After growing up in Northumberland, Gideon went to University in Leicester, where he openly admits to spending far too much time on his music. His first job was with the Leicester Probation service, before commencing his recruitment career, initially with Reed Construction & Property, before being headhunted to join Hill McGlynn. During his 2 years with Hill McGlynn, Gideon operated within the contracting field, working with clients in the Caribbean, Far East and Africa, becoming one of the company’s most successful consultants. With a strong global network, Gideon is a leading expert in the build and property market place.
Although business keeps him busy, he still loves his music - playing with his band "Gideon's Demise" at festivals and venues such as Bestival, 02 Academy Bournemouth, 100 Club London, and live sets at BBC Solent, Isle of Wight Radio, and Wave 105 studios. Gideon is also an active member of King's Church, Southampton, and he and his wife, Melissa, have three children, Jude, Aurelie & Rose.
Gideon is responsible for leading The Highfield Company construction and property business, developing both UK and International clients and is supported in delivering assignments by his recruitment team.
