Gareth, Co-founder and Head of Technology
Gareth splits his time between his role heading up all things technology at Laserbean, and his other role as Head of Product and Development at the leading Recruitment Marketing company 4MAT. He has a huge passion for nearly every aspect of technology and especially its use within the marketing field. He has been working in the online space for 12 years now, from building websites through to heading up teams building advanced marketing platforms. He runs this website, a lot of our marketing efforts and regularly gets stuck into the more technically interesting and challenging client projects.
Having grown up as the son of a jeweller, and having studied design himself in the past, Gareth also has a deep interest in product design and the creative process. He is especially interested in the emergence of truly personalized manufacture, and how unique and individualized products are becoming more and more common place and accessible to the everyman.
A lot of his spare time is spent keeping up to date with technology blogs, but at other times he enjoys travelling, scuba diving, cycling and exploring London. Him and Jane have been known to enjoy the occasional wild night’s clubbing..
