The team

Craig Bradshaw

Founder and CEO

Craig was born and raised in Dublin Ireland. Both his parents had separate successful businesses importing and wholesaling fashion accessories. The experience of watching the effort and commitment his parents put into their respective businesses instilled in Craig a strong work ethic, a passion for business and a driving force to replicate the success.
Craig attended both primary and secondary school in St Mary’s College, Dublin. He has a bachelor’s degree in Business & Marketing Studies from Portobello College Dublin.
After leaving Portobello College in 2001 Craig took the position of global export manager in a UK/Hong Kong Homewares and Novelty products company based in Hong Kong. After 6 months in the Hong Kong office Craig was asked to take the big step and move to Guangzhou to help establish their new Guangzhou office and showrooms. This proved to be a pivotal move and whereas initially reluctant it was the best career decision he ever made. After co-managing the new office for a year and traveling to visit many factories throughout China some in the remotest parts of the country, Craig decided to follow in his parents’ footsteps and take an even bigger step and establish CB Group Ltd.
Over the years we have manufactured indirectly for brands on behalf of World leading Companies such as Disney, Nine West, Hurley, Reebok, Calvin Klein, Levis and for indirectly retailers such as Wal Mart, Target, KOHLS, JC Penny, F21, Family Dollar to name but a few.
We believe what makes CB Group unique and one of the most important benefits to our customers is that we are their eyes and ears on the ground. The value and importance of this has never been as stark due to the terrible Pandemic which has swept the Globe in the last few years. This has resulted in buyers not been able to travel and therefore has put an enormous importance and value on our business relationships with our customers.
I’m very proud to be Irish, and I believe our business growth in many markets such as the US, Scandinavia and my home country Ireland is largely due to the trusted supplier status we have with our valued customers.
