Library Director Crosby Kemper III conducts a public conversation with Gail of Gail’s Harley-Davidson.
A native of Belton, Missouri, Gail worked as a teenager at her father’s motorcycle shop and entered the male-dominated white-collar business world as a Harley-Davidson finance manager. In 2000 she purchased the dealership from her parents, becoming one of the few female Harley-Davidson dealership owners. Today Gail’s is the largest Harley dealership in the Midwest and one of the top in the country. In 2006 it was named one of the Top 10 Small Businesses in Kansas City by the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce.
This event is part of the Library’s Cradle of Entrepreneurs series, with a new emphasis on Kansas City women business owners and founders. Co-sponsored by the Central Exchange.
