Edinburgh’s Brian Forsyth is delighted to have been offered the chance to head up the capital’s flagship GAP building materials Depot - but it’s not the only title he has his sights on.
Scottish amateur boxing champ Brian is counting down to March 11 when he’ll take on Rhys Pegan for the vacant Scottish Super-Middleweight crown at Meadowbank Stadium.
Brian recently took over as the Manager of GAP’s Leith-based Depot, and brought with him experience in the roofing industry and with equipment hire groups Speedy and HSS.
GAP is one of Britain’s biggest privately-owned manufacturers of PVC-U building materials and has 45 Depots across the UK. Although Brian is the latest member of the group’s 670-strong workforce, he’s no stranger to the area or to the local builders, roofers and window fitters upon whom he’ll be relying to help him keep the Depot on its steep growth curve.
Commenting on his new role, Brian said: “I just want to say a huge thank you to GAP for believing in me and making me feel so welcome since I started at the Edinburgh Depot. I already feel part of the team and I know everyone’s right behind me both at work and when I climb into the ring for my first pro title fight.”
Simon Bird, GAPs Joint Founder added: “We’re delighted to welcome Brian to GAP; who clearly shares our enthusiasm and commitment to taking our Edinburgh Depot to the next level. It’s also great that we’re able to support him in his up and coming title bout, in which we wish him the best of luck”.
