Our CEO, Jeff Gaus is a husband, a father of two adult sons, and a Godfather to his nephew and cousin. His passions are: his family, youth education, and economic development. He believes capitalism is a force for good that can be channeled to solve many of the world's biggest problems. He believes in work-life integration; meaning technology allows us to weave our personal life into our work and our work into our personal lives, and we as humans need to accept the full person in both spheres. He is an active woodworker/tinkerer and finds solace in his shop when he is doing unstructured design-build projects. He loves to cook, read, and enjoy the outdoors via hiking, skiing, golf, and occasionally boating.
Why did you join PCN?
I began The PCN because I believe people have the fundamental right to know the facts about the products they buy, consume, and use and I saw the opportunity to create a transparency product, company, and movement. We have a phenomenal opportunity to be a gigantic force for good in the world while building an innovative, successful, profitable, company, operated for the public good.
What is your tagline?
Think it, build it, do it, serve others.
What is your why?
I strive to be a husband, father, and servant leader who impacts the world through my thoughts, innovations, and actions to the best of my abilities.
What is your superpower?
I am an Apex Networker.
If PCN wasn't a part of your life, what would you be doing with that 'free' time?
I have a couple of "at bats" left in me, therefore I devote my time and intellect at very specific opportunities that will have dramatic impact on the world. The PCN didn't happen to me, it is happening because of me. I created it for one reason: it is what I am supposed to be doing right now, so I don't spend any time thinking about alternatives. This is a really BIG idea; there are a ton of challenges; it is really hard; but, the outcome is too important to ignore. I live by the philosophy of "decide what you think is right and stick to it." This is what I've chosen to do, period.
