Founded by Sir Peter Rigby in 1975, the Rigby Group is no ordinary family business. The group has expanded year on year and today has 8,500 employees across a portfolio of six diverse, independent divisions, which together generate revenues of more than £3 billion.
A critical ingredient of the company’s success, the Rigby Group prides itself on promoting family values, instilling the notion that empathy and integrity are vital to conducting good business. A focus on both corporate as well as individual responsibility is also key.
Steve is now Co-CEO alongside his brother and following in the steps of their father, he has big shoes to fill. Steve is thriving in the role and with a determination and reputation as a dynamic and visionary entrepreneur, Steve has contributed significantly to the business’ success over the past two decades, having been determined to become an intuitive, successful and ambitious entrepreneur in his own right first.
An inspirational lead and next generation member, Steve has made it his mission to ensure that the family values his father carved into the business in 1975 are still present today, and that they will continue to be for years to come.
Steve is an inspirational leader but also recognises the importance of being surrounded by the right people and empowering them to make decisions. He cultivates a widespread sense of responsibility enabling leaders within the group to be the absolute best that they can be.
Steve’s recipe for success is hard work, brave but well-informed decision making, empowering and inspiring others, fostering innovation and unwavering customer focus, whilst supporting his local business community and remaining true to the company'[s family roots.
Steve is an incredible family business leader and fully deserving of his place in the Family Business Top 100.
