Gareth Beard

Managing Director

Gareth started life working as a van driver for an electrical wholesaler. Quickly moving through the ranks and becoming an assistant manager, before taking six months out to cure his itch for the unknown and travelling with his now wife, Steph.

Gareth returned to blighty and was lucky to get a call from his former employer offering him a job immediately upon his return. Despite having to start from scratch, he soon became an assistant manager and a ‘go-to’ man for other employees and customers alike.

In 2011 and after identifying an opportunity for the business to get involved in something new and niche, Gareth put together a plan for the business to get involved in Solar Power – at that point, a relatively new industry. The new line of business was a huge success with the company offering in-house training to contractors, sales and install teams as well as management and staff within the company. The business continued to grow from strength to strength and despite the uncertainty within the industry thanks to the fluctuations in the now closed government FIT (Feed-In-Tariff) scheme, the business had its hand forced in having to create an extension to its premises to house the ever growing turnover of Solar PV stock.

In 2018, Gareth decided that he wanted a new challenge and on September 26th, GB Solar Ltd was born. With the goal to use his eight years’ experience, knowledge and expertise gained to build a reliable, professional and successful Solar PV company.

Excited about the future of the industry and the constant breakthrough’s in technology, Gareth is keen to further the progress made through Battery Storage, Smart-Home Solutions and the obvious synergy between Solar PV and Electric Vehicle charging.

In his personal life and in-between being a big live music and Foo Fighters fan, Gareth is a keen cricketer. Having represented Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club at all junior ages and being chosen to represent the prestigious MCC on many occasions.
