Gordy learned the family clothing business from his parents Ron and Lucille Engel and has been successfully operating the store from its roots in Wayzata to its new Plymouth location. A true third-generation family business, three of his daughters and his only son have come alongside him to help run The Foursome. Gordy's community involvement includes coaching countless sports teams, leadership positions on the Wayzata Chamber and Crime Coalition, and being an elder for many years at his church. He has been voted Wayzata's "Person of the Year" and is a recipient of the Jim Fish award. He is currently enjoying the opportunity of a lifetime to be a coach for the Wayzata High School football team and assist head coach Brad Anderson, who Gordy coached as a youth!
Strong values of faith and family are evident in everything that Gordy does. He and his wife Nancy have six children (Nicole, Keri, Christine, Beth, Kathryne and Michael) and 14 grandchildren. When not at the store, he enjoys a round of golf and chopping wood to relax.
"Humility and faith in God have guided Gordy Engel and his family to success at The Foursome"
