so does business.

Meet our Leaders

Douglas Gastich

President & General Manager

Coming up on 20 years’ experience in educational technology, Douglas has held key roles in creating educational media and developing new business programs and relationships. A graduate of Boston College, Douglas and his family have since moved to the West Coast and love it here. After hours, he loves playing chess with his son, Go Fish with his daughters and planning the next leg of his Pan-America motorcycle ride: Baja to Argentina.

Gary Brashear

Vice President of Sales and Customer Success

Gary considers it a privilege to lead and serve a dedicated team of sales, service and customer success professionals. A graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology with his degree in Applied Mathematics, he enjoys hiking with his wife and putting together events for their five children. On his bucket list, he includes traveling to the Island of Sicily, the home of his ancestors, and a Lopez Island bike tour.

Chris Kiggins

Director of Creative Development

Chris oversees custom course development and professional services for BlueVolt. She was most recently in charge of the internal creative team at Knowledge Learning Corp., and has also worked for Via Training, Waggener Edstrom, and Medicalogic on clients such as HP and Microsoft. She attended IVY School of Professional Art, where she majored in Advertising Art and Design, and has taken additional courses at Carnegie Mellon University. A self-described news junkie, she would love, one day, to leave her media devices behind and camp under the Northern Lights.

Keith Gerr

Director of Marketing

What gets Keith up in the morning? Authenticity. Using customer insights, behavioral data and pure gut feelings to create meaningful experiences that attract people to the BlueVolt brand. And when he gets home in the evening? Spending time with his family. Or ducking away to sculpt sound utilizing tube amps, germanium flavored fuzz and strange-sounding stompboxes. A lover of fine whiskey, he’d like one day to be able to make his own.

Pam Armistead


Pam is responsible for all aspects of the financial and accounting reporting, processes, and procedures. A graduate of UC Berkeley with an MBA in finance from University of Portland, she enjoys skiing, hiking and camping with her family. She hopes to one day make the trek to the Mt. Everest base camp.
