Jason Ross:  Chief Legal Officer

Jason has been promoted from EVP/General Counsel to Chief Legal Officer (CLO). He has always given 100% of himself to his duties regardless of his involvement outside of GMR. He possesses the highest commitment and excellence for GMR and has played a key role in raising the bar with clientele in the marketplace. Jason will continue his responsibilities in HR, Technology, and Legal, but will have additional strategic duties in Business Development.



Krisha Brooks, P.E.:  Chief Business Officer

Krisha has been promoted from SVP to Chief Business Officer (CBO). From day one of her GMR tenure, Krisha has brought a comfort and peace internally while having a tremendous impact on the external GMR client marketplace. “Yes, we can” became a coin phrase because of her. She has a servant’s heart and a mind for strategy and business. She possesses an MBA that affords professionalism in more areas than simply Business Development. Going forward the Business Development and Finance teams will be aligned under one umbrella. These two company functions will benefit greatly through closer alignment.


Jayson Killough:  Chief Operating Officer and President

Jayson has been promoted from SVP to Chief Operating Officer and President. Since his hire in 2014, there has been an elevation of teams, teammates, operational processes, and an inclusion of outside professional resources to coach and help the company develop. He has proven in his time at GMR that no matter what area he becomes involved with, company practices have elevated, employees have grown, and opportunities and skillsets have expanded. In addition to his Operational giftings, he has a clear vision for the days ahead. He has given GMR a full, all in, commitment to growth. Jayson is about the success of others, creating vision, and developing a practical pathway to implement that vision in GMR and out in the marketplace.

Jamie Killough will remain CEO and Chair of the Board but will no longer serve as President, continuing to serve GMR and foster a culture of joy, hope and peace, continuing the tradition of the founder and prior leadership.
