No, gérer means e.g. to manage a company.

To manage to do something is arriver à + infinitive.

Bonjour Peter et Alan !

I'll complete Alan's answer as such: 

arriver à [faire quelque chose]  =  to manage [to do something]
réussir à [faire quelque chose]  =  to manage/succeed in [doing something]

gérer [quelque chose] = to manage/ deal with [something]

I hope that's helpful!

Bonne journée !
