“Great people and culture, big incisive ideas and a commitment to creating real value through brilliant design and deep, purposeful insights. These are our key strengths.”
As CEO Gerard has helped Hassell become the creative, insight-led international practice it is today – a design firm positioned for the future.
His strategic leadership focuses Hassell on the creative and business opportunities inherent in the increasingly disrupted and changing design industry. Opportunities to deliver even greater value for our clients, to bring new creative skills and capabilities into the practice and to work with other creative and technology industry partners.
It’s all about brilliant design, incisive thinking, intelligent insights and the creation of places that people love – and the tangible social, cultural and economic value that’s delivered through that work.
Gerard is an internationally experienced leader in strategy, international expansion, agility and innovation – all vital to helping our practice thrive in a fast-changing landscape. He has worked as CEO, Board Director and Chairman of several private and publicly listed businesses globally. He is personally interested in city resilience and growth, behavioural economics, psychology, AI and ‘big data’ analytics.
