Stuart Gibbons OBE

Managing Director

Spending time with family & friends, wine, being able to say “I made that” and finding time for reading

Wearing back-to-front baseball caps (and then squinting at the sun), my own mistakes, not having a purpose every day, unruly children.

If you could meet anyone, who would it be?
Either one of my own Grandfathers, they both died before I was born

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
The word ‘interesting’ is neither ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ and it buys you time to make the right decision.

People often ask me “ Why did you start a business like Le Mark “  it’s a really simple answer, necessity!

It all happened very fast, from being a part of a business family to going solo happened within one week!

However aged 29, anything was possible and I saw it as an opportunity to not only provide for my family, but to test and unlock a new entrepreneurial part of me.

34 years later, Le Mark is still growing, evolving and as an entity is something far more that I ever anticipated. It has its own family, regional & political voice, plus a unique sense of social awareness. As a manufacturer & supplier it has been an integral part of many national and global events. It has a wonderful group of committed sales partners and suppliers on all continents. It has grown from being ‘just’ a business, it is now an entity in its own right and continues to exceeded even my wildest dreams.
