SquadLocker

Rhode Island

Gary is a third-generation textile engineer who has leveraged that legacy and his love of innovation into designing products to improve the well-being and comfort of consumers for some of the world's most recognized retailers and brands. His first step in this direction was founding Case The Music, which turned traditional basic black guitar and musical instrument cases into works of art. As founder and CEO of SquadLocker, Gary has once again turned the ordinary into the extraordinary by revolutionizing the custom apparel process for team sports. While he admits he never reached sports star status in his younger days, it hasn’t stopped Gary from securing and finding synergy with world-class athletes for his On The Whistle podcast. A native to New England, Gary resides in Providence, RI and welcomes new connections through LinkedIn.
