Gary is leading BrainWorks Business Development efforts and has spent his career as a Business Development Executive and entrepreneur negotiating thousands of projects across multiple industries. He joined the search world 10 years ago while launching Foundation Talent, a mid-level recruiting and consulting firm focused on high-growth technology-driven companies. After 7 years, Foundation Talent and their team merged with its parent company TrueSearch, helping True maintain its position as the fastest-growing search firm of the past decade.
Throughout his career, Gary has enjoyed scaling businesses while focused on maintaining their culture during growth. He started his first business, Ez2get.com shortly after graduating Towson University. It sold 5 years later and took him to San Francisco for several years where he learned about venture capital, technology, wine, and the timing of the markets. Upon returning East, he joined Site Development and exclusively helped Commerce Bank scale its regional real estate footprint towards an $8.5B exit to TD Bank.
Gary lives in southern NJ with his wife and 4 children. He loves coaching and mentoring youth sports organizations. As his children have grown, he enjoys spending time with his wife and playing an occasional round of mediocre golf while following all Philadelphia sports.
