Kevin Gaskell is An extraordinary leader who led iconic brands Porsche, BMW and Lamborghini to unprecedented levels of success before creating global businesses from scratch. A corporate trailblazer, serial entrepreneur and world class team builder recognised as one of the outstanding leaders of his generation.
Leading the turnaround of Porsche from close to bankruptcy to market leader saw Kevin Gaskell, at the age of 32, identified as an extraordinary leader. He consolidated that recognition with 4 years as Managing Director of BMW (GB) during which he led the business to record growth and a 500% improvement in profitability.
Since moving on from the automotive sector Kevin Gaskell has led businesses to massive success in the digital, technology, data, brand marketing, market research, construction, retail, professional services and manufacturing sectors. Such flexibility and adaptability has confirmed his position as an extraordinary and inspirational leader.
He has led global corporations, start-ups, private equity portfolio companies and organisations large and small to create shareholder value in excess of $3Billion.
He has also found the time to play international sport and to walk to both the north and south poles and climb the world’s highest mountains to fund the construction of a cancer treatment unit.
Using an energetic and inclusive style he shares the tools and techniques which have enabled his teams to deliver results which even they considered impossible – until they achieved them. His approach of ‘Inspired Leadership’ at every level in the organisation has been demonstrated to achieve extraordinary success again and again.
He demonstrates that leadership is an adaptable and transferable skill and is a key enabler of successful teamwork in any situation.
Drawing upon his deep experience and his current leadership roles in a number of growing companies Kevin provides audiences with practical lessons of how people can be inspired to achieve extraordinary results. He offers the audience practical tools that they can take and immediately apply to their own business.
