Gary is a proud British-New Zealander with 20+ years’ experience in Finance and IT, having lived and worked in Sydney, Hong Kong and London. He is married to a special needs teacher and they have two high energy boys, aged 10 and 11.
A keen sportsman, Gary is heavily involved in Rugby; coaching and managing a senior team and also working with fellow parents in coaching an Under 10 squad, all of which he finds highly enjoyable.
Standing for election in Cray Valley West, Gary is excited at the opportunity of working in the Ward with the excellent and highly experienced, current sitting Councillor, Judi Ellis, as well as local resident and 30-year London Fire Brigade veteran, Colin Hitchins. Together they have already been working on a plan for the Ward. CVW is an interesting mix of light industrial, residential and retail and as such presents a dynamic mix of issues, but importantly, it also presents a number of opportunities for residents and businesses.
At a Ward and Council level, Gary is keen to apply his positive and forward-looking attitude, and many years of experience to help build on the excellent work that is being done by the Conservatives in Bromley Council.
On a personal note, Gary is also happy to have the opportunity to follow in his father and grandfather’s footsteps in offering his services to his community.
