    Garret Gifford

    Franchisee

    My wife, Kim, and I have owned FASTSIGNS of Arvada since 2002.  We moved here from Chicago, where I graduated from business school at the Kellogg School of Management. After school, I worked for two Fortune 500 companies and decided I wanted to own my own business. I enjoy helping customers solve their visual communication needs.  After nearly two decades, I encounter new opportunities and challenges that I have never been faced with before.  We are fortunate to have a great team that makes work fun and rewarding. When not at work, I enjoy playing a variety of sports, coaching lacrosse, and fly fishing.  Kim and I have three great kids.  All three are currently in college and keep in touch on a regular basis (when they need money).  We are trying to manage life as "empty nesters".

    Tawnya Kluth

    Marketing Manager and Administrative Assistant

    Working at Fastsigns offers a measure of creativity in turning challenges into solutions.  This gives me the opportunity to implement new marketing strategies, while utilizing my skills to brand our products and services to our community.  I enjoy being part of a team that consistently offers innovative ways in the completion of every project inspiring new ways to "tell the story" of these accomplishments.  Outside of work being a "Colorado Girl" there is never a loss of getting lost in the mountains whether it's camping, mountain biking, snowboarding, or exploring our backyard.
