What do furniture and criminal justice have in common? Well, they have both been passions of Gary Acedo. Before entering the contract furniture industry in 2000 with Office Depot, Gary was pursuing a career as a police officer. Today, after joining DRG in 2019, Gary is “protecting and serving” in a completely different way. By collaborating with clients, contractors, and designers on workspace environments, he is using his wealth of experience and insight to “protect” our clients’ brands and budgets. Likewise, Gary is committed to “serve” by going above and beyond for our clients, as is our entire staff. When an install is taking place, you can count on Gary being there to make sure everything is done correctly and everybody is smiling ear-to-ear.
Our team and clients are fortunate that Gary and his family moved to Atlanta from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, in 2017. He and his wife, Susan, have been married for 19 years and have three beautiful children, Shelby, age 12, Campbell, age 10, and Max, age 8. The newest addition to the family is their rescue dog, Winnie.
Gary is also a fierce competitor on the golf course and at the poker table. It’s only fitting that “ace” is in his name.
