To round off each issue, we ask our contributing business leaders for their views on the same question: “What new ideas in your industry excite you?”

Joffrey Thelliez, Head of Business Development, Kreiss

“Road transport is following the world, and every day is new and exciting. It is up to all of us to make it better, with more efficiency, new technologies, and more green transport solutions.”  

Gavin Smith, Managing Director, Pizza Pilgrims

“Following the significant shift the COVID-19 pandemic caused in hospitality, I see more educated and demanding guests shaping how we will serve them. Team members also demand more and work differently, and Pizza Pilgrims will lead in that space.  

“I also think the role of tech and artificial intelligence (AI) will be significant in enabling businesses such as ours to stay ahead of the curve. From digital loyalty and payment technology to the use of vertical farming in London, we have many innovations we are excited about that are adding value to our already exceptional business.”  

Gunnar Egill Sigurðsson, CEO, Samkaup

“We are very interested in automating our processes to create more valuable jobs within the food retail sector and e-commerce in the coming years.” 

Tanya Miliskovik, Managing Director, Kromberg & Schubert

“The automotive industry is undoubtedly coming out of one of the most challenging periods in history. We are also living in exciting times with the increased adoption of electric vehicles (EVs), more car manufacturers introducing Internet of Things (IoT) features, the development of hydrogen-powered cars, and more. 

“There are also new players on the global scene. Chinese and Indian car makers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have begun marketing their products overseas in the EU, where long-standing brands are losing market share.  

“Additionally, in the midst of these shifts, vehicle ownership models are changing. Millennial consumers have a diminished interest in vehicle leasing or ownership, but show a much greater willingness to utilise ride-share services and use more electric scooters and bicycles.”
