#WeAreGapInc: Meet David

PeopleGap Inc. blogsComment

More than the clothes we create, Gap Inc. is defined by its people. Meet some of the talented people who make Gap Inc. great. #WeAreGapInc

David Hayer Gap Inc EVP Global Sustainability.jpg

What do you do for Gap Inc.? 

I have the privilege of finding and improving ways that our business can advance the roughly one million people we touch. I do this with a great team through our sustainability initiatives, our Gap Foundation programs, and strengthening government relations across the globe.

What inspires you?

Perseverance.

Style personality

Adaptable – I like wearing suits with sneakers. And I like socks that aren’t boring.

Go-to outfit

A crisp, white button-up shirt, a dark BR blazer, and Gap jeans with colorful Old Navy socks. Maybe a pocket square if my socks are a little more straight-forward that day.

The jeans are important. I have pairs of Gap jeans that have taken me all around the world. It’s about more than just the jeans – it’s about the experiences that those jeans have seen; the experiences I've had while wearing them.

All-time favorite piece of clothing

A $1 stainless steel bracelet I purchased near the Golden Temple in Amritsar.

Last purchase

An engine belt for my ’68 drop top Camaro. She limps around sometimes, kind of like how I do after playing basketball.

Favorite Gap Inc. moment

I sat across the table from Doris Fisher and Dianne Feinstein at an event and listened to each tell stories while the other smiled large enough to light up the city.

First job

Grocery store cart pusher.

Always puts you in a good mood

Shooting hoops with my two boys… they’re 13 and 17. I’m hoping I have a few more years before they’re too embarrassed to play with me.

Epiphany moment

When I was living in Dehli with my family, all four of us would drive together each morning to drop my kids off at school. We noticed that there was a little girl - maybe 7 or 8 years old - who was at one of our regular stop lights everyday. We started bringing extra food for her, and she became a regular part of our day.

She really made an impression on all of us, and she reminded me that taking small actions can make a big difference in someone’s life. I was put on this earth to give back, and I’m lucky that my job allows me to live my purpose.

Something people don’t know about you

‘Stitch’ from the movie ‘Creed’ was my kickboxing coach. But I can’t get my leg up beyond counter-height these days.

What’s your favorite thing about Gap Inc.?

The family. The dedication of the Fisher family and their investment in our communities is something I’ve never seen at another company. It’s what makes Gap Inc. feel like a family.

What makes your job unique?

They actually pay me to help people and improve our planet – it’s crazy!

What’s your favorite thing about your job?

The diversity of activities and interactions. From meeting P.A.C.E. participants and This Way Ahead interns, to connecting with both local and global leaders, I enjoy connecting with real people to make progress in a meaningful way.

Why Gap Inc.?

It’s the total package… great brands with a global presence, a culture rooted in values that are aligned with mine, and limitless career opportunities. I love Gap Inc.!
