Ruth Cook, GWP Group

Ruth is one of the founding directors of GWP Group, having worked for the company since its inception as Great Western Packaging in August 1990.

Originally Financial Director – a role she held until 2008 when she became Managing Director of the GWP Packaging division – Ruth has an intricate knowledge and understanding of everything happening at GWP.

This covers virtually every area of the business, from production, planning, design, sales, purchasing and all the way through to customer service and support. This diverse knowledge and expertise has been a key factor in GWP achieving significant growth over the last few years.

Now Managing Director of GWP Group, Ruth has also been on the Board of Directors of Corrboard – the corrugated material manufacturer with which GWP has close, long-standing relationship with.

When not in work Ruth enjoys spending time with her family, travelling, and is heavily involved with coaching and supporting the Swindon based Tigersharks swimming club.
