In 2002 after having spent nearly 25 years in corporate life culminating in being an Operations Director Greg started his own Pub business. On the sale of this in 2005 Greg set up Resolution Leisure, a consultancy working in the pub, leisure and hospitality industries. Greg has also worked alongside a leading Corporate Financial Advisory Company and Private Equity with the aim of setting up a hybrid Pub Co.
After an evening out in London Greg & his Wife Gill were taken aback by the number of rough sleepers on our streets. With 80,000 vacancies in the hospitality industry Greg thought someone should do something about it, so Gill suggested he did. And in 2018 Greg & Gill closed the consultancy business and founded Only A Pavement Away, a charity whose purpose is to help the homeless, rough sleepers, ex-offenders and vulnerable veterans find work in the hospitality industry.
Greg sees the industry as one of the mainstays of our communities in terms of employment, bringing people together whilst offering a wide-ranging spectrum of opportunities.
