Blog: AWOL No More: GPB Capital Holdings' CEO and Other Executives Back Online - 2020-01-15
After we reported GPB Capital Holdings CEO David Gentile as having gone AWOL from both his company's own website and LinkedIn, Mr. Gentile has reappeared on LinkedIn. Gentile's LinkedIn page showing him as a partner at his father's Long Island CPA firm of Gentile, Pismeny, and Brengel remains posted on LinkedIn.
Did the Church of Scientology intervene to handle David Gentile's blow from social media? In Scientology a "blow" is defined as any unauthorized departure from one's assigned post. Part of a CEO's job is to be the public face of the company. David Gentile has not issued any kind of statement in his own name since 2018. Instead, he has had his PR spokespeople do it.
We further reported that the "Our Team" link on GPB's corporate website had been removed. This link allowed the public to see to the firm's C Suite executives. This link has also been restored. Nevertheless, following the resignation of GPB's internal audit committee in late November 2019, the executive strata at GPB is now down to four people and one Interim Chief Compliance Officer.
