Gary joined us off the back of a successful banking career spanning 32 years including 26 years working closely with Commercial clients. During his time at Lloyds Bank, he over-saw and supported over 100 Private Equity backed businesses across the UK, with sales of £10m+ operating across a range of sectors; from Fertility Clinics to IT Support companies; Electronics Retailers to Travel Operators; Builders Merchants to Hair Straighteners.
His close involvement with Executive Management Teams and their PE investors gave him great insight into the plans and processes in making businesses more efficient and fit for growth, whilst at the same time, providing a trusted banking relationship hand to his many business customers.
Recognised by work colleagues and customers alike for his down to earth approach and ability to ask the difficult questions, Gary acquired a few grey hairs whilst directly supporting businesses through and beyond the Financial Crash of 2007 where the impact on his customers (and his own employer) needed close oversight. His last 3 years at Lloyds saw him appointed as Yorkshire’s main Credit Sanctioner in the Bank’s Mid-Markets Commercial team, before moving into business consultancy in 2019.
With an ingrained desire to see businesses succeed and flourish through great systems, data excellence and appropriate and deliverable strategies, Gary is keen to support small business owners in the Yorkshire Region in achieving their dreams and aspirations and is ready to hear from you!
