Michael Gillum, President

Duties: Awning and Shade Design, Project Management, & Sales

Michael Gillum was introduced to the industry while working for the oldest awning company in Sacramento. Mike learned the business from the bottom up and has become the region's shade and awning design expert. In his early years in the business Mike became an extraordinary craftsman in his fabrication of awnings, shade devices, canopies and specialized covers.

Mike is also a nationally recognized sailboat skipper and the current class President of the Thistle Class Association. His knowledge of the relationship between the sailboats metal spars and its fabric sails has given him a unique understanding of the dynamics of fabric shapes and functions.

Using this knowledge has allowed GPS Speciality Construction, Inc. to be innovative in their design of fabric shade structures such as our Shade Sails and our Tensioned Fabric Structures. This innovation has helped our company win a number of industry awards.

Currently Michael Gillum's main focus at GPS is that of being the lead company contact with prospective customers. When Mike meets with a client, the client is met with one of the most knowledgeable awning and shade experts in the industry. Mike's duties also involve the hands on project management of our awning projects.

And, if you own or race a Thistle, Snipe, Day Sailer, or Lido Sail Boat, Mike has designed (and GPS fabricates) the best top and bottom boat covers that money can buy.
