Dean Harrison – Founder & Director


What’s your favourite quote?

This is a tough one to narrow to just one because I usually prefer a good analogy to a quote. “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” – Oscar Wilde or “What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Your top 3 favourite Podcasts/Books?

Books – Bonfire of the vanities – Tom Wolfe, Merchant of Venice – Shakespeare, love anything on serial killers and partial to a conspiracy or a UFO book! Podcasts – Mike Winnet and loved the Eddie Hearn podcast for the BBC!

What is something (people in your industry/niche) have to deal with that you want to fix?

We aim to fix the idea that hiring externals is hit and miss and the idea that end-user clients are better off just using their partner for all resources. In the majority of cases, we place consultants who we’ve worked with before. This is a key focus of Gorilla to help take the substandard out of subcontracting!

What do you like about working at Gorilla ERP?

Well as it’s my company I love everything about it!!! Apart from when I’m made to make the coffees or tea!

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?

Love a decent movie and some junk food, I mean who doesn’t!? We are fortunate to be based in the Pembrokeshire so getting out, exploring, nice walks and enjoying the beach with the family. Also partial to a game of table tennis or squash and love boxing and rugby, all be it the last two I’ve been retired from for many years!
