Gordon has a wide range of international business experience. His primary focus today is business and organisational development with a strong grounding in engineering, product management, marketing and sales, strategic planning and finance – in particular early-stage and venture capital finance.
Having spent ten years in the corporate sector, primarily with Mercury Communications – at its peak one of the fastest growing companies in Europe – Gordon set up his own business in 1995. This has involved a combination of consulting to larger blue-chip organisations, combined with acting as both a principal in, and adviser to, smaller growing businesses.
In the early to mid 2000’s, Gordon was involved in two major Government backed projects to promote the take-up of broadband and related ICT services in the South West of England. In 2010 he co-founded a wireless technology company which went through multiple rounds of angel and VC finance before exiting to a Silicon Valley based US firm in 2015.
He became involved with Formula E in late 2012 and co-produced the official documentary (‘Racing Recharged’) which followed the birth of this new electric world racing series. The programme was broadcast around the world on the National Geographic Channel just before the inaugural race in Beijing. His current interests are in Technology, Media and Entertainment.
