Gavin is an accomplished executive and leadership professional with 25 years’ experience both locally and abroad spanning an array of industries including The Australian Defence Force, Australian Retail and Professional Consulting.
Initially kick starting his early leadership career in the Royal Australia Airforce holding intelligence and surveillance roles, Gavin made the move into retail and found his passion! Over the following 18 years, he worked with several well-known household names in the Australian retail space where he honed his craft working in finance and accounting divisions holding senior strategy, CFO and COO positions within rapid high growth, turnaround, private equity, and his personal favourite, $50m to $250m annual t/o family owned and operated businesses.
Finding his passion for leading high performing teams in the notoriously ruthless fast fashion industry, Gavin moved into Company General Manager and Deputy CEO roles where he has been responsible for multimillion-dollar investments in large scale complex projects including business and digital transformations, overhaul of complex product & merchandise strategies, leading organisations through international expansion, & of course leading their 2,000+ strong teams through significant change.
After close to 20 years in retail, Gavin shifted gears to lead a national retail transformation consultancy as their General Manager specialising in helping leadership teams navigate and successfully implement large scale business transformation by focusing on people, process, and technology.
He fully appreciates the complex environment that executives are faced with, the speed at which executives are required to operate, the results they need to deliver, but most importantly, the quality of leadership that is now (and should be) expected of themselves, by their teams, and their organisations. He thrives on building powerful and energising relationships with fellow executives that are unwaveringly passionate about making an impact and delivering value – this is when Gavin is at his best.
Gavin has joined EPP in the quest to shift our clients and their organisations from good to great, and through our collective experience drawn from such a wonderful array of amazing leaders, to drive tangible and sustainable results.
He is a qualified accountant, holds an MBA, a Bachelor of Information Technology and certifications from the Governance Institute of Australia and the Defence Force. Outside of work Gavin is a keen amateur accordionist, loves a good game of squash and making curry!Let’s Talk
