About Gary

Significant in my background is 30 years of Recruiting, Talent Evaluation, Hiring, and Development of 400+ people.

My early career was centered on Sales Management and Business Development in both the Technology and Finance arena.
I have raised funds in the franchise and new business communities, totaling well over $15M for approximately 145 clients. I placed over $7M in start-up funding as Hewlett-Packard Co.’s West Coast integration partner under “The Garage Program”.

I have successfully built, from scratch, a $26M division for a computer products firm and rebuilt the sales force for a $20M technology integrator.

Work Experience


Board Decisions

June 2016 - December 2016

At Board Decisions our role is to assist both the individual director and the searching board in optimizing their time and resources in finding their counterpart. Using some of the time-tested methods of traditional search, blended with the significant outreach made possible via accessing very large, online communities of business professionals, we greatly expand the search field, and very often, dramatically shorten the search time frames.
