Our Name & Logo

Enthusiastically Working Together In A Successful Manner

Gung-Ho means to enthusiastically “work together” in a successful manner to create something new where the synergetic whole is greater than the sum of its parts or, simply stated, “1 + 1 = 3.”

Our Gung-Ho Logo

The two interacting boomerangs in our logo represent the synergy of “working together.”

Our logo is also a loosely shaped “G” for “Gung-Ho,” and a positive upward sloping arrow to indicate successful growth or swimming upstream to disrupt the status quo.

Our Gung-Ho Attitude

Over the years, Gung-Ho has gained a reputation for its positive – one might even say “gung-ho” – attitude about doing whatever it takes to meet its clients’ needs.
