GripHero, the provider of fuel-nozzle mounted hand-protection dispensers, has appointed former BP and ADNOC senior executive John Carey as Chairman. The move comes as GripHero looks to meet increased demand for its hand-protection solution at forecourts and fuel stations globally.

In 2020, GripHero has experienced triple-digit sales growth. New supply agreements have made its core hand-protection products available to motorists on four continents, and continued expansion in these markets is expected before the end of 2020, as well as growth into a fifth continent.

“John Carey brings more than 30 years of downstream experience in the US, Europe and the Middle East, which will prove invaluable as we look to drive further growth and develop new product lines in the future,” commented GripHero’s Founder and CEO, Oli Yeo.

“Oli is a first-class engineer who’s built an impressive business that is primed for further growth, particularly given increasing expectations around safety and hygiene in the COVID-19 era,” John Carey, GripHero’s new Chairman said.

John Carey was formerly a CEO of various BP fuel retail, B2B, refining and lubricants businesses in the US and Europe, before joining ADNOC Distribution.
