    Gemma Gurney

    Business Development Manager

    Gemma joined Zenith in May 2013 having previously worked in recruitment and more recently as a Bank Manager for a well known high street bank. Following a move from Leeds to Berkshire Gemma has taken a career break for a number of years to look after her young family.

    Her new role involves utilising her strong sales background to speak to our customers in order to refine our database to ensure we are targeting the right people in the correct manner.
