Gary Buxton

Gary has set up an organisation from scratch and grown it to employ over 1,500 people giving him first hand insight into the highs and lows of being an entrepreneur.  

He’s set up a new division in an international business and mobilised complex multi-million pound contracts which have involved thousands of staff and coordinating the activity of over thirty supply chain organisations. Through these experiences he’s learnt to recognise the importance of leading beyond his authority and developing senior leaders and technical experts to deliver market leading performance.

He is a Clore Social Leadership Fellow in recognition for his work in the social impact sector and was awarded an MBE by HM Queen Elizabeth II in 2014 for Services to the Young People of England.  He is a Non Exec Director & Governor of the University of Manchester and supports the strategy and governance of the largest Russell Group University, turning over £1bn with 12k staff and over 40k students, which is a huge privilege.

Gary is a qualified executive coach which builds on his degree in psychology, and is qualified to deliver psychometrics in both ability and personality. He offers a comprehensive coaching experience for people looking to deliver their best in life and work. He loves the outdoors, walking, camping and taking adventures in a camper van, so much so he is also a co-owner of Manchester Camper Hire. Sometimes combining the two ventures for leadership/coaching retreats.

“Our work with Mezzana has really energised the senior team, driving increased collaboration and improving the speed and quality of our decision making.”
