Employees travel to Oklahoma City for Garver Summit 2017

Each year, Garver employees gather in one location for presentations, company meetings, awards, and team-building exercises in what has become one of its most anticipated events. Garver Summit 2017, held recently in Oklahoma City proved no different.

Nearly 300 employees from across Garver’s 10-state footprint gathered in central Oklahoma recently for the seventh annual event. This year’s Summit was hosted by Garver’s Norman, Oklahoma office, which has been a part of the Garver family since 2004. One of its largest offices, Norman has provided clients with water, transportation, aviation, facilities design, and construction services for more than a decade. It was the second Summit to be held in Oklahoma, after Garver’s Tulsa office hosted the event in 2014.

Like in years past, the team-building competition was a highlight. More than 35 teams traveled the streets of Oklahoma City in an Amazing Race-style event that sent them through the city’s underground walkways, and required them to maneuver a Segway through the concourse of Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, navigate a white-water rafting course, and zip line over the Oklahoma River.

Summit concluded at the Chevy Bricktown Events Center, where employees participated in presentations, company awards, and a message from CEO and President Dan Williams, who highlighted the company's growth over the last decade and a plan for it to continue.

"Give yourselves a goal," he told employees. "Say it out loud. Refine it. Write it down. That's what we did in 2006. I'm here to tell you, and you can see the proof in Garver's history, establishing a goal is the first step toward achieving it."
