Gibson Machinery Honored as Featured Company for GE Capital, Slate’s National Campaign

Thu August 15, 2013 - Midwest Edition

Gibson Machinery was recently nominated and selected to be part of GE Capital and Slate’s 2013 Roadshow for Growth as part of a six-month, 20-city tour that will address the issues of middle market businesses, a sector that generates $9 trillion in annual revenue and accounts for nearly 34 percent of total U.S. employment. Traveling in a branded bus, the Roadshow for Growth visited middle market businesses in Cleveland, Detroit, Charlotte, Dallas, Atlanta, and Los Angeles, among other cities. On June 13, Gibson Machinery was honored to be one of the few select businesses chosen to be interviewed and filmed as a stop on this tour.

In the video on the Roadshow for Growth Web site, “Selling Construction Equipment and Breaking the Glass Ceiling,” Lee Gibson, Larysa Gibson, and Meredith Gibson share their insights on Gibson Machinery’s success during the economic downturn. Larysa Gibson also explains how she meets the challenges of being a female owner in a heavily male-dominated industry.
