About Gareth

Gareth is the Senior IT Business Partner for Rolls-Royce, Defence customer and services and UKEO future Programmes, based in Bristol.

Gareth joined Rolls-Royce in 2011 following on from a short career in the Royal Air Force as a helicopter pilot. His initial roles in Rolls-Royce were within programme management across a range of projects in IT, infrastructure, process improvement, business transformation and services. His particular focus was the combat platforms for Middle East customers.

In his first role in the IT function, Gareth oversees a portfolio covering all Defence customer and services worldwide and all UK Eyes only projects. As the only Europe-based member of the Defence IT team, Gareth also supports RRD, DGS in Winsford and the Bristol site.

After leaving the RAF, Gareth moved into the British Army where he currently holds the rank of Captain in the Military Intelligence Corps. He supports a range of Defence engagement work between Rolls-Royce and HM Forces and plans to deploy with the British Army in the future.

Educated in Liverpool, Gareth is married to Charlie and has one son, Alfie (1). In his spare time he is an avid sports fan across rugby, football and cricket and still undertakes the odd triathlon to try and stay fit.
