08 Mar Jaguar Land Rover leader wins treat from Eze Group
An area manager at Jaguar Land Rover is the third to be treated by Eze Group’s recently launched initiative – a competition that recognises and rewards leaders and captains.
Work colleague Isabel Farrell nominated Gregg Niblett, from Castle Bromwich, to enjoy a pre-match meal in the Captain’s Club and watch the Blues versus Fulham game in the top seats in the Eze Group Stand.
Gregg was nominated for making a huge impact on the team since joining the company a year ago. In the short time he’s been there, morale on the shop floor has increased drastically and overall quality control has improved.
Isabel said: “We work in a very busy environment making sure customer’s cars are built on time and to a high standard. As you can probably imagine it can get quite stressful throughout the day.
“Since Gregg’s arrival he’s been such a calming influence. He keeps morale up in the team and is always going the extra mile to help everyone on the shop floor.
“He also does great community work within Jaguar Land Rover. Whether it’s inviting schools in for tours of the manufacturing facility, or doing charity work like helping out with local food banks.
“Last December Gregg arranged for a young boy who has a rare form of cancer to come into the factory where his dad works and pick up some Christmas presents – one of which was an electric F Type Jaguar toy. The whole shop floor contributed to the gifts but none of it would’ve been possible without Gregg arranging for his family to be there – it was a truly tearful moment.”
Diamond sponsors of Blues – Eze Group – recently launched the Captain’s Club initiative designed to recognise and reward those great captains who are leading from the front and inspiring their colleagues.
Gregg and his family all watched the game from the luxury seats in the Eze Group Stand, before enjoying a Blues banquet in the Captain’s Club.
Gregg said: “What a lovely treat that was, thank you very much. Unfortunately I don’t get to go to the Blues that often due to work commitments so to come today with the wife and kids was a real treat – not just for me but for them as well.
“I know we’ve been on a bad run the last few weeks but as soon as the goal went in it was like everything else had been forgotten.”
Eze Group Dominic O’Reilly said: “What Gregg has managed to achieve in his short time at Jaguar Land is truly commendable. We wish him all the best for the future and keep up the great work.”
The final score at St Andrew’s finished Blues 1 – Fulham 0.
Over the coming months Eze Group will ask fans to nominate sports captains, school captains, captains in the community and up and coming captains of industry.
