Today, Gary mentors his staff, promoting a positive and self-reliant work environment that encourages teamwork and a family atmosphere. His strategic focus is based on his beliefs that honesty, caring, loyalty and faith will enable Seashore to provide the best customer experience.

Gary has always been driven to do more. “I believe in being honest, fair, and working hard. The future of Seashore Construction is bright as the team values each other’s contributions, knowing that the customer is the top priority, and the job must be performed to meet Seashore Construction’s quality of work standards.”
