Gavin’s Story – CEO

4th Oct 2018 | By Leicester Services Partnership

Hello!  My name is Gavin Brown and I am the new Chief Executive Officer of Leicester Services Partnership-LSP.

I started work here on the 3rd September and have just completed my first month at the University of Leicester.

We have a very exciting future ahead as LSP continues to form as a new business and continues to deliver excellent services to staff, students and visitors.

My plans are to develop a five-year strategy in order to shape our business and deliver clear measures of success to ensure a sustainable future.

A little background information about me:

I have worked at a senior level in higher education for nearly 20 years and fully understand the challenges of operating a commercial business whilst valuing and balancing the core activities of a University and a Students’ Union.

I am a non-executive Director and Board Member of The University Caterers Organisation – TUCO. My role includes chairing the research group and I am also a member of the Finance Audit Committee ensuring compliance and governance and a member of the Sustainability Board. 

I have a proven track record of moving a business operating at a deficit to one that operates at a profit without having a negative impact on the customer experience.

I look forward to building a business we will all be proud of for many years to come.
