When others play checkers, we play chess.

In Memory of Gershon Kekst
A Note from Laurel Strategies CEO
Alan FleischmannGershon Kekst
I have admired Gershon Kekst since I was 13 years old. In its heyday, Gershon’s firm, Kekst & Co., was iconic. Throughout his career, Gershon was the trusted adviser to many of the world’s greatest leaders. But far more than the “man behind the man,” he was a true leader and visionary in his own right who profoundly changed his industry. He was also an extraordinary community leader.
