Receptionist and Administrative Assistant

Gordon Agar


The pleasant yet catty keeper of the castle gates, Gordo is Merit’s personal assistant extraordinaire and the company’s prime Communications liaison officer! Born in Winnipeg and a local performance artist ‘star’ in the 80s, Gordon moved to England in 1984 where he worked in: local government at the Greater London Council (abolished since by Thatcher); contemporary art at Camden Arts Centre and at the Guardian Media Group where he managed the arts ‘Review’ section of the Sunday Observer newspaper. Gordon moved back to Winnipeg in 2011 and Merit snapped him up immediately! His organizational skills are only matched by his indie pop-culture knowledge. As the world expert on Joan Jett and Runaways, he has a passion for music and obscure trivia.
