GGI Insights: A Breath of Fresh Air in Remembrance of Dot Reeder

Around lunchtime, you would often find Dot Reeder, Gillis Gilkerson’s former Accounts Payable Manager, heading out the door in search of some fresh air. In remembrance of Dot, who passed away last June, the Gillis Gilkerson team has followed her lead by taking weekly walks to reflect and share in good conversation with one another. The team fondly dubbed the outings, “Dot’s Dash” in her memory.

The Reeder family has deep roots planted within Gillis Gilkerson—Dot’s husband, Kevin (Senior Estimator), and daughter, Kelly Delano (Receptionist), often participate in the walks alongside her friends and colleagues. As a team, GGI is committed to honoring and remembering Dot— not simply as a member of the staff, but as a member of the company’s ‘family’.

“This is such a great way to honor my mom. She loved her walks and every bit of time that she got to spend with everyone at the office,” said Delano. “My dad and I both appreciate the support and look forward to the walks every week.”

What Our Clients Say

“The global expertise in all aspects of the building construction and access to various sub-contractors was a blessing given the number of technical details that needed to be attended to while we obtained certification from the state health care officials.”

“I was able to get a hold of my friend, who works for Gillis Gilkerson while I was in Africa when I found out my house flooded. When I got home in June, Gillis Gilkerson told me what went wrong and what needed to be fixed. They did a complete interior remodel by November so I was back in my home for the holidays. I never had to worry. I knew they would do a quality job and they did.”

~ Denny Dempsey,
Salisbury Resident

“Over the years Gillis Gilkerson has handled a variety of jobs for Cato Gas & Oil ranging from new construction of convenience stores to remodeling of office buildings. I have always been satisfied with the timelines of the work, quality of construction, and ability to stay on budget.”

~ Michael Abercrombie Jr.,

“The building is 100 years old and has continued to deteriorate for the last 40 years. To be honest, I wasn’t very positive about trying to save the building in the beginning.I thought it was a waste of time and money. When Gillis Gilkerson started working with our engineers and demonstrated experience with this type of project, I was relieved to say the least. They had contractors lined up and everything went according to plan. I would be tickled to work on another project with Gillis Gilkerson.”

~ Bob Donnelly,
Snow Hill Public Works Director
