business whilst still at school.

Stephanie’s responsibilities now include creating all the point of sale material that is seen in the shops and this internet site that you are now reading. Stephanie is a skilled cake decorator and enjoys cake decorating and photography. The next area that Stephanie will be looking at will be the creation of a cake studio.

Accounts & Payroll - Andrea Beirne
Andrea is a relatively new recruit to the management team; having been employed since 7 July 2003. Andrea’s involvement with the business, however, goes back long before then as she enjoyed working for the family business in the shops when she was at school.

Andrea has a great deal of responsibility in making sure that the business is able to meet everyone’s financial requirements.

Bakery Manager - Richard Griffiths
Richard has worked for many years in the bakery trade, and has worked for Glover’s Bakery since 9 April 2001. Richard has the total responsibility for making sure that enough products are made on time at the right quality each day.

Being a proud Welsh speaking Welshman who teaches Rugby League to youngsters, Richard is a valuable member of the management team. Richard is normally the first to have to respond to customer requirements, especially in emergencies, i.e. an order that has been overlooked or someone in the bakery has performed a King Alfred and the products have to be remade. Just as with playing Rugby, Richard is not one to shy away from any problem and takes things head-on and in his stride.

Company Sales Manager – Louise Taylor
Louise originally started working for the Company as a Saturday Girl over 30 years ago, re-joining us in 2000 as our Retail Sales Manager.  Louise left to set up her own small business in 2006 before re-joining us in January 2011 as our Wholesale Sales Manager.  In 2014 she was promoted to Company Sales Manager and is responsible for all sales aspects of the Company, covering both Wholesale and Retail.

Retail Sales Manager –Karen Cowley
Karen’s retail responsibilities have grown over the 16 years she’s been with us.  In 1999 she started out as a part-time Shop Assistant at our Seven Stars shop in Leyland, then in 2004 became Shop Manager of our Leyland Lane shop and in 2006 became Assistant Retail Sales Manager.    

More recently, when the opportunity arose, Karen took on the temporary role of Retail Sales Manager whilst we were reviewing our internal Company structure.  During that time she took the job in her stride and showed us she had the skills needed for the new role of Retail Sales Supervisor and in May 2015 she was promoted.  Karen is now responsible for the smooth running of our 6 Retail outlets, which is not an easy task as they are based within 5 different towns/villages.  Communication and good time-management are key qualities needed for this position.
