Gilbert Family on Display: A Day with Dean – Gilbert
Download Our Trade Shows 101 Guide

Hello readers!  My name is Emily, and I have been working with the Marketing Department as their summer intern.  The Gilbert family has been incredibly welcoming throughout my first few weeks!  It’s been so wonderful getting to know everybody and I want to share my experience.  Every other Monday, I will release a new story from the“Gilbert Family on Display” series, highlighting a different team member each time.

To kick off the series, I’d like to start off with Dean Lambros, as he was one of the first people I was introduced to and served as a friendly face from the very beginning!  Dean is the Graphics Manager here at Gilbert and has been working here for almost 11 years.  When he first started he said, “It was humbling!  This building is intimidating, and the projects are intense.” Dean started off doing vinyl work with some knowledge of Photoshop.  He quickly moved on to become a graphic specialist, doing production, for four years before being offered his manager position.  Dean’s often said that being at Gilbert was the best education he could have ever received.

“I’ve learned more here than I ever would’ve at college and they gave me a career…something when I was younger I never thought I’d have.”

He is extremely dedicated and proves to be immensely passionate about not just the production of his work, but the quality of any project he works on.  Dean talked of the high standard set by Gilbert Displays and the employees’ unwillingness to break that standard.  He said, “Never, ever accept mediocrity. Never settle for less.”  He also discussed that the most rewarding part about his position and working at Gilbert is the sense of accomplishment.  When asked about the most rewarding part about being a member of the Gilbert team, he responded, “The friendships.  I’ve made some really good friends in this place. A lot of the people in this place have been there for me.  I lost my father while working here, and received so much support from my Gilbert family.  I’ve been through a lot and they’re always there for me.”

Dean is one of the many incredible employees we have here at Gilbert.  When asked what he would like our clients to know, as we are celebrating our 30-year anniversary, he responded:

“I would want them to know that at the core of the company is a personal investment in the well-being of our clients.  We genuinely care about the projects we work on. I’m proud to say I’m part of the Gilbert team.  We do amazing work!  There are some pretty amazing people here.  Not only do we work on top-notch products for top-notch clients, but we do it with a top notch-team.”
