After a degree in Business Studies, John qualified as an accountant working in professional practice.
Preferring to make things, and because his “audit experience would be good for software testing”, John switched to a career in bespoke business systems implementation. Becoming a client champion in enterprise software testing and quality assurance, John worked as a contractor for over 17 years, mainly within the London Capital Markets, Investment Management, and Financial Services areas.
That was until a very good friend said “ John, you need find a career to grow into” ; when another introduced him to Recruitment ; 16 years later John is thrilled to be still growing in this remarkable industry ; where we enable people and companies to achieve their dreams and goals ; both within Hanson Regan and far beyond.
Gabriel’s passion and enthusiasm for the business of recruitment led him to establish Hanson Regan with his brother John in August 2006.
Moving to London in the mid 80’s, Gabriel first worked in construction until an old Irish friend, who noticed his ability to connect with people, suggested he had the ideal persona to make the transition into sales.
Following his closest friend's advice, Gabriel paved a sales career in the newly created Cable industry, the forefather of today’s digital revolution.
Gabriel soon found success in his new sales environment, winning recognition for his performance with NYNEX in his very first week. Many accolades and achievements followed, which saw Gabriel win the global Presidents Award on two occasions and being invited to attend the Presidents’ Awards celebrations in Naples, Florida and Bermuda.
After some five years, he again followed his Irish friend, who had moved into a Recruitment Consultant role. Through his determination and dedication, Gabriel forged a successful career in recruitment over the next 2 decades.
