Gary brings 19 years of experience in the field of sales and telecommunications starting upon his graduation from Florida A&M with a B.A. in Speech Communications & Marketing. From 1989 to 1993, Gary gained experience in risk management involved with telecom Sales and became a top salesman for two large telecommunications firms.
Then in 1993, he took on an opportunity to further his knowledge in the area and joined Equalnet where he became Vice President of Sales and Marketing. He helped increase revenue from 12 million a year to 70 million and in 1995 Equalnet was the first AT&T reseller to have a public offering. In 1996, Gary left Equalnet to test a new business model in telecommunications resale. He brought together his current management team and founded U.S. Republic. The success of U.S. Republic was largely due to Gary’s concentration on the need for continual improvement in up-to-the-minute technology. In 1999, Gary negotiated the sale of U.S. Republic, now primarily a web services company, to Prodigy Communications Corp. for $100 Million dollars in stock and cash. He was asked to remain at Prodigy as the President of Prodigy Biz, their business division.

In 2006 with the ever-growing focus of online advertising, Gary started List and Found. List and Found helping businesses get found “locally” through business listings on Google Maps, Yahoo Local, MSN Live, Superpages, Yellowpages.com, Local.com and many other local destinations.
