Since then Greg has helped a new HomeServe emerge; a commercially powerful business built on strong principles with the right culture of committed People delivering effortless service to customers.

Reflecting on his award win in December Greg said: “It is an absolute privilege to have been recognised with the award for Most Progressive Leader. I am really fortunate to lead a company that is commercially powerful, built on strong principles and a culture we are proud of. This award is a recognition of the efforts of all our People – a leader simply can’t be progressive without an amazing team who have all been instrumental in building the special culture we have at HomeServe.
