Majestic Wine’s Chief Executive, John Colley, has won a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award honouring the Top CEOs in 2021. Glassdoor, the worldwide leader in insights about jobs and companies, released its annual award recognising the Top CEOs, which highlights top leaders that employees love working for in countries throughout North America and parts of Europe.
Among chief executives recognised by employees in the UK, John received an impressive approval rating based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews Majestic Wine employees shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year.
“I am delighted to be recognised as one of the UK’s top CEOs, but I am under no illusions that this represents an individual award. The last 18 months have been incredibly tough for all of us, and at Majestic it has coincided with a period of unprecedented transformation and change too since our change in ownership. I am proud to lead such as passionate, agile and much-loved company – and I know we are all just going to get stronger and stronger.” said winning company CEO.
“Company leaders around the world felt the ground shake as COVID-19 threatened the health, safety and wellbeing of employees and laid a new foundation for the future of work,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor chief executive officer. “Through a challenging year, it’s inspiring to see Top CEOs who, according to their employees, adapted to change, redefined visions and led transparently while putting the health and safety of employees at the forefront. I extend my sincerest congratulations to this year’s exceptional Employees’ Choice Award winners.”
