Getting to know Gavin
What do you enjoy most about working at RTD?
The people! Everyone I work with are not only top-notch professionals, but outstanding human beings who really care about each other and their clients. At RTD, I know the client and their interests come first no matter what.
What makes you good at what you do?
My desire to help people and build relationships. I worked as a caddie and found satisfaction in building relationships with the members while helping them with their game. This is what drove me to work at such a client-centered firm like RTD.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?
My ice hockey coach growing up always preached accountability. He would say that everyone is going to make mistakes, but the important part is owning it and learning from the experience.
What’s the most exciting vacation you’ve taken?
In 2021, I chose to pursue a lifelong dream of thru hiking the Appalachian Trail in lieu of attending Temple virtually. It was one of the best times of my life where I met amazing people, experienced beautiful scenery, and I learned so much about myself.
