Transformation, invigoration, focus, support, delivery. These are the key words which describe my career. Often I have been involved in rebuilding or reorganising a function, be it Engineering or Product Management or Sales. I have built successful teams delivering products to tight deadlines, streamlined product lines and developed new business. In my experience it’s all about customers!
I have worked in Mergers and Aquisitions (M&A), turn-round situations, start-ups, and accelerating and re-building product teams across digital TV, semi-conductors, and most recently environmental (water) sensors where the ability to offer a fresh lens to a problem, whether internal or external, can be used to maximise an opportunity to drive a business and its board forward.
In my last engagement I was recruited to relaunch the Engineering department after a period of hiatus. Consequently, I have just completed the development of a new sensor product in 8 months. Accomplished by bringing in key talent and sub-contract expertise together with changing behaviours inside the company to drive towards the medium- and long-term aspirations of the board.
No stranger to the day-to-day challenges of a business I am equally well versed in being able to take an outside/in view of a business and advise on streamlining its sales and engagement strategies to maximise opportunities.
Gary's Career History
Mainstream Measurements Ltd
September 2021 - Ongoing
Leaders in open channel flow measurement, using ultrasonic technology. The company is now concerned with research, development and design of instrumentation with a heavy emphasis on embedded micro-processors. Areas which needed my involvement included roadmap, marketing and partner relations. Most critical however was the development of a next generation product to a very fast timescale, avoiding silicon shortage issues and the danger of running out of stock.

I endorse Gary as an individual I have worked with over the years in a professional capacity. In all instances Gary has been in a leadership role and responsible for steering the direction of a business to success. Our main encounters came from his role as VP for a small start-up organisation. Over this time it was great to see Gary lead from both a technical and non-technical perspective. Gary demonstrates a perfect mix of being strategic, reasoned and forward thinking in his approach. My own interactions with Gary centred around the people aspect of the business and he demonstrated real understanding of how to motivate and inspire those around him. I feel that Gary has a lot to add to any organisation.
