Kevin Gaskell is a renowned business leader who led several iconic brands to unprecedented levels of success. He is a serial entrepreneur and world class team builder.

As a CEO, Chairman and Founder Gaskell has enjoyed success in several sectors including automotive, data, technology, manufacturing, brand marketing and professional services. He has repeatedly led teams to achieve extraordinary performance in companies ranging from 7 to 7,000 employees. One of his companies was recognised as the best private equity investment of the year, another nominated as the World’s 7th most innovative business.

Leading the turnaround of Porsche UK from close to bankruptcy to market leader saw Gaskell, at the age of 32, recognised as one of the most capable leaders of his generation. He consolidated that recognition with 4 years as Managing Director of BMW UK during which he led the business to record growth and a 500% improvement in profitability.

Kevin has a unique talent for engaging audiences – and for inspiring them to take action. His experiences of driving turnarounds, achieving 500% profit growth and transforming local companies into global players were acquired within the corporate environment. His entrepreneurial experience of founding businesses, acquiring underperforming companies and transforming them into market leaders has allowed him to develop a complementary set of skills and knowledge.

Gaskell has led global corporations, start-ups, private equity portfolio companies and organisations large and small to create shareholder value in excess of US$5 billion.
