Managing Director Glenn Eastwood is a man who embodies everything that’s great about Birtwistles. Leading from the front with a relentless work ethic and desire to achieve. If it can be done, it will be done, and if it can’t… well Glenn will probably do it anyway.
He left school at 15 and stepped out of the school gates and straight into the meat industry. A decision that would take him on an incredible journey from life as a slaughter man to becoming the leader of this remarkable multi-million pound business.
When his alarm sounds at 3.30am every morning, Glenn is already looking forward to the challenge of the day ahead; it’s what he lives for. This isn’t just a job to Glenn. It’s his life and his home too, so if you pay us a visit, please make sure you wipe your feet!
He’s worked in every aspect of the business and that gives him a truly unique perspective that helps lead the company and allows us to deliver the level of quality and service that has become our trademark. He understands the demands of the business and is never afraid to go above and beyond for our customers; even jumping on the chopping block if the need arises, and there aren’t many catering butchers that can say their meat is cut by the MD himself!
“I like to set myself unachievable targets and then achieve every single one of them.”
Everybody here takes a great pride in what we do, and none more so than Glenn. He’s helped build a business upon the foundations of great quality, great service and great passion, and when you’re a part of something so special, you know that every order that leaves our factory is something to be proud of.
We’ve all worked hard to get here and Glenn knows this more than most.
But we don’t sit around celebrating the past; it’s all about the future and the next big challenge, and Glenn likes to aim high when it comes to setting himself and the business new targets.
