Hi, I’m Gav, a Commercial Director at InSites Consulting, Manchester office, UK, since 2007. ​

​I’m an experienced insight strategist, aiming since 2001 to help global and local brands driving growth opportunity through a rich understanding of people. Over the years I’ve worked across different sectors, but my core expertise lies in supporting food & drink, FMCG, and media & entertainment brands such as Diageo, Mondelez, Kellogg’s and PlayStation with agile innovation, communication development, brand activation and shopper marketing. ​

​I’ve got bags of imagination and enthusiasm to try new things, coupled with commercial pragmatism to ensure we meet or exceed expectation and activate/ socialise insight within organisations. I’m driven by curiosity, creativity, focus under pressure and am especially interested in the changing relationship and behaviours between people, trends and technology. ​

​Outside of work, I love to spend time with my family, exploring life through the lens of an imaginative kid – building Lego, crafting stories/ imaginative worlds, playing football and just being silly! I’ve also got a particular passion for music and food discovery, messing around on my bass guitar/ with synthesizers and going to lots of gigs/ festivals and restaurants! ​
