Christopher Garber, Gauze CEO and Co-Founder

Christopher Garber

CEO and Co-Founder

Chris Garber is the CEO and Co-Founder who brings his multi-disciplinary vision to Gauze from his background in the US Army, international competitions in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Executive Protection which required him to travel the world —and sometimes be hospitalized abroad. Having competed in, traveled to and worked in close to 50 countries and all seven continents as well as proudly served in the United States Army where he was the III Corps Wrestling Champion, Garber understands the need to stay healthy while traveling. In 2008, he won the Brazilian national championship in jiu-jitsu yet by 2012, he suffered a major medical setback caused by a US physician that left him determined to ensure that all patients are treated with the utmost care and transparency. Garber graduated from Kent State University where he majored in education and completed the St. Joseph's University Entrepreneurial Bootcamp for Veterans (EBV). Following completion of EBV, Garber and Gauze were selected to be included in the veterans entrepreneur incubator, Bunker Labs. He is passionate about keeping people healthy, safe, and prepared for any situation.
