Gary Schettler, the principal of GVS Engage has led major organizations and companies, in multiple industries, through periods of substantial growth. Leading up to his appointment as a company president, he has held a variety of leadership positions in business development, engineering and program management.

GVS Engage is a part of a collaborating group of companies and individuals that support clients in strategy development, capture planning and execution in the sales process, and organizing and connecting with their human capital to achieve high levels of organizational performance over time.

GVS Engage is based in Waukesha, Wisconsin with associates in the Greater Milwaukee Area, Michigan, Virginia and Florida. While many consulting firms support business strategy development and/or client capture planning, few address the challenge of aligning Human Capital with the client’s strategy.

Two key partners provide GVS Engage with key proprietary methodologies:

Decision Mapping® – provides clients with a conceptual and literal “Map” of their customers’ decision process. GVS Engage members were introduced to Mapping® nearly 15 years ago. Utilizing the process, they have led many teams in successful capture efforts worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Now, through a direct relationship with The Decision Mapping Counsel, LLC, GVS Engage supports client company growth by application of the process and by providing them with training and licenses for continued use.


PI® – The Predictive Index – is a proven methodology that allows businesses to understand the factors driving members of their workforce. Scientific validation and a 60-year proven track record shows that business challenges large and small are no match for PI®’s unique approach to client education and knowledge transfer, which ensures swift adoption, direct ROI, and high impact on performance metrics.

Together these methodologies provide GVS Engage with highly leveraged and differentiating capabilities that help clients accelerate growth, and enhance individual and team performance.
