Gary Christensen has been with RSMeans/Reed Construction Data since 1994. Currently, he holds the position of Seminar Delivery Specialist, teaching RSMeans CostWorks CD and Means CostWorks.com live and online. Beginning his career at RSMeans as a shipping clerk, Mr. Christensen has worked in the Finance, Sales, and Customer Service Departments, but it was within the Software Support Group that Gary found his niche. Working on the CostWorks Help Desk for five years gave him a strong technical knowledge that led to his writing the original CostWorks CD and Means CostWorks.com Help Files and Seminar workbooks. His prior experience with an online professional management organization, with responsibility for providing professional development for teachers, made him a perfect candidate for becoming the number one instructor for RSMeans CostWorks CD and Means CostWorks.com products. Gary was also a key player in the development of the self-paced web training version of CostWorks in 2008, a first of its kind for RSMeans. Mr. Christensen instructs over 30 CostWorks training programs annually.
