Case Study - Gary Scroby

GaryGary lives in Crowthorne Berkshire and is operating in the Woking franchise territory. He first made contact with Premier in September 2013 after his wife came across Premier online and, knowing that Gary was looking for a career change, said "here is something which I know will interest you".

Gary has enjoyed a successful, 20-year career across the globe as a UK diplomat. His management roles have been within the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, working in Nicaragua for the British Embassy, New Zealand in the British Consulate office and Malaysia with the British High Commission.

More recently after landing back in the UK with his family, Gary has been influential within the horticultural industry. Although he has travelled the world and experienced a wide spread of different cultures, the one thing that has remained is his passion for sport – in particular rugby.

This passion and his enthusiasm for rugby are demonstrated by his coaching role at his local rugby club. It was after attending an awareness day with Andy Heald as part of his due diligence that Gary realised that inspiring children through sport was the direction for him – and he hasn't stop smiling since!

Gary's diplomatic and personal skills, plus his enthusiasm for getting children active, should mean that it won't be too long before Gary is enjoying success with Premier in the Woking region.
