Leadership

"I really appreciate the leadership of Gaskins. It is not often that you receive both quality service and personal relationship together. I think that is why Gaskins has such a great reputation and long-term clients. They put energy into the project and into their people, which always benefits their clients"

- Jeremie Kubicek
  President/CEO, Giant Impact

Leadership is not just a word at Gaskins, but an expectation of every employee in every position, from the top to the bottom. Where some companies settle for the traditional characteristics of leadership that just gets the job done, our leaders are challenged to a deeper level which involves real, positive influence in our relationships with each other and our clients.
