Garnett Gilchrest

Garnett, our Executive Vice President of Information Technology, leads strategic IT planning to achieve business goals by encouraging innovation, maintaining meaningful vendor relationships and prioritizing IT initiatives across the organization. In short, he makes all our tech work so that we can do our best work for you. 

Garnett started out in the technology industry as a software engineer for Sprint, where he developed core systems to support the program management office.  He continued his focus on business management software development at Curves International where, as Enterprise Architect, he led several ERP implementations and a global business software platform. 

Rounding out his experience, he previously taught development courses at Texas State Technical College and has successfully completed HR and Payroll implementation projects for American Airlines and Freeman, one of the world’s largest event marketing firms.  While most of his free time is spent with his wife and kids, he still finds time to tinker with all the new tech toys he can get his hands on.
