Garret GiffordFranchisee Read Bio
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".
