Gordie hired me away from Citibank and brought me to GHB which changed my life for the better. One of his best pieces of advice he gave me was “I don’t care if you make a good or bad decision. Just make a decision and go forward!” I always appreciated his friendliness and openness with me. I pray for his family.
