Our Leadership

“Gorove Slade is committed to providing our time and financial support to help organizations located within the communities where we work and live. We are passionate about improving our professional industry as well as focused on supporting local causes. It’s extremely exciting that Think Big for Kids provides an opportunity to support both of those initiatives at the same time!”
