In 1974, Gary turned his focus to industrial facility development, becoming the VP of Industrial Development for the Daytona Beach Area Committee of 100. In 1980, he turned his energy to the fast growing Space Coast in Brevard County. He developed and leased more than 500,000 square feet of predominately high-tech facilities in less than a decade.
