James Gay

Chief Executive Officer

James joined Veritas as Advisor and Mentor to the Board over five years ago, before our Founders asked him to step into the position of CEO to support the growth and future direction of the company. Previously, James co-founded an IT company in 1998, which focused on the Service Management market. Their intuitive and transparent platform created an enviable client-base across the globe, before being sold in 2013.

James’ vision is for Veritas to become the UK’s leading provider of security and maintenance services for managing agents, receivers and other property related companies - and believes this goal will be achieved through customer service excellence, and rewriting what ‘good’ looks like in the industry.
James is passionate about preserving the Veritas family ethos that lies at the core of our company values; providing a nurturing, fun and safe working environment where our team is able to flourish - and is the key reason our clients find us so personable and reactive to their needs.

James loves keeping fit, and champions everyone at Veritas to ‘take a walk’. Rarely one to switch off, he is often found running or cycling around the beautiful countryside of our Head Office in Foxley. A true active relaxer, he is never happier when thinking through business matters than whilst playing a sport, or walking/running with colleagues. 

Cricket is also a big part of his social calendar - playing, watching or hosting games with other like-minded people. In fact, in the past, his interest in cricket has overflowed into his career when James developed a fielding app that was adopted by England Cricket, to record and analyse fielding statistics. 

Home life revolves around family, friends and food. A keen cook, gardener and avid home improver, James is never without a project on the go.
