Upon graduation from Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey, with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management and minors in Corporate Finance and Information Systems, Gary accepted his first full-time position with ITT Sheraton as a Corporate Trainee.

Feld Hotel Associates (FHA), a privately-held Hotel Development, Ownership and Management Company, recruited Gary to join the organization as General Manager of its flagship property.
