After earning his A.S. Computer Science degree from Pierce College in Philadelphia, Gerry began what would be a 30-year career in the Electric Utility Industry in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Along the way, he completed his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at Alvernia University in Reading, Pennsylvania, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 1992. Retiring in 1997 as Information Technology Director for the utility, he served as Development Director for a manufacturing consortium in Pennsylvania, and then embarked on a second career as Business Manager for a regional law ﬁrm in southeast Pennsylvania. He ﬁnally succumbed to the weather and headed for Florida in 2003.
In Florida, the lure of the working world again attracted him to “get back in the game,” and he signed on as a Consultant and Adjunct Instructor at Lake Sumter State College in 2004, and later at College of Central Florida. In addition, he served as a Consultant at Sumter Electric Cooperative, handling a variety of management training, professional development, and technical responsibilities. Since late 2012, he’s been providing consulting and professional writing services to AMAC, and has been serving as Acting Executive Director of the AMAC Foundation, Inc.
