FINAL (2)-1Dieter Gable

Chief Executive Officer

After collaborating with TBConsulting on numerous projects, Dieter Gable joined the company as CEO in 2008. He brings more than 30 years of systems and consulting experience to TBConsulting.

Much of his previous experience focused on developing genuinely impactful long-term strategies and outcomes for clients.

Dieter graduated from the University of Arizona and has remained involved in his alma mater. Dieter has a strong sense of giving back to the community, whether through advisory roles for private company boards or volunteering his time with local charities in Arizona. Dieter also takes his passions to a higher level through his enthusiasm for aviation as a Lifetime Blue Blazer with the Fighter Country Partnership Foundation, a group of individuals committed to supporting the men, women, families, and mission of Luke Air Force Base. When not at the helm of TBC, Dieter enjoys traveling the world and hopes to check these off his bucket list: Antarctica, Petra, Seychelles, hiking Kilimanjaro, going on safari in Kenya, and skiing on every continent.

Paul is passionate about training—technology moves faster than ever before--thus, learning new skills and staying sharp are the only ways to stay ahead of the constant advances. His pursuit of operational excellence is the driving factor that guides him and his team as they implement the core values of TBConsulting: Passion, Partnership, and Innovation.

A native of Arizona, Paul is a proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps. He enjoys giving back to his community by volunteering with the Special Olympics.
