Asked what gets him out of bed in the mornings, Gareth replies:

Having worked in restructuring for over 18 years I have realised what I love most is helping directors, staff and stakeholders who find themselves in difficult situations. I am passionate about providing exceptional customer service and preserving employment wherever possible. Addressing underperformance and seeing the company come out the other side more profitable and with directors under less stress is what I strive to achieve every day.

Away from work, Gareth enjoys spending time with his family and friends, he is a keen skier, an increasingly amateur golfer and a reasonably regular cyclist.
