Gary Shearer

Council Members



Born and schooled in Johannesburg, South Africa my career began in the IT wave in the ‘70’s and ‘80’s, where I was privileged to be part of the founding management team of the now listed global Datatec Group.

In 1991, I founded New York based wine trading entity Cape Classics Inc. with my brother, enjoying almost two decades of tough but stimulating global business experience & travel while opening new markets as part of South Africa’s re-entry into the world.

After over 35 years of experience initiating, growing and leading businesses, I altered the trajectory of my journey, and am now privileged to be part of The Saville Foundation, working across the globe looking to support individuals and communities to enable social and individual change wherever possible.
