Gary

Gary

Customer Loyalty Manager

GBC’s team has been growing over the years. One of the most recent additions is “Gary” who currently holds the Customer Loyalty Manager position. Although his background is rather unknown as far as where he came from or his family heritage, since April of 2014 he has proven to be determined, a quick learner, loyal, and refuses to be content with the status quo. His best skills are his agility and jumping ability. Gary’s record is clearing an impressive 6 foot high fence while standing still. Gary is always willing to lend an extra “paw” when he can!
