Tom Gregson, Distribution Team Leader, Walthamstow

If it wasn’t for Tom Gregson and his team, A.G. Barr’s products wouldn’t find their way onto shop shelves across large parts of the UK.

Tom GregsonHaving joined A.G. Barr just over a year ago as a Distribution Graduate with the direct sales division at Walthamstow, he’s now on secondment at Milton Keynes working alongside our logistics partners, Eddie Stobart, and gaining unique insight to what they do and how they work for A.G. Barr.

Tom is undertaking training with FORS (Freight Operator Recognition Scheme) London, run in conjunction with TFL (Transport for London), which is all to do with Transport Management. He’s also taking part in the company’s Aspiring Managers Programme, designed to enhance his leadership skills.

Distribution Team Leader Tom (23) from Surrey, starts work at 5am each morning at our Walthamstow depot and makes sure the 11 drivers in his team know where they are going and what they are delivering each day.

Tom said: "This is a great company to work for – not one day is the same. As a purely FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) company, it makes us all very results driven and makes it a very fast paced place to work.

"The best thing about working for A.G. Barr would have to be the people that make up the business. Since I started, everyone has been very welcoming, friendly and helpful. At A.G. Barr you are part of the family not a number."
