On an historic day in September of 2001, Gary and Firm Principal, Jill Mendoza discussed an opportunity for him to join the firm. Fast forward to 2020, and after being with IDO Incorporated for nineteen years now, Gary has played an integral role in helping IDO develop its Specialized Move Management service offerings into one of the Hoosier State’s top Life Sciences’ Lab and Healthcare relocation & transition providers.
Having always been inspired by Colonel Eli Lilly’s famous quote, “Take what you find here, and make it better”; Gary feels his most recent project accomplishments have enabled him to fulfill this philosophical approach. As a result of helping to solidify the firm’s credibility factor in the Specialized Move Management arena, he now wants to further branch out and expand the firm’s Science Lab and Healthcare relocation & transition horizons.
Gary is a long-time member of the International Facility Management Association – IFMA Indianapolis Chapter. He has achieved the International Facility Management Association’s – Facility Management Professional (FMP) designation in February of 2010, and the Sustainability Facility Professional (SFP) designation in December of 2015, to further enhance his facility management knowledge. Gary really enjoys spending time with his family, anything BUFFALO related, going to the movies, listening to The Beatles, reading John Grisham novels and has just recently “retired” from his love of playing hockey … by “hanging up his skates”.
