Management of Gopher is excited to use this milestone to highlight what has been achieved in the past year. Revenue grew over 5,000% year over year when compared to year ended 2017 and Gopher has further developed its asset base, which is expected to support future operations and growth.

Mr. Pickard also spent over nine years with Coopers & Lybrand, L.L.P., (currently PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP) where he focused on auditing companies in the insurance, high-tech and manufacturing industries.  Mr. Pickard earned his Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Master of Accountancy from Brigham Young University.

“Having worked with Gopher during 2017 and seeing the transformation first hand, I am excited to have the opportunity to become part of the team,” stated Kevin Pickard.
