About me

Gary W. Steele lives by the credo ""love the work you do"", and his enthusiasm shows where it counts most: in his own work, and that of his staff. In June of 1998, Gary was named Managing Director, Bates Retail. In addition, Gary is responsible for the global Wendy?s account as well as the CVS/pharmacy business.

Prior to Bates USA, Gary worked for at the J. Walter Thompson. During this tenure he was responsible for brands/business on Ford Motor Company, Burger King, Lever Brothers, Eastman Kodak, Grand Union Markets, Miller Brewing Company, Reynolds Metals and Ragu Foods.
If you don?t find him in the office, he?s probably shopping a store somewhere!
