Iglo Group CEO Martin Glenn discusses the positive results of creating the PACE culture: preview
After six years of leading a hugely successful turnaround at frozen food company Iglo Group, Chief Executive Officer Martin Glenn announced his departure in January, 2013. He had reshaped Iglo into Europe’s largest frozen food business, making it the market leader in frozen food, 2.5 times the size of its nearest rival with a strong track record of innovation and a demonstrated ability of consolidating the frozen sector through the successful acquisition and integration of Findus Italy. As part of the turnaround strategy, Glenn engaged culture-shaping firm Senn Delaney, a Heidrick & Struggles company, to help create a common ‘PACE’ culture, based on values of Performance, Aspiration, Energy and Collaboration, as a platform for results and top-line performance. In this interview, Glenn reflects on the journey and how the PACE culture has been a key tool to enable and accelerate its growth strategy that resulted in record financial performance.
