Matt Lloyd Leaves GDS

UK – Well-known industry figure, Matt Lloyd, is to leave his role at Bristol-based technology company GDS after 14 years service. Following a restructuring of the company, the popular co-founder and former managing director had been working in a consultancy role but a change in direction, following the sale of key brands including ArcSystem to ETC, led GDS to terminate the arrangement.

Having gained a wealth of experience and know-how during his time at GDS and Stage Electrics, Matt, vice-chairman of PLASA, will continue to advance the gb4u consultancy he launched in September 2018. gb4u works with a range of businesses, from start-ups to established operations, to advise on and assist with the promotion of strategies for growth and development. Matt is also discussing a number of other opportunities with businesses keen to take advantage of his wide-ranging skills and industry experience.

Matt Lloyd is clearly excited about the future: “I’ve had 14 amazing years at GDS, a company which began for me as an idea in the middle of The Panama Canal, during a round the world yacht race! My experiences have been entirely positive and being immersed in helping to create, develop and deliver cutting-edge products as part of such a fantastic team has been a joy. I will take forward so many invaluable lessons into the next chapter of my career. The freedom to operate across different sectors of industry is something I’m relishing and I’m very much up for the challenge. I’m confident that gb4u will continue to grow as a productive source of support for a wide range of businesses, fostering enterprise and helping to achieve great commercial success.”
