The success of Rebound Electronics stems from the active leadership by a team who know the electronics business inside and out, and passionately believe that ‘Customer First’ is the only way to do business.
Simon Thake, our Group CEO, has been at the forefront of the electronic components supply industry for over 30 years. Firstly, honing his skills in purchasing and material management, before setting up Freeway Electronics in 1989 and leading it to a successful sale. His enthusiasm for the industry and passion for customer delivery, led him to co-found Rebound with Freeway director Steve Madley in 2003.
In his role as Group Sales Director, Steve has worldwide responsibility for the sales operations for the Rebound Group. His background in purchasing and materials management, means that he understands what customers need and what they value. He ensures that this knowledge is at the heart of how Rebound Electronics operates, guaranteeing positive customer experiences.
Rebound Group is underpinned by strong financial management provided by Chief Finance Officer, Peter Griffith-Jones. Peter’s extensive experience in the technology sector, including electronic component distribution, has helped him manage the Group’s steady and sustainable growth to €165m turnover (2018).
Visionary and entrepreneurial, the Board not only lead by example but are highly visible within the organisation, both to the Rebound Electronics’ team and our customers. They continually listen to customers, adapting to prevent supply chain problems and offering new services to help them operate their businesses more efficiently.
Creating a proactive team of people who are as focused and committed to customer delivery as they are, is vital to Simon, Steve and Peter. Our continued success is built on the quality of our people, all of whom are experienced, professional, reliable, and ultimately love what they do. We work hard to recruit the right people, develop their skills and empower them to deliver the best possible customer service. Encouraging and supporting leadership from within the Rebound team ensures that our business is always leading the way.
