Having led corporate and financial communications efforts for the Renault/Nissan Group in the New York, Tokyo and Paris, Gerry developed best practices delivering integrated messages to global, national and local media as well as other internal and external stakeholders. He has experience in working cross-functionally and across borders – geographic and corporate – to ensure a company delivers the same clear and consistent message in communications whether it be media, employees, financial markets, government or social stakeholders. He can apply his experience to add value to companies and management teams looking for aggressive and innovative relations with the financial market.
Gerry practices communications as a two-practice, providing valuable insight from consistent interaction with various stakeholders, developing and implementing processes to effectively share information with a management team to ensure that “the message” is not only being communicated, but is being understood. He is comfortable in fast-changing environments; including crises, restructuring, corporate spin-off or just plain volatile economic environments and is as at ease advising in the C-suite as learning a business on a shop or retail floor. Gerry practices fundamental, relationship-based communications with a clear message while leveraging digital and electronic methods to support.
His strength is breaking down complex operations to an easy to understand “story” and ensuring that all communications disciplines are coordinated and consistent. He spent 10 of his 14 years with Renault/Nissan overseas, thriving in a cross-functional, multi-cultural environment and working well in a matrix position with multiple responsibilities.
