“The road to success is always under construction” but, to be successful, you must want to be on the journey and with support around you to help with your travels.”
Working with RTC
Consultant and Executive Coach working occasionally with RTC, Gordon brings over 35 years of experience working in professional services with more than 10 of those as CEO or Chairman. Gordon also has further extensive board level experience from his Chair role at Tennis Scotland and Trustee Director with CIHT.
Background and Industry Experience
Worked for most of his professional career in the engineering sector specialising in transport and transport planning and developed a deep understanding of working with people. Unlike some leaders, Gordon believes that focussing on the people in business will deliver strong financial performance, and the more that you focus on your people the stronger that performance will be. Gordon believes in the importance of building winning organisations through empowered people.
Qualifications and Training
Qualified initially in Civil Engineering and became a Chartered Engineer, Gordon then pursued business qualifications to equip him for senior Board positions. He is a Chartered Director and Fellow of the IoD. Towards the end of his CEO role in 2016, Gordon then embarked on coaching qualifications to help support post-CEO coaching activities either independently or with brands already established in the industry including RTC.
Life Outside RTC
Gordon is a keen and active practitioner in sport and exercise. He is married to Lynne, who shares those interests. They have two married sons living in the London area and two grandsons. Family, sport and holidays are the main outlets for all family members.
