Club FoundING Member 19 | aUGUST 25, 2015


Mark founded Giddings and Associates in 1990, and developed a niche in sophisticated tax and business consulting, becoming one of the most-respected CPAs in the nation, with a unique distinction of serving clients on all 7 continents.

In January 2022, Mark sold his firm to Widmer Roel, another Fargo-based CPA firm, founded in 1973. Mark spent a few months assisting with the transition, but now enjoys full-time retirement from his home in the Cormorant Lakes area. Mark has led numerous discussions for our Club over the years and we hope that we can pull him from the dock to lend his insight and experience to many more.

Mark, congratulations on a stellar career and a successful exit from your company – and THANK YOU for your long-time support and contribution to our Club!

Member 31 | September 2, 2015


Upon graduation from NDSU, Bob went to work for Green Giant Co in Le Sueur, MN for 4 yrs, before returning to Fargo to join the family business in 1972. 

The company was founded in 1915 by the late Robert Gibb Senior, who immigrated to the United States from his native Scotland. Born and raised in an industrial community, his interests and talent directed him toward a career in the mechanical industry. Following World War II, Mr. Gibb’s four sons joined him in the business, accelerating the expansion and diversification of the firm.

Today, the Gibb company remains a family-run corporation, with two of Robert Gibb’s grandsons as the owners. With multi-million dollar commercial and industrial construction projects, the people at Robert Gibb & Sons understand that excellence isn’t just a goal, it’s a responsibility.

Robert Gibb & Sons is a leading full-service mechanical contractor in the Midwest specializing in plumbing, heating, air conditioning, and electrical services.
