Gary has been fortunate enough to build 30 years of business experience in a way that one may say is “not textbook”. Having worked for small family businesses in retailing, both as an entrepreneur and general manager, and in the advertising industry in management positions, he joined Mars Australia in 1999.
Over his nearly twenty years at Mars, Gary held numerous management positions in both the Petcare and Confectionery businesses, and was a key player in transforming the Mars Chocolate Australia business into a strong sustainable business unit.
In 2016, Gary relocated with his family to the Netherlands to lead Mars ITR, a business in one of the most unique retail environments in the world. Driven by delivering growth we can be proud of, he has a strong passion for developing people and categories and has a firm belief that mutuality is imperative for business success.
