Gary Morton graduated from West Point with honors and had a five-year career as a tank officer, the highlight of which was being part of an extraordinary unit that achieved unprecedented results at the US Army’s grueling National Training Center—the only unit to ever win every simulated battle it fought. Morton completed a master’s degree, also with honors, from the University of Southern California, and transitioned out of the Army to medical-device manufacturer Stryker, where he held positions of increasing responsibility in project management, engineering, R&D, operations, and marketing leadership becoming the youngest VP at the company. This culminated in twelve years as Vice President and General Manager of the EMS equipment business that he cofounded. Today, he is retired from Stryker and lives with his wife in the Midwest, where he writes and invests.
