In 2014, Zerum was formed by the integration of Gary’s original business King Associates, co-owned with Paul Devine and RED Property Services, a business that Gary had utilised on several of his early developments, owned by Anthony Kilbride and Mike Ralph.
In conjunction with the partners, Gary purchased an old mill building in Jordan Street, Castlefield to create a dedicated space for the Planning, Project Management and Building Services Consultancy services that the new Group offered.
“It worked really well with the businesses having their own client base but operating within the same environment, under one brand with a shared vision.
The Company are now a well established brand in the market and whilst Gary maintains his interests, the operation is handled by the other Partners with Gary acting in a supporting role as required.
“Testament has to be given to the lads that own the business with me. I was instrumental in bringing it all together, but the growth and success of their businesses is on them.”
