Gary has worked in numerous diverse roles providing services to a cross-section of clients in various industries. His broad perspectives borrow from his experience in management consulting, Health and IT services, IT products, traditional government contracting for small and large businesses.

Gary understands that a client’s decision to partner with CM Event Solutions (CM) is a risk-based decision. He does not take the trusts of our clients lightly and supports the team in delivering the highest possible quality service.

After learning the events planning industry, made daunting by COVID’s varied challenge, Gary is excited to apply his leadership and managerial experience in support of our team.

"Each employee’s ability to leverage our internal team and industry partners, while drawing on our deep experience to deliver a seamless and successful event, is the value we bring to our clients."
One of my most fun, and scary, moments in the water was when two very large stingrays passed withing arms-length below me while snorkeling in the Bahamas. They are friendly to humans, but their size and gracefulness in the water made it an eerie experience.
I’ve participated, as a member of the contractor support team for NASA, in one satellite launch and two de-orbits (splashed into the ocean). Yes, I was on the ground.
