Bonne Giese - Treasurer / Co-Founder
Bonne makes a career out of creating efficiencies within both start-up and existing business structures, saving her clients’ money and time without hampering their mission or personnel. Bonne has helped develop and implement these processes for Software, Media, Financial, Industrial and Services based clients locally and internationally.
Local beneficiaries of Bonne’s expertise include Louisiana Pacific, Empire Airlines, Next-IT, and St. Vincent DePaul as well as a handful of banks, and car dealerships. Her favorite customers however, are based in Chicago, Germany, and Nicaragua. Of particular interest, is her current work with Karla's Hope - a fledgling system of citizen-owned micro-lending institutions in Nicaragua, providing economically disadvantaged communities the means to help themselves provide a better life within the community. Comparatively, running a PAC for DfGO is a walk in the park.
Garrett "Gun" Guinn - Corporate Outreach Coordinator
Garrett's thirteen years in the US Army in combat environments with the 2nd Ranger Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group, 10th Mountain Division give him "no bullshit" combat experience. He know's what works and what doesn't. He learned first hand that most manuals are created by guys behind desks and that there is no substitute for being there.
He proved his skills in Sniper School and the Special Operations Target Interdiction Course (SOTIC). He worked closely with the US Army Marksmanship Unit, testing the XM-107 in its many variants prior to the decision to go with the M82-A3, what the Army chose to call the M-107 Sniper Weapon System. This made him familiar with product development and testing cycles needed to improve such weapons systems.
Graduating the US Army Instructor Training Course honed his skills and fueled his desire to teach. Today, Garrett leads a select group of hand picked consultants and instructors. When he can spare us the time from his busy schedule, Garrett assists DfGO as our Corporate Outreach Coordinator.
