Gary Gill

Associate Director

Gary is the youngest member of the team at 36 years old, but is adamant he doesn't look a day older than 35. He has 13 years of sales experience, 9 of which have been in Business Development Consultancies. When Gary's not engaged in client meetings or surgically attached to his phone, he's likely being utilised as a climbing frame by his two young daughters, and occasionally the cat.

Alex prides himself on understanding what his client’s needs and challenges are and always strives to meet their objectives. As a keen fitness enthusiast and foodie Alex can either be found in the gym, eating mountains of food or by the pool with an ultra-tight pair of shorts on. He’s also a seasoned traveller having visited over 30 countries, he loves experiencing new cultures, meeting new people and sampling the local cuisine.
