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's position within Glover's Bakery include Purchasing, Health & Safety, Training and Quality Assurance.
Company Secretary & Business Development - Stephanie Bowker
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 has a great deal of responsibility in making sure that the business is able to meet everyone’s financial requirements.
Bakery Manager - Richard Griffiths
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
Retail Sales Manager –Karen Cowley
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.
