Who is he?

Gary spent seven years at a leading supermarket chain as a Programme Manager, developing new store sites. He describes himself as someone who likes to succeed in all he does, and his biggest achievement in business to date was delivering the largest property development programme in the history of the supermarket he worked at in 2010-11. He says he's happy but also not happy as he always wants more. Also, he has an interesting nickname... "I am known as Mr Mankini. Whether it be running the London Marathon, running the Great North Run, give me a challenge and as long as it's legal and hopefully can raise some cash, I'll do it in a mankini."
