Gary Blauman is an employee in the legal department at Goliath National Bank. He worked at AltruCell Corporation before it merged with GNB, also in the legal department. He worked closely with Bilson and Marshall during the time of Marshall's internship at AltruCell. (Life Among the Gorillas)
Back when Marshall was still working for Nicholson, Hewitt & West, Barney told a story about Blauman: Barney witnessed Blauman being yelled at by Bilson. Blauman grew angry and declared he was quitting because he had made a lot of money on an IPO (initial public offering) when a cousin's website went public. He then attempted to pee on the conference table to show what he thought of the company, however he was unable to.
Following this, Barney claimed that "his cousin's website tanked, and then he became a janitor at an old folks' home, and then he moved into a one-room apartment above a bowling alley." Finally, Barney claimed that he died. According to Barney, the "Lesson of Blauman" is that one should not scream back at one's boss when being yelled at.
However, Blauman continues to be seen working with Barney and Bilson at GNB indicating that this story (or elements of it) was fictional, concocted by Barney to prove his point. (The Chain of Screaming)
Blauman has been known to play early-morning basketball at the company gym with Bilson and Marshall. (Sorry, Bro)

Notes and Trivia
- Taran Killam, who portrays Blauman, is the real-world fiancé of Cobie Smulders. They have a daughter together.
- Barney gives Blauman's first name as Gary in his story about the "Lesson of Blauman". Since elements of this story appear to be fiction, it is possible that Gary is not his actual first name.
