Gary has started, managed and sold seven successful service companies. He brokered his first business in 1983 as a result of being asked to help sell a firm he had once owned and sold to a buyer who wanted to move on again. The buyer in that first brokered sale was none other than Rico Petrocelli, formally of the Boston Red Sox. Gary went on to start and run service companies in the fields of commercial landscaping, janitorial services, office coffee service, moving and storage, telemarketing and corporate employee relocation. Each company was sold once goals were reached. Gary was also one of the initial stockholders in the agent buyout of Bekins Van Lines, a national moving and storage firm. Licensed in real estate since 1984, Gary has been involved in the negotiation for sale of businesses and/or real estate in over 30 states and several foreign countries.
