Meet David Skol

Get to Know David Skol!

Perhaps no other person on the team embodies the spirit of hard work, creativity, and flexibility like David Skol. Like many others here, he’s worn a number of different hats, and is constantly hatching great ideas for company improvement. David started as a Customer Support Representative with talents that were helpful in support of the Automation Development team, and he currently shines as a Corporate Gift Specialist. He never quite takes any of his hats off, so you’ll still find David answering the customer support line, jumping in to help rectify a customer satisfaction issue, and tweaking our order management systems at the busiest times of year.

Tell us about yourself. What's interesting or fun about you? What do you love to do and why?

I do a lot of things, and I don’t do anything I don’t love. That keeps me interested in the world, and keeps me topped up on interesting things to share with other people. I love my family, I love to travel, and I love being part of an eCommerce company in the modern age. Technology has allowed me to balance a unique, fast-paced work environment with travel and time with loved ones. The work is fun and challenging, and the people I love to get come along for the ride.

What are your favorite holidays?

I think Mother's Day is a beautiful – and often overlooked – holiday. Where would we be without mothers? I love the time of the year when we’re choosing new products for the women who nurture the world. I also love Knowledge Day on September 1st, which is the official start of the Back to School season. When I was a kid, it was always exciting to get fresh books, go back to classes, meet teachers and students, and learn new things. Now, as an adult, I look forward to sharing those joys with my kids.

Halloween is a lot of fun, too! Our family has a great tradition of going on scary rides. We build our own scarecrow, and we get all dressed up and take the children trick-or-treating.

What are your favorite products in the GBO catalog?

I love the gift towers. I like “a little bit of everything” in all that I do, so the variety in the gift towers is just perfect for someone like me. They’re great for sharing, and everybody loves opening all the different boxes. The Mother’s Chocolate Tower is a really good one, and it’s perfect for one of my favorite holidays.

What do you wish customers knew when they call in?

I want to let all of our customers know that we're different from every eCommerce company you’ve ever worked with. Every single order placed gets individual attention. Every single request or inquiry receives a response from a human being. Every single gift basket has the human touch. This takes some time, but we still manage to do it faster than most.


Since you're so awesome and talented, and could clearly work anywhere, what makes you love working at

I get to be a part of a global network that connects people all around the world quickly and easily, in a truly tangible and emotional way. You can say hello on Facebook or Skype, but you can only send that special bottle of wine or their favorite chocolates on that special day when they’re far away with We’re connecting parents with their far-off college kids; military personnel with the folks back home; citizens of the world who have loved ones in a number of countries; and even businesses who want to share their generosity internationally with employees, customers, and VIP partners. We are truly creating love without borders, one gift basket at a time.
