Our Roots

Gary Garner III

Gary III has a very unique combination of "real world" experience and education. Gary grew up in a local family owned small business (Gary's Garden Center) and learned, from the "school of hard knocks," what it takes to successfully manage a business. Furthermore, Gary was heavily involved in creating marketing plans and generating content. Gary graduated from Gardner-Webb University with a B.S. in Business Administration. In addition he took marketing classes above and beyond his degree requirements. He found his real world experience to be of great value in the classroom. He is passionate about seeing small locally owned business succeed!
