Getting to Know Gary

Gary was raised on a ranch in Big Timber and has a deep-rooted understanding of the cooperative business model, influenced by his family background. His connection to cooperative values can be traced back to his Norwegian immigrant grandparents, who ventured to Montana and established their homesteads. His family’s bond with their Norwegian cousins remains strong, with some of them actively contributing to electric cooperatives in Norway. One cousin serves as an IT manager, while another relative holds a board of trustees position. Through these family ties and shared experiences, Gary’s commitment to cooperative principles has been further nurtured, fueling his drive to bring positive change to our industry.

Those who have worked professionally with Gary will tell you that his congenial personality will foster positive relationships and help create an environment for productive discussions and effective decision-making.
