I had the honour of working with Gerry at the Premier's Department for seven years. He was a strong leader with high expectations of himself and encouraged his staff to match that. This resulted in a hardworking and productive working environment. We never complained about working long hours, as with Gerry's guidance important results were achieved. I missed that environment when I left to become a magistrate and am grateful to Gerry for the significant contributions he helped us to make. My condolences to Gerry's family.

CONDOLENCE:
Gerald Gleeson AC was one of the most outstanding NSW civil servants of his era.He served as the Secretary of the Premier's Department between 1977-1988 with considerable distinction. Along with John Ducker the then Head of the Public Service Board they maintained tight control over the NSW public service while at the same time managing the interface with the volatile politics of the NSW's political system.He was totally committed to the Premier of the day and was always at his side.
He had moved from the Education sector into the overall administration & control of the largest State public service.He was probably the last of the fervent advocates and protectors of NSW's State's rights.He had a very strong commitment to his family and his faith & greatly enjoyed his tennis & rugby.

Kenneth Baxter,
former Secretary of Premier & Cabinet Victoria & Director General of NSW Premier's Department.

It was a great privilege and pleasure to work with Gerry on the boards of City West Development Corporation and Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority and their related subsidiaries.
Gerry was indeed a man of great integrity and wisdom and a very adept and inclusive chairman.
He will be missed.
Sincere condolences to all his family members.
