Like many of us Gary Broussard "backed into the development field."
Gary was asked to create a recruiting and admissions office for a private high school where he taught because he was "good with people." Hard work paid off and they were successful and enrollment grew.
A new president joined the school and he asked if Gary could build a development office because Gary was "good with people." Again, hard work paid off, they were very successful and before he knew it Gary was hooked and on his way to becoming a development professional.
One thing Gary has learned for sure; being "good with people" is about the least important attribute of an effective development professional.
Since those early days Gary has held leadership roles in nonprofits ranging from department head to directorships to the executive level. Including serving as Executive Directer of the Central Arizona College Foundation and as Vice President for Institutional Advancement at St. Gregory's University - a wonderful Catholic university in Oklahoma and founded GPB Associates LLC in 2007.
