Power Connectors

Leadership

Gary learned quickly from some of the top networkers along the Front Range when he started marketing in 2016 for a local company.  After grasping a new understanding of networking, he quickly saw the need to organize some of the top networking talent into an organization that could help others shorten the learning curve and better understand what successful networking looks like.  Front Range Power Connectors began in 2018 and has flourished in the community ever since. They are the only local organization focused on networking, leading by example, and truly connecting people as well as organizations. Through their monthly event and mentorship, they have assisted hundreds with their networking aspirations.  Gary also started the ‘Networking Newsletter’ in 2017. This free monthly email lists many of the great open networking opportunities in the area and reaches over 1000 people. Gary regularly attends Better Business Bureau events, and is a member of Titans of Industry referral group. He joined the Senior Resource Council in 2018 and is currently the Chair of the Membership Committee and joined the Board of Directors in 2019.  He also attends several networking events that are senior focused such as Marketing and Admissions. This is the networking event for anyone who has a business that serves seniors in some capacity. Gary has attended events from the Colorado Springs and Woodland Park Chamber of Commerce in the past and is very familiar with both of these organizations.

Currently, Gary is the publisher of Garden of the Gods Friends and Neighbors, a Best Version Media publication, which reaches thousands of residents in the Kissing Camels, Mountain Shadows, and Pinecliff neighborhoods in Colorado Springs.  He assists local businesses in reaching their target market in these neighborhoods through sponsorship of the magazine. He is also working to create his own business that helps with the onboarding of new marketing employees as it relates to networking.
