Gareth Hector
From my first agency position at the beginning of my career I have gone on to build and develop teams whilst delivering insight into business marketing and communications at national and international levels.

Along the way I’ve gained a wealth of experience across the creative spectrum and now share these through my work with Jefferson and We Are Hector, which focuses on; Global Executive Search, Recruitment, Merger & Acquisitions, Venture Capital, and Creative Commercial Photography, respectively.My work in the last twelve months with Ethical Performance has also opened up a new perspective on sustainable business and how brands have a huge responsibility in this respect.

I’ve worked for award winning media businesses and delivered record revenues and profits through nurturing talent and building careers. As a change manager, identifying the core qualities and motivation in talented media and creative professionals is both a talent and a passion.

I value all experience and I love variety. I can drive a fork lift truck, find and deliver talent, build a website, lay a flat roof, carry out due diligence, take amazing photographs of pizzas, deliver you a cocktail to die for, build a marketing campaign, copyright, train and teach.
