Gary has joined the staff in our Frisco location as an Ed Rep. He is a Dallas native who attended Highland Park Middle and High School before pursuing a degree in Music Education at Texas Tech University. Gary has performed in many groups including the Jazz Ensemble, Court Jesters, Concert and Marching Bands. After completing his degree, Gary joined the US Navy, touring South America with the Navy Show Band East. Four years later, Gary was honorably discharged to continue his education in Music Composition at North Texas State.
When asked about why he became a Rep for the company, Gary responded:
"Following a summer on the road with a local musician I chose to get into sales as a Manufacturer's Representative for several lines of consumer electronics. We were awarded Rep-of-the-Year our first year with Alpine Electronics. My performance led to a corporate offer - Regional Manager for Alpine/Luxman - where I was responsible for managing reps in the Southeast & Midwest. A few years later, I was selected to be Director of Sales for the Harman Consumer Group - dealing with key accounts, business plans, and rep management for the Southwest.
I have continued to play saxophone with various Big Bands in DFW: Crosswinds Jazz Band, Celebration Jazz Orchestra, Pecos River Brass, Joshua Experience, Dallas Jazz Orchestra, and others. A few years back I played in Urban Renewal, a "Tower of Power" cover band; and still play in the praise & worship band at Chase Oaks Español."
Through his combination of musical talent and representative experience, Gary will be a helpful addition for us here in Frisco.
In his spare time, Gary also enjoys playing racquet ball, tennis and jogging.
