Gary Watson

Chairman

    Gary has worked for four companies in his career to date. After graduating in Law and deciding against a career as a lawyer, he trained (unsuccessfully!) as a Chartered Accountant before moving into recruitment in 1984 with Accountancy Personnel (now Hays plc). Later that year he joined Michael Page as a consultant and worked his way up to Regional Managing Director responsible for a number of specialist businesses employing some 400 fee-earners. He is passionate about the industry and believes in providing an environment which allows individuals to play to their strengths and to progress on merit in order to reach their full potential. He joined Investigo as CEO in July 2010 and led an MBO backed by Investec in December 2013. His vision is for Investigo to become synonymous with the sourcing of both permanent and interim talent in the professional services arena and to become a leader in each of its chosen fields. He became Chairman in May 2018.
