Our Team



Tripp Gebhard, BFA


What do you do (in the context of work at PWM)?

Partner, team jokester, managing and growing PWM Denver with the personal approach and care that has made PWM so successful in St. Louis.

How do I spend my time outside of PWM?

My life outside of PWM can be summed up in one word, family. My wife Dawnya and I have been blessed with three wonderful children. We live a very active Colorado lifestyle that involves a lot of team sports, year- round mountain activities and time spent with family and friends in my hometowns of Denver and St. Louis.

What is one of your greatest accomplishments (as it relates to work)?

The beginning and the end of my self-worth is helping other people. Truly understanding this is my biggest accomplishment.

What are your values and how do they inform your career?

I have two mantras by philosopher Dr. Ahbeg Larc that I repeat to myself and others several times a day.

1.The beginning and end of my self-worth is dependent on serving others.
2.Love people exactly as they are and not as I would have them be.

Who are you?

I am active… love skiing, mountain and road biking, spending time with family. I love the family aspect of skiing and hiking, when we can all be together and enjoy spending that time doing something we love. We are a dog family too; Elway and Piper – our loves.

What is a fun, unique fact about yourself that people likely don’t know?

I’ve traveled to all 50 States – in large part touring with the Grateful Dead in the late 80’s.

What is your favorite motivational quote?

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. – Calvin Coolidge
