Graham Massey has led the GS Group for nearly 40 years and in that time has accumulated a brilliant legacy at the Paignton-based distributor.
Having been an engineering design contractor and prior to that a structural civil engineer for North Sea oil platforms, he had vast experience of project management and health and safety legislation knowledge to draw upon when entering the catering equipment industry. Over the years he has overseen the company’s expansion to encompass engineering and refrigeration and air conditioning divisions.
Graham has the wisdom to steer the group’s ship steadily while allowing each division’s head to oversee the day-to-day business. He is currently working on revitalising the company’s branding and website to allow the firm to continue to be an industry leader in the south west.
While GS Group has a strong line of expertise in the care home sector, Graham does much caring of his own, having undertaken work for various charities following the sad passing of his wife Sheena in 2011. This comprises the nationwide Street Pastors charity for which he patrols Torquay town centre on Friday nights, offering much-needed support and medical assistance to the homeless, vulnerable people, and the intoxicated. He is also a trustee on the South Devon Evangelical Trust, a regular volunteer at a children’s summer camp in Cornwall, and a trustee for Eagles Mount Adventures, providing holiday camps for the poor mountain village children and orphans in China.
Graham recently received Cedabond’s Bob McNab Award in recognition of his efforts.
