One-on-One with Jeff Wilson

What is your long-term vision for AIB International, and how does your personal business philosophy play into that vision?

My long-term vision is for AIB International to continue growing our global food safety services. My personal business philosophy is to set clear objectives for our operations to facilitate our global journey and provide trusted solutions for our clients to exceed their own food safety goals.

How do you describe your leadership style and personal business philosophy?

My leadership style reflects my personal learning and experiences gained throughout my food safety career. I pride myself in being open, honest, accountable, and, above all, a good listener and enabler. I strive to lead by example, no matter what the situation.

How do you show leadership outside the office?

I am actively involved with business-related organizations such as the RSHT and BPCA. On a personal level, I am currently involved with a local community group for a home neighborhood watch scheme.

What do you do when you are not working?

I enjoy a wide variety of music, both listening and playing. Drumming was a passion of mine, but now strumming the occasional guitar chord is the perfect way to relax. Anything creative that has an artistic element! I enjoy restoration work and the satisfaction of bringing something old back to life and giving it a second chance to live another day. On the exercise side, jogging and walking are the two activities that you can pack into your suitcase!
