Gareth Roberts

“I understand the pressures and sense of isolation you can experience in running a small to medium sized business. I have a passion for helping people develop as leaders and seeing the impact on the growth and profitability of their business”

Gareth does not come from the traditional large corporate environment and in many regards that is what makes him so valuable and unique as a business advisor. He has seen what it is like at the coal-face of a small and growing family owned business. He’s experienced good times but also plenty of challenges. Most importantly along his journey  he has developed a strong desire to help people to succeed and to provide guidance along the way to help them be the very best version of themselves.

Gareth is an enthusiastic and experienced business leader whose career has given him a fantastic understanding of what it requires to succeed in an SME environment. Having garduated from De Montford University, in the last two decades, Gareth has built a £25M turnover company and having started with only a handful of people around him, now employs more than 200 in a diverse business across print, design, and fulfilment operations.

Gareth enjoys stimulating sales and closing business, but also seeking efficiencies in manufacturing environments and driving good purchasing practice. When it comes to the sometimes turbulent family ownership dynamic, his empathy combined with an irreverent sense of humour makes plotting a successful course seem surmountable.  

Whilst he has spent 25 years living in the south, Gareth is a geordie at heart and it is this upbringing that makes him easy to get along with. As a successful CEO and business advisor he demonstrates a sense of calmness that those around him find reassuring.  A big believer in seeking to combine the professionalism, perceived to be the hallmark of larger companies, with the warmth of a family business, his conduct is inspiring to those around him.

Gareth’s experience and demonstrable performance will be of interest to any business owner or Director looking to grow their business, as will the understanding and guidance he can offer in terms of building teams and developing better operational structures in a growing business.

Perhaps more importantly Gareth’s way of being sets him apart from many others with his experience. He is able to impart advice whilst building sustainable relationships that support business growth.
