The headline speaker for this year's Burton & District Chamber of Commerce Annual Celebration Lunch on Wednesday 6th May is Gary Norton. Gary is the Site Leader at Amazon’s Rugeley fulfilment centre – a huge facility the size of ten football pitches with approximately 1,000 employees. The centre carries millions of items ranging from cosmetics through to toys and games and deals with customer orders every minute of almost every day (they don’t work Christmas Day and New Year’s Day!)
Gary’s in his fifth year with Amazon, but has worked for a number of other big-name companies across a variety of industries including the Coors brewery here in Burton – his home town. Outside of work, he’s also been involved with Gresley FC for 20 years, from player through to manager and is now one of the club’s directors.
The annual celebration held at Burton Albion Football Club, is a must-attend event on the business networking calendar, with non-members and members very welcome.
