The Gaskins Brothers, the “G” in MGM
Abe Gaskins- The elder brother, his first job at MGM was at the tender age of 14 working on Saturdays,
sweeping floors and cleaning toilets. He decided to go to college after Dad’s "opportunity" wore off and graduated from Vanderbilt
University in 1980, with a degree in mechanical engineering. Upon graduation, he worked as a field engineer for a natural gas pipeline company
and then as a design engineer in the marine industry, before earning his MBA at the University of Tennessee in 1985. That
’s when his dad offered him another opportunity at MGM and he’s been here ever since. As an engineer, Abe oversees MGM’s extrusion operation
and is the principle designer for MGM’s windows. He keeps his pulse on future products that will address customer needs and market trends.
And when he’s not focused on the future, he’s spending his time putting his private pilot’s license to practice,
flying over the Tennessee countryside.
Zeke Gaskins- The middle brother, like Abe worked in the plant as a teenager and began working at MGM as an adult after graduating in accounting from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, in 1981. Zeke's mantra is “quality, quality, quality”. It’s either good quality or bad quality and he will not tolerate bad quality. (Gives him stomach cramps.) Zeke constantly has his pulse tuned to the daily rhythms of the plant and also oversees accounts payable. He enjoys golfing and has discovered the joys of hiking the national parks during vacations. Ask him about Glacier National Park next time you see him.
Joe Gaskins- The youngest brother, graduated from David Lipscomb University in 1982. Keen observer
that he is, he took up team sports during his teenage summers, after observing that Abe was cleaning toilets and Zeke was
following suit. His competitive nature positioned him well for his first job as a high school basketball coach and then as
head coach at Motlow Junior College, in Tullahoma, Tennessee. He went on to be an assistant coach at Austin Peay University in
Clarksville, Tennessee, before deciding to come to MGM and put his concept of team to work as head of the sales department.
Today, Joe functions as the Vice President of Sales and is in charge of receivables at the company. He keeps his finger on the
pulse of MGM’s customers, building trust and lasting relationships with them. When you don’t find Joe working, you’ll find him on the golf course.
All kidding aside, when all three of the brothers came back to MGM as adults, they all started in a production role. Either running the glass department or a running a window production line. As MGM has grown, each brother has gravitated towards specific functional areas and together form a solid core from which the MGM team has grown and florished.
