Gary Fredson, founder and CEO of the ESE Solar talks to Tom Houghton from the Liverpool Echo.

Gary shared his story of some of his darkest moments when he lost everything and was living on pot noodles, borrowing money from his Father to buy his daughter a birthday present.

Close to bankruptcy, losing his car and having his properties repossessed there were some very dark moments Gary admitted.

It is at these times that you find out who your real friends are. You discover who are your fair weather friends.

It is also easy to be negative and blame everybody and everything else for your situation. It is hard to took in the mirror daily, accept responsibility and doing something about it.

Gary made the decision that he was going to change his mindset and set regular goals and be positive.

This positive change in attitude, turned his life around, improving his wellbeing and helped him to build a multi-million pound business that is going from strength to strength.

The huge success of the business in this short amount of time can be attributed to his positive attitude and ambitious goal setting and the best is yet to come.

Gary’s passion for renewable energy is infectious and his vision is inspiring.

Together with his team we have some fantastic social projects in the pipeline.

Making more use of renewable energy sources makes a greener home

Born in North West England, Jack kicked off his career in the insurance arena, dealing with claims for three years. Always up for a challenge, Jack leapt out of his comfort zone and embarked upon 5 years of excitement with the military.

Working for the Ministry of Defence, Jack specialised in counter-terrorism which took him to places such as Dubai, Oman, Iraq, Norway and Bahrain. During this period he worked with various Governments implementing strategic operations to prevent terrorism.

After travelling around various countries Jack increasingly came across various forms of solar from large solar farms to domestic solar panels. From here Jack took a keen interest in all things solar and started reading about the technological capabilities with a view to entering the industry after his career in the Ministry of Defence.

Once home after 5 fruitful years, Jack had 3 months leave in which he immersed himself in a solar crash course and got applying for jobs within the solar sector. He came across ESE Solar, a long-established forward-thinking company whose head office was only a stone’s throw away from him. He picked up the phone to see if there were any vacancies and within a week had a successful interview and obtained a full-time job, starting in the technical team.

Within the first few months, Jack onboarded in various online courses during work and social hours to speed up his knowledge of all things solar. Due to his strong work ethic and thirst for knowledge Jack was promoted to Head of Technical at ESE Solar. He currently leads the team and oversees the product development of new technologies within the company alongside assisting where necessary on their maintenance department.
