Global ADT - 1st Edition 2018

Inside Track

It gives me great pleasure that one of my first tasks as Group CEO, having been recently appointed on 1 June 2018, is to write this message to you, our customers.

Firstly, I congratulate Gary Bell on his ‘retirement’ following an exceptional 48 years of service with the company, 34 years of which as Group CEO. Gary will still be involved in the business as Chairman of the Board and I know he is looking forward to spending time with our customers and dealers around the world in his new role.

I would also like to take the opportunity to thank him for the trust that has been bestowed on me and for his mentorship over the past 11 years that I have been with the company. His passion and energy for the business has been contagious and his empathy towards people sets him apart.

While he has left big shoes to fill, there is no doubt that the Bell executive team and I are fully committed to building on the Bell legacy that has been created by the Bell family over the generations. Part of the Bell appeal is our family culture, which we will vigorously defend and protect along with the values that are contained in our 1-Bell philosophy.

We, at Bell, look forward to working with each of you and continuing to build our relationships as we write the next chapter of the Bell history over the years to come.

Thank you for your support!


Leon Goosen
Group Chief Executive Officer
