Rory Gibson, Managing Director

Rory Gibson

Managing Director

Rory Gibson is a husband, father, business owner, recruitment consultant and “wannabe” sportsman. After seeing a bit of the world and starting a career as a carefree young professional in London he moved back to his northern roots to settle down and open a recruitment business. His ethos is about getting the most out of every experience and this is the foundation that Gibson Hollyhomes Recruitment is built on. He likes to be treated fairly and believes that the qualities of trust and honesty are the key to professional success. None of these qualities appear to have helped him reach his personal goals of winning an Olympic medal, bringing up two well behaved children and running a business that allows him to achieve his other favourite pastime….Pub time.

Lisa Gibson, Director

Lisa Gibson


Founding Gibson Hollyhomes over 10 years ago has without a doubt been the highlight of my career within Recruitment. Over that time I have learnt that success in Recruitment is quite simply honesty with both candidates and clients alike and this is how we continue to grow and retain our business. Overseeing the Sales & Service Division is my key responsibility along with directly managing our larger call centre clients. I am very much at the heart of the business and work directly alongside the team day to day and wouldn’t have it any other way. My passions spread into my personal life in the form of Marathon running having completed many courses within the UK. I aim to run an international marathon when my two, young, needy but amazing daughters will let go of my legs for long enough.
