Gerard Barron is an entrepreneur and CEO who has a record of building globally focused companies in technology, media and future-oriented resource development.
His passion is building companies that will help us build a truly sustainable future. He has been involved in the early strategic development and financing of DeepGreen since its formation in 2011. In 2001, he made his mark in advertising and media by founding Adstream, and remained CEO of the business until December 2013. During that time Adstream grew from a single office in Sydney to over 40 offices in 30 countries around the world.
Mr. Barron has also been a first money investor in industry-leading companies, including Nautilus Minerals and Sirtex Medical. He is focusing on DeepGreen because he believes the company will help supply the world with the essential metals to build the technologies needed for a sustainable future, while avoiding the impacts of terrestrial mining, such as deforestation, tailings and child labour.
