Employee Spotlight on David Tanner

As controller, David Tanner works at both our Owensboro headquarters and the Louisville store, overseeing all information technology, finance, and human resources functions for the company. He has been with us since 2003, when as a recent college graduate, he was hunting for a job. A friend, who was working for us at the time, recommended us to him.

“I love working with the people, and Gipe has been very successful in creating a family environment,” David says. “The owners have  continued the company’s legacy of having integrity in how they treat their team on the front end and the back end.”

When he’s not backpacking and enjoying nature, traveling with his family, or woodworking, David enjoys working on cars. His current projects are two Mustangs, a 1965 model and a 1979 model.

“I love cars and have a passion for anything automotive,” he says.

With 17 years under his belt at Gipe, David says he looks forward to the next 7 years with the company.

“I am very lucky to be part of a great working family.”
