WHO WE ARE
Design Thinking for Your Success
PLX CORP was founded in 2020 when David Oliver introduced Gary Abram to the idea of joining him in creating a new type of think tank: one that would leverage their complimentary skills and experiences to benefit the various boards in the Kansas City region. David brings an unparalleled career in leading and advising non-profits and Gary offers his entrepreneurial and consulting expertise. Each has been deeply engaged in non-profit and for profit organizations.
A breadth of experience and expertise
Offering innovation and tools to improve governance, recruitment, accountability, process, visioning, internal controls, risk management, leadership development, and analytics. Plan. Lead. Execute.
The KC Star described Gary as a "serial entrepreneur," having started at least five businesses and helped many others launch. Obsessed with discovering why some teams do better than others, Gary sits on boards whose missions are higher ed, healthcare, careers for disabled and social justice.
David practices law with Berkowitz Oliver LLP but his passion is working with boards with particular interest in issues of diversity, belonging, inclusion and equity for the betterment of the region. His board commitments are too numerous for this short bio but include: AlignED; MRIGlobal; Wm Jewell College; DeLaSalle Charter H.S.; Tesseract Ventures; UMKC Trustees; Teach for America-KC; Spencer Art Museum; ArtsKC; Nonprofit Connect; Startland; The Francis Family Foundation; The Cross Foundation; Murphy Charitable Fund; Children's Mercy Hospitals; and The Civic Council of GKC.
