Our Team

Gary & Sue

Gary Ross loves business.   It is where solutions are implemented through excellent quality, correct pricing, and good service.  Over the past quarter century, Gary has developed three businesses that were recognized as leaders in their business niches.  He is in his ninth year of Shading Your World and Brightening Your Day.  His inspiration comes from three family members who have been leaders in the business of Shade solutions for well over twenty years.   He awakens every day looking forward to providing excellent solutions and great service to every person he meets. Gary, a long time High Pointer, summated Alaska’s Denali in 2015.

Sue is the kind voice you will probably initially speak to when you call Shade Your World. She recently retired from over 30 years as a corporate attorney and now enjoys keeping in contact with people through the many associations she makes through our family business.


Dick & Margie

Dick and Margie Ross opened a business --- serving the St Louis region --- in 1993.  It was the first dealership in the country dedicated to selling only Retractable Awnings.  In their first year, two awnings were sold.   Yet, by the year 2000, they were recognized as the Midwest Dealer of the year; a title they have retained almost every year since then.  Through their hard work and through their love of meeting new people, they have inspired their son, Gary, to approach Shade solutions with the same enthusiasm.  After twenty years of Shading Your World, Margie and Dick recognized it was time to allow Gary to have as much fun with the business as they have had.


Karen Nimock

Gary’s “Irish sister” Karen --- each year they’re the same age for five days  --- sells more retractable awnings than anyone in the nation.   Her company, SunSaver, has been Shading Denver, Colorado since 1995.  Her expertise is exemplary and has inspired and educated dozens of persons throughout the country.



Gene Jordan
Sales Consultant

Before selling Shade products, Gene owned and ran a dry cleaning business.  After retiring from that business, he began selling Shade products on a  part-time basis and is still at it 8 years later.  For those customers that have been blessed to meet Gene, they know he is absolutely incredible and makes everyone he meets his friend.  Gene loves the outdoors!  He is an avid skier, camper, golfer, fisherman, and quite the handyman.  He especially enjoys visiting his grandchildren.  We all try to model after him as an incredible leader in living life to the fullest.
