Partner Relations Director & Member of the Board
Robert Gereige has more than 25 years in roles and industries where people come first, spanning Sales, Marketing, Finance, Administration, Public Speaking, Investment Research, Due Diligence, Risk Analysis, Business Analysis, Leadership, and IT Sourcing & Implementation.
Robert’s career started as a Territory Manager in 1998 for Shaw Industries (based in Australia) where he exceeded sales targets and formed great relationships with his clients.
In 2002 then moved into Finance helping people restructure their mortgages and finances to achieve better outcomes for their families.
In 2003, Robert worked for a Hong Kong based Investment Research and Publishing company, teaching people how to assess their risk profiles, conducting thorough due diligence, whilst being an integral part of the company’s strategic direction. He also single-handily saved investors 5.75 million from an illegal, unlicensed and unregulated online forex broker, of which each investor re-cooped 80% of their investments, working with overseas financial regulators.
Over the last 10 years, Robert has been fully managing his families’ restaurant in Melbourne to be close to family and make up for the lost time he has spent away pursuing his passions in life. Whilst managing the restaurant he also became very empathic towards people in need and the homeless and would often buy them a meal or blanket so they could be warm during the winter months. He has also spent many hours outside of his restaurant management role, assisting people to move into new employment.
Robert is passionate and motivated to help people selflessly who are in need and is driven to protect and better people’s lives. Robert is married to his wife of 5 years and she also fully supports his vision of making a difference and giving back to those who need it.
He currently serves on the Board Of Directors and heads up Partner Relations.
