Gary North
Director / Leader for Annexation


Gary North, Director of AnnexationGary spent his professional career in Aerospace manufacturing and distribution. But first he served his country as a United States Marine for six years that included a tour in Vietnam.

After an honorable discharge from the service, he spent 20 years with SPS Technologies in Jenkins Pennsylvania. The first eight were spent as a sales representative; the remaining 12 years were spent as an account executive where he became a top producer in sales and marketing, increasing sales revenue in the Southwest Region from $2 to $18 million while preparing bids, negotiating contracts and managing long term agreements.

In 1996 he was recruited away to become CEO of ABSCOA Industries in Forth Worth TX. ABSCOA was a turn around. Investors had grown weary of that company’s poor performance as a provider of inventory management programs and a distributor of hardware for the aerospace industry. Gary hired key industry personnel and made acquisitions to implement new sales, marketing and operational programs. The results were increased sales, from under $5 million to over $40 million, and dramatically reduced costs andhigher margins. In 2001 Gary led negotiations for the sale of ABSCOA Industries to UMECO and retired after a one year performance contract.

During his time with ABSCOA, Gary began a very active commitment to community service, serving as President/Chairman of various school organizations and city committees (1992-1998), then as the President of the Oak Ridge Municipal Uitlity District Board, and finally as Mayor of the City of Oak Ridge North (1996-1998). Upon retirement, Gary moved to April Sound where he continues to this day a very active combination of consulting and community service. He is VP Operations and Sales for The Vibration Consortium, Inc. in the Woodlands, TX. His community service includes: member and then/now a Director for the April Sound POA; Director for Montgomery County Utility District #4 that serves April Sound; member and Director of the Lake Conroe Communities Network; member of the four man negotiating team for April Sound’s annexation by the City of Conroe.

Gary received his BS degree in Business from the University of Michigan on the G.I. Bill after his honorable discharge from the Marines.
