Spawned in the height of the Haight-Ashbury era, Mr. G’s Todd & Moore career measures half a century. G came to us as an impetuous young man with an infectious smile. After a thorough sampling of Todd & Moore activities, he settled on outside sales in the early 1970’s.In 1986 after 15 years as the top-rated team salesman in the Carolinas, G was taken off the road and brought in under the corporate umbrella. A year later he was made a full partner in charge of team sales. Almost 30 years later, the smile endures and his knowledge and wisdom continue to enrich each and every Todd & Moore employee. ”The key to success is sincerity. If you can fake that anything is possible.”
