Grant is an ‘IWC Schaffhausen (IWC) Co-Founder’ of 9byIWC in conjunction with Adam Woodall and holds the role of Brand Director for IWC in the UK. After finalising his studies at Bournemouth University, Grant entered the automotive business working for BMW Group at their UK HQ. In 2004 he moved to Rolls-Royce Motor Cars HQ in Goodwood and held various roles, notably General Manager Sales and Marketing for Western Europe and Head of Retail Experience as part of the Groups Future Retail strategy.
In October 2019 Grant pivoted from the luxury automotive industry to pursue his passion for Horology by joining the IWC family. Grant’s fascination for mechanical watches accelerated in 2008 following the exposure he had to this World during the multiple trips he took to Zurich, Geneva and Monaco in his role within the automotive business. Provenance, craftsmanship and mechanical innovation are the facets of the watch industry that excite Grant the most.
Within Grant’s role as an ‘IWC Schaffhausen Co-Founder of 9byIWC’, he will be offering support and mentorship to the Founding Member Students, and new members alike, to develop the reach of 9byIWC and ensure that the student members are able to realise their passion for watches and beyond through the 9byIWC project.
