Bill Gast

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Don’t let the suspenders and bowtie fool you. Bill lettered in wrestling. He also used to race motorcycles. Which helps explain his tenacious commitment to serving the needs of our clients. He honed his management and marketing skills at the Business Management Program at the Wharton School of Business. But he also went to art school, which makes for a formidable mix of creative, marketing and business expertise. When he’s not out actively growing the business, he’s active in his other two loves. Serving as a Trustee of his alma mater, the University of the Arts, and teaching environmental sustainability and stewardship in Kenya.
