A message from

Sally Brown gdb General Manager

Sally Brown gdb General Manager

When I joined Gatwick Diamond Business back in 2011 as the third gdb team member, gdb was already doing a great job of supporting the vibrant and rapidly growing business community.


Over the years we have grown to a team of 6 and built on that sense of community, supported by members of a richly experienced Board, Council and wonderful team of gdb Ambassadors.


We have seen a marked improvement in the diversity of businesses and businesspeople engaging through their membership, with a more varied mix across sectors and sizes taking advantage of the support available and the positive learning, sharing and profile-raising opportunities.


With its business-friendly reputation, our community continues to go from strength to strength, and today we are proud to highlight the region’s business achievements, promoting business opportunities for gdb members and working closely with partner organisations and key stakeholders, to encourage collaboration, growth and inward investment across the Gatwick Diamond region.


If you are a business owner, manager or leader looking for better ways to engage locally, I would encourage you to get in touch.  The gdb Team, our Board, Council members and gdb Ambassadors are all super friendly and ready to answer any questions you may have.


Go on, reach out!  You’ll be so glad you did!
