IWS Group Announces Leadership Changes: Welcoming New Divisional Managing Director


In an exciting development, IWS Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Gary Coleman as the new Divisional Managing Director for both Brandsafe and Rack Group, effective June 12, 2024. This strategic move comes as part of an ongoing review of the IWS Group’s operating structure.

Gary Coleman brings a wealth of experience to the role, having spent over 18 years in the industrial sector, primarily with NENE Warehouse Solutions. During his tenure at NENE, Gary held several key positions, including National Account Manager and Managing Director, demonstrating his expertise and leadership capabilities.

Gary expressed his enthusiasm for the new role, stating, “I am thrilled to join the talented team at IWS Group. Together, we will work towards driving the business forward, enhancing our service offerings, and ensuring we provide exceptional value to our customers. I look forward to contributing to the growth and success of Rack Group and Brandsafe and am excited about the opportunities ahead.”

In conjunction with this appointment, Susy Keating has decided to step down from her role at Brandsafe after a decade of dedicated service. Susy’s contributions have been instrumental in the growth and success of Brandsafe, and her decision to leave was made with careful consideration. She will remain with the company until the end of July, ensuring a smooth transition by working closely with Gary and her team.

“Over the past 10 years, Brandsafe has been a significant part of Susy’s professional journey. Her commitment and dedication have been invaluable to both Brandsafe and the IWS Group,” said Richard Harden, CEO of IWS Group. “We thank Susy for her remarkable service and wish her all the best in her future endeavours.”

The operational, sales, installation, and finance structures within Brandsafe and Rack Group will remain unchanged, ensuring continuity and stability for our clients and partners.

Please join us in welcoming Gary Coleman to the IWS Group team. We are confident that his extensive experience and leadership will drive continued success for both Brandsafe and Rack Group.
