Gerard joined Embridge Consulting as Non-Executive Director in 2021, adding meaningful insight to the Board with his knowledge, skills, and experience.
Following a Business Degree at The Management Centre, Bradford, Gerard qualified as a Chartered Accountant with PWC before moving to Grant Thornton to specialise in insolvency. After 2 years, he invested in a struggling manufacturing company to lead a successful turnaround, following which he sold his interest, and then invested in a specialist lighting manufacturer, Arcadia Products plc. Arcadia became a leading brand in over 30 countries, serving the niche market for aquarium and reptile hobbyists. In 2017 Gerard sold the business, but has continued to work as a financially orientated business consultant.
