ABOUT GATHER

ABOUT THE FOUNDERS

Family matters.

So does community.

In fact, to father and son team, Doug and Mack Cross, they’re almost synonymous.

As the founders of Four Oaks Property Group, Doug and Mack set out with a vision to create a venue where friends and families can engage in a casual, exciting atmosphere in which local restaurateurs and brewers hone their craft and do some delicious experimenting.

And so Gather GVL was born.

Hatched from the brain of Mack Cross, Gather GVL reflects his interest in adaptive reuse and sustainability. Additionally, Mack wanted to create a space in which his wife Ashley and young sons Haywood and Landon could frolic and thrive. Gather GVL is not only environmentally- friendly, it’s family-friendly as well. Both Doug and Mack are graduates of the University of Virginia, though Mack had the good sense to obtain a Masters in Real Estate Development from Clemson. Doug resides in downtown Greenville with his wife, Mary Beth, and enjoyed a successful 30 year career in the window manufacturing business before jumping into this new venture with his son.

Both Doug and Mack look forward to gathering with you at Gather GVL soon.

“As a West End Business, we love being surrounded by other fabulous local businesses.  Gather GVL will not only be an amazing place for us to grab a bite to eat (or drink), but will increase pedestrian foot traffic and bring new energy to Augusta Street.”
