New MD for GPG
Peter Macfarlane has officially handed over the baton of MD responsibilities to Dr. Stefan Gassner.
“I am very pleased to announce that Dr. Stefan Gassner is taking up the role of Managing Director for Grosvenor Performance Group. This is something Stefan and I have been planning for considerable time, with transition formally commencing earlier this year. After 9+ years in the role of MD I think its time for someone new to be driving our strategy and I strongly believe that Stefan will give Grosvenor the leadership to continue forging ahead to bigger and better things. Stefan joined the firm almost 10 years ago and has been an outstanding contributor to our growth and strategy. I know he will continue to uphold our Beliefs and our brand promise to clients.
For me, I am not going anywhere. I will continue to play a leadership role in the business, hopefully get the chance to do a bit more consulting, and continue on as Chair of the Board.
I want to thank all our clients and partners over the past decade for their role in Grosvenor’s growth and success. But mostly I want to thank our outstanding staff and leadership team for their contribution, support and patience with my own foibles.
I look forward to an even more interesting, challenging and successful time ahead, and being a major part of that!”
“A big shout out to Peter Macfarlane who has not only tripled the size of our firm during his time as MD but also made it a great place to work. Today we offer state of the art consulting solutions for the public and private sector right across Australia. Our team is the strongest it has ever been and we have a great strategy for the next three years to further solidify our position in the market.
I have grown up in this business after moving from Germany ten years ago, leading our procurement practice, managing the Sydney office and implementing our market-based strategies as Head of Growth. Needless to say that I am passionate about the path we are on.
I am glad that Peter will continue as part of our leadership team and I am excited to chase the opportunities ahead of us together with our excellent team at Grosvenor.”
