"It’s a pleasure to come to work each day, largely due to the exceptional teams I have the pleasure of collaborating with and the specialist sectors we have the privilege to support.”

Gary’s career path took an unexpected turn when he transitioned into recruitment after a serious injury prematurely ended his professional football career. Reflecting on the career change, Gary recognises that the discipline and mental toughness instilled in him during his time in sports provided the solid foundation for success in the recruitment industry.

After 10 years with Hamptons Gary has taken a sideways step and is now serving as CEO of Step Into Teaching, Hamptons sister company. Gary still remains involved in the day-to-day operations of Hamptons, overseeing the administration and finance teams. He also continues to play a crucial role in supporting Hamptons’ ongoing success at board level, offering strategic and tactical guidance.

Interesting facts:

Gary fully recovered from a sleepwalking accident at the age of 21, where he fell 44 feet and broke his back.
In 2007, Gary was honoured with the FA Cup Player of the Round Award, which he received from Prince William personally.
