Geoff Edwards

Head of Operations, B&W Group Ltd

Biography

At present I am Chief Operating Officer at B&W Group Ltd, an international manufacturer and distributor of high-end loudspeakers and related audio equipment in over sixty countries.

My role involves the strategic direction of the Group’s finances and the over seeing of the operational aspects of the Group’s manufacturing, procurement and logistic operations in the UK, China and Germany.

Prior to this, I had been an Accountant/ Business Advisor in practice for more than twenty years. As an economics graduate from Southampton University, I qualified with Price Waterhouse before joining Grant Thornton; where as a partner for the last thirteen years I advised a wide range of operations, on financial, tax, strategic and business matters.

Married to Susan with two sons at University and when work and family commitments permit I combine a passion for the Theatre and Art galleries with the enjoyment of a good rugby match.
