Gary graduated in Applied Biology from his home town of Liverpool. After several direction-finding jobs, he was then taken on by billett and co. – one of the UK’s first media independents – where he focused on TV trading.
He moved to Chris Ingram and Associates (now MediaEdge: CIA) which then merged with billetts. Following that, Gary moved to the full service agency GGK before becoming a partner at Frontline Media.
Having tired of the agency media world, he joined the international media department of United International Pictures and moved across to Paramount Pictures International (when UIP demerged) where he is a senior director in the international media department.
Gary is married to an interior designer and they have a 16 year old daughter.
