31.03.23 DIOLCH Gwyn

Today marks the last day of Gwyn Roberts’ reign as the company’s Chief Executive.

Gwyn was the first (and only) member of staff when the company was formed as Cwmni Tref Caernarfon on Palace Street back in 1992.

31 years later, Gwyn has led, inspired and developed the company from what was initially a town development trust into one of Wales’ largest social enterprises and key employer in the area. The company’s roots remain in the community – owning over 20 properties within the town (shops/offices/cafes/salons/houses and flats), responsible for the award-winning Galeri creative enterprise centre on Victoria Dock and also managing the Cei Llechi regeneration project – now home to different makers/manufacturers.

“As a board, we cannot thank Gwyn enough for leading the company over the last 30 years. When the company was formed in 1992, who could imagine the significant contribution that has been made to the town economically and culturally. The success and development of the company over three decades is one that is seen as a unique and innovative. We are so fortunate to have had Gwyn leading the company from the very start and turning ideas into reality. His vision, implementation, passion and perseverance has enabled the company to grow from strength to strength. I’m sure the whole community would like to thank Gwyn for his commitment and work. Gwyn can take pride in the achievements of Cwmni Tref Caernarfon and Galeri Caernarfon Cyf over the years. His vision is visible in Caernarfon today. The board look forward to continuing Galeri Caernarfon’s pioneering work with Gwyn, in his new role as Development Director alongside Steffan Thomas as the new Chief Executive.” Iestyn Harris, Galeri Caernarfon Cyf Chair

On behalf of the staff and board members (past and present), tenants and resident companies, audiences, customers and everyone else who have benefited from Galeri Caernarfon’s Work – DIOLCH Gwyn.
