Gary’s banking career spanned 34 years. A journey that started in general banking as a youngster and progressing to senior management positions with one of the top banks in South Africa. This long career saw Gary gain knowledge and experience in many facets of banking but it was as a leader of large teams that Gary stood out. Gary put these leadership skills to good use – teams and individuals that Gary led were acknowledged with numerous rewards of excellence over the years. Good technical skills (Gary has a Bachelor of Accounting Science degree and a CAIB (SA) qualification) complement his leadership qualities.
In 2016 an opportunity to step away from the corporate rat race was too tempting to resist and Gary formed Silent Partners with friend and longtime colleague, Brian Woodland. Gary brings professionalism, experience and a common sense approach to business and he has no doubt that he can add significant value to clients that engage him.
Gary is a family man and has been married to Kathy for over 30 years. They have 2 adult sons. Interests include mountain biking, golf and listening to rock music.
