The Birmingham Business School Advisory Board Annual Guest Lecture
John Neill CBE, Chairman and CEO, The Unipart Group 

The Unipart Group is a £1 billion turnover manufacturer, logistics services firm and consultancy business. What makes its story so compelling is that it’s one of Britain’s largest employee-owned companies, with the majority of shares being held by its 10,000 employees around the world.

The Unipart story begins in the mid 70's building a foundation for success despite a deeply troubled parent company and then creating the conditions for a successful buy-out in 1987. John Neill led this buy-out determined to create a world class British company that would become a model for customer and employee engagement.

John is the Chairman and Group Chief Executive of the Unipart Group of Companies. He is a Non-executive Director of Rolls Royce, a member of the Council and Board of Business in the Community, and Vice President of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. He was formerly a Director of the Bank of England and a non-executive Director of the Royal Mail and Charter International plc. He was awarded a CBE in June 1994. He’s renowned for turning Unipart around from a firm of 2000 employees to 10,000 and his regular media commentary, particularly for stating in The Guardian and The Independent that Unipart could turn-around The NHS.

John will tell the Unipart Story and how The Unipart Way has led the firm to becoming one of Britain’s largest independent companies.
