Planet Arborist

Gilbert is the CTO and co-founder of Planet Arborist.
Gil has become a bit of an itinerant technologist having spent much of the last 30 years living and working in cities across Asia, the US and Europe. Most of that time was in Financial Technology delivering solutions to capital markets traders. Somebody decided it would be a good idea him to lead the technology for Planet Arborist.
Gil loves working in small companies with energised passionate founders. Every day brings new and interesting challenges. It seems like a pivotal time in history where as a species we need to change how we interact with our planet – and are supporting that change.
