Gary has more than 30 years of industry experience. He started HART in 1981. He moved the company and his family to Kansas City in 1987. Gary grew the territory over the years to include a five-state span, including Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa and southern Illinois, and to represent both furniture and interior-architecture-product manufacturers. He expanded Hart Associates to the south as well, and started a Texas operation in 1992. Gary is proud to have all four of his children in the business (all four have worked for him and three still do). When he isn’t working, Gary enjoys grilling/cooking, yard work, spending time with his grandchildren, and even more family time.
Diane has been with HART since its inception. She enjoys spending quality time with her grandchildren every week.
Ryan graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia where she received a degree in finance. She grew up observing her dad in the furniture world all her life; therefore it was only natural that she joined the family business. Besides furniture, Ryan enjoys spending time with her three children. Ryan hopes one day they will join the business as well.
