CEO Martin Glenn

Creating a competitive, collaborative culture to enable growth

After six years of leading a hugely successful turnaround at frozen food company Iglo Group, Chief Executive Officer Martin Glenn announced his departure in January, 2013. He had reshaped Iglo into Europe's largest frozen food business, making it the market leader in frozen food, 2.5 times the size of its nearest rival with a strong track record of innovation and a demonstrated ability of consolidating the frozen sector through the successful acquisition and integration of Findus Italy.

As part of the turnaround strategy, Glenn engaged Senn Delaney to help create a common ‘PACE' culture, based on values of Performance, Aspiration, Energy and Collaboration, as a platform for results and top-line performance. Glenn reflects on the journey and how the PACE culture has been a key tool to enable and accelerate its growth strategy that resulted in record financial performance in this interview. Iglo capped 2012 by by honored as the Food Manufacturing Company of the Year by the Food Manufacturing Excellence Awards in recognition for its all around excellence, innovation and impressive business performance.

"2011 was our best year yet. We achieved our fifth consecutive year of core category sales and EBITDA growth and delivered on all of our financial targets. The acquisition of Findus in Italy has been transformational and I am proud of the management team's ability to integrate a large-scale business. We are Europe's leading ‘pure-play' branded frozen food business, with all three businesses delivering net sales growth," said Glenn.
