Meet the team
Pete – Director
I’m a time served weaver with over 36 years experience in the narrow fabric weaving industry,
I have worked for some of the largest weaving companies here in the UK, starting as a weaving technician at Lilly’s narrow fabrics in the late 70’s and with various career moves and promotions finishing as a Production Director at a branch of then the Charnwood Elastic Group. GB Labels was founded along with GB Nametapes, in 2004
I’ve been married to Donna for 28yrs, have two sons Luke & Jason that have now joined GB Labels after having successfully completing their own career paths. Outside of work I’m a Karate Black Belt (4th Dan) and ran my own club for over 10 years.
Football, Golf, F1 and spending down time socialising with family and friends are also important to me.
Tracey – New Business Manager
I have spent most of my career working in the legal profession after obtaining the ‘LLB Hons Degree in Law’ from the University of Derby.
I have continued my legal studies by obtaining further professional qualifications from the University of Cardiff. In more recent years I have worked for Trading Standards having obtained the ‘Foundation Certificate’ in Consumer Affairs and Trading Standards awarded by the Trading Standards institute.
I have a passion for travel and my most recent trip was a five week stint travelling around South East Asia visiting four different countries. I love a good book to read, mainly autobiographies.

Hi, I’m Luke, and I live in Derby with my Fianancé of five years with our English Bull Terrier, Diesel. Currently working for GB Labels as a Graphic Design specialist, designing garment branding products for our customers.
I was born in Derby but moved to Pembrokeshire in South West Wales when I was 14 and studied Architectural Design at UWIC. Having moved back to Derby I worked in various direct sales positions in Derby and Nottingham before joining GB Labels.
In my spare time I’m a 1st Dan Black Belt in Wadoryu Karate and possibly the shortest goalkeeper in history.
