Gareth is the joint majority shareholder along with co-founder Pete Willcocks. On a day to day basis Gareth oversees all sales and mortgage activities, as well as working with Pete to set and implement the business strategy. Gareth started his career in the later 2000’s, working at Mortgage Advice Bureau (MAB) selling protection products relating to mortgages. Over a decade later Gareth founded Roots with Pete Willcocks and now finds himself once more working closely with MAB – with Roots using MAB for all mortgages and protection products. In-between, Gareth worked as an in-house mortgage advisor for some of the East Midlands biggest estate agencies, eventually heading up the financial services arm of Taylors Estate agents in Leicester, leaving after it was bought out in 2018 to become Managing Director and 50% shareholder at Mortgage Experts in Rugby (which is where he met fellow 50% shareholder Sean Newman), and who use MAB no less for their mortgage and protection products – there’s a pattern developing here… Gareth is also CeMAP qualified.
