Ian Cook

Managing Director | GWP Correx®

Ian Cook, GWP Group managing director

Ian, having completed his studies, worked in the steel for industry for many years. However, he changed industries and joined Great Western Packaging (as GWP was then known) in 1995.

In 2003, Corstat – then based in Wootton Basset just outside of Swindon – was acquired and became part of the newly formed GWP Group (and was eventually re-branded as GWP Conductive). Ian became Managing Director of this side of the business.

Due to his background and time at Corstat, Ian is the de-facto expert on all things conductive packaging at GWP. However, he also heads up both the GWP Coatings and GWP Correx divisions of the business, the latter seeing exceptional growth over the last few years. This has seen him develop outstanding knowledge and technical understanding of supply chain and reusable packaging and handling products.

Outside of work Ian likes to keep fit (having recently cycled from Lands’ End to John O Groats, and taken part in numerous runs and marathons for charity), as well as supporting his moto-racing grandson Max Cook.
