Financial Services Specialist

Edye Kates joined Gunderson Capital Management in September of 2018, bringing over two decades of experience as a client relations and service industry provider.

As the firm’s Financial Services Specialist, Edye is typically the first point of contact and an internal resource for those interested in working with Gunderson Capital Management.  She schedules client appointments, workshop registrations, and supports those who would like to know more about our products and services.

Edye earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Northern Arizona University and spent the early part of her career in the marketing and advertising sector.

In 2000 Edye and her husband started an outdoor mobile advertising business where she was able to demonstrate her expertise in marketing, project management, accounting, and vendor relations. Although no longer involved in the day-to-day activities, she gained a profound insight into the value of the customer relationship and experience.

Edye and her husband Jeff reside in Scottsdale, Arizona with their three beautiful children, Dalton, Alyssa, and Jeremy.  She enjoys yoga classes, DIY projects, and creating memories with her family and friends.
