Gary is the Founder and Director of The CT Connections Travel Group, one of Australia’s largest independently owned travel management organisations. Upon completing his studies at Swinburne University, he pursued a career in chartered accountancy and worked in senior finance positions across industries.
In early 2000, Gary founded Executive Edge Travel marking an unconventional foray into the travel management industry. His focus has always been on providing strategic direction for the company and in 2010 founded CT Connections Pty Ltd. In 2013, the Totem Group was acquired giving the group capability across all facets of travel including: Corporate Travel, Luxury Leisure / Personal travel and the specialist groups, conference and incentive travel markets. The 3 core operational brands of the group were all merged in 2016 forming what is today known as The CT Connections Travel Group.
Gary is also one of the co-founding members of CT Partners, Australia’s largest independent travel agency consortia, where he still serves as a Board member.
An avid sports nerd, Gary’s life and business values are: bias for action, passion, teamwork and respect. He brings this to his every endeavour and lives by the company motto ‘Every Connection Counts’ – which in essence means deliver value at every opportunity.
