Over the past decade, Gerard Hanshe has worked in various roles within GCG, bringing a unique perspective to each role based upon his diverse experience both inside and outside of the organization.  In his current role, Mr. Hanshe is serving as the Senior Program Director and Product Owner for a high-profile, company-wide technology initiative aimed at streamlining business operations and increasing GCG’s efficiency in running projects. 

Mr. Hanshe began his career with GCG as a data analyst, working on operational and client reporting in GCG’s New York office, leveraging his experience with SQL Server reporting and securities transactional data to help deliver more effective and efficient client reports for the team handling mostly securities cases.  As a former options & futures principal at a high-volume trading company holding his Series 3, 4, 7, 24, 55, and 63 securities licenses, he brought a unique perspective to all of GCG’s data intensive settlement administrations involving vast amounts of securities trading information. 

Mr. Hanshe held a key role in the creation and launch of GCG ICE®, the secure, patent-protected website used by institutional investors, law firms, and claim filing companies to file and monitor claims electronically in securities class action lawsuits.  He also played a major operational and reporting role in the Gulf Coast Claims Facility and Deepwater Horizon Settlement, the two phases of GCG’s largest and highest profile matter to date, for which he earned Employee of the Year in 2010. He also served as a project lead within operations for several of GCG’s most high-profile, data intensive administrations, including the Bank of America Securities Litigation, the In re Regions Morgan Keegan Closed-End Mutual Fund Litigation and the Hewlett-Packard Securities Litigation.  

Prior to joining GCG, Mr. Hanshe practiced as an attorney handling case analysis and strategy development for tort and medical malpractice actions, as well as on business contracts and other corporate legal issues for a variety of business clients.  Before that, he served as a registered principal, business analyst, and equities trader at E*Trade Financial and Tradescape.com in New York, where he managed various operations functions of trading groups within the company and ensured compliance with securities laws, especially those related to options and futures trading.
