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.
Donna – Accounts Director
After spending several years in the weaving trade, working on narrow fabric looms, I then went into teaching at Green Hill School at HLTA level, specialising in Humanities. I then went on to gain office and accounting qualifications in Intuit Quickbooks and Sage and joined G.B. Labels LTD, and now look after the company accounts.
I enjoy reading, swimming, walking and socialising with friends and family.
