Kevin Gaskell's 2022 biography

About Kevin Gaskell

Kevin Gaskell has held the positions of CEO of premium automotive brands Porsche, BMW and Lamborghini, where he successfully led each to record growth and performance. He also drove the turnaround and revitalisation of luxury motor yacht manufacturer Fairline Yachts. During his time at Porsche, customer satisfaction rose from position #32 in the market to position #1. At BMW operating profit increased by 500% while customer satisfaction increased.

Leading the turnaround of Porsche from close to bankruptcy to market leader saw Kevin Gaskell, at the age of 32, recognised as one of the most capable leaders of his generation. 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 his roles in the automotive sector he 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.

When leading the growth of these companies, his teams developed innovative customer relationship techniques which provided clients with a world class standard of customer experience. His firm view that a world class experience must be delivered wherever and whenever a customer touches the brand. To achieve this, the entire team must understand and appreciate how they are personally responsible for providing and developing excellence.

One recognised as the best private equity investment of the year, another nominated as the World’s 7th most innovative company. Passionate about the development of leadership skills he is frequently sought to reinvigorate teams and companies. Recognised as one of the outstanding leaders of his generation.

A highly motivational and engaging speaker, he believes that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary results – and he has the experiences to prove it. 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 walk to both the north and south poles and climb the world’s highest mountains to fund the construction of a cancer treatment unit.

In his talks he explains how effective leadership is key to engaging staff and inspiring teams, and how inspired teams will achieve extraordinary results. He shares the strategies and techniques that he has used to build excellent customer satisfaction and astonishing brand loyalty. He believes that price is not a number, it is an experience and he gives the audience the toolkit to develop a world class experience of their own.

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 shows that leadership is an adaptable and transferable skill and is a key enabler of successful teamwork in any situation. Drawing upon his experience and his ongoing leadership roles in growing companies Kevin shares practical lessons of how individuals in businesses from 7 to 7,000 employees can be inspired to create teamwork which transforms organisations and achieves world class performance.

Kevin Gaskell is a leader who has been there and done it, and then done it again, and again. His speeches provide the inspiration, and share the tools, which enable each member of the audience to return to their role energised and informed and ready to achieve something extraordinary.
