The Founder - Gary Fallon

Gary Fallon

Founder of VERVANTUM

Gary has had leadership roles in international business development for over 25 years in both the public and private sectors across Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

A passionate advocate for best practices in internationalization strategies, Gary established Vervantum in 2022 with a vision to provide both companies and public-sector institutions with a dedicated advisory resource in all matters related to market access, export strategies and investment attraction.

The core services of Vervantum are designed to span the entire spectrum of internationalization – from feasibility studies for research-based start-ups to diagnostic tools enabling established organizations to benchmark how impactful their current approach to internationalization is – underpinned by training, advisory and direct in-market representation and lead generation support services.

Gary began his career with European business development roles in sectors spanning industrial fabrics, textiles and telecommunications based in Annecy, Paris, Brussels and Munich before joining the Irish governments’ SME development and export promotion agency, Enterprise Ireland, heading up their operations in Berlin, Paris and Beijing where he also operated as a commercial counsellor in the Irish Embassy with responsibility for all trade and investment collaboration between Ireland and Greater China.

In 2015, Gary moved to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, where he undertook advisory roles for key government agencies in economic development as part of the Kingdom's ambitious Vision 2030 blueprint to stimulate and expand trade and investment in non-oil sectors of the economy. Gary recently was a strategic advisor to Saudi Exports for over five years. He designed and implemented a comprehensive online and face to face assessment methodology, which allowed that agency to best align its services to the most appropriate export companies in its portfolio. This role also involved extensive staff and client training and designing and implementing a best-in-class strategic account management framework for the Kingdom's highest priority export companies across multiple sectors.

Gary was educated at Trinity College Dublin and EM Strasbourg. He holds a BBS and MA in International Economics. Of Irish nationality, Gary speaks French, German and Spanish and his native English.
