Abroad he was the Account (Sales and Marketing) Manager for Pan American World Airways in the Easter and Central Provinces of Saudi Arabia. In 1993 he set-up his own successful Design Agency in Leixlip, Co. Kildare which held several corporate and blue-chips clients (Intel, Hewlett-Packard, Citibank Corp, Motorola, Schneider Electric, Aer Rianta, Green Isle, NUI Maynooth).

With the advent of the Internet, his Agency managed the distinction of being – through Ireland Today – the first independent, fully online daily news service in Ireland and the first supplier of Current Affairs News to Yahoo UK and Ireland.
Gilbert’s main focus of interest has always been Publishing. New technologies have permitted him to transform this interest into a business venture. He is the owner of a niche market publishing company with French and Italian Imprints.
