Gerard is a focused, energetic entrepreneur with a results driven, positive perspective. His business experience in growing companies to become nationally and internationally recognized are success stories. He worked for several large corporations over the course of his career and then started his own company in 2005.
Gerard has had volunteer board/committee experience with an American based international truck parts association for over 8 years, as vice chair for two years and chairman for two years.
The commitment to Salt Spring Island began in the early 90s when his family first moved to the island. A job transfer meant a move away, but the desire to someday return stayed strong. Slowly transitioned back to the island after purchasing a home a few years ago, and now living here full time.
With a results driven viewpoint, Gerard hopes to bring his skills to help Salt Spring become stronger, with a view of creating an economy that will continue to grow in keeping with the values and essence of what Salt Spring is about.
