Gerard's Profile

Experience Summary

I have 10 years of track time ranging from experiential, guerrilla, and buzz marketing, to large scale event production. I've coordinated teams for various programs in the past with great contribution and success, and know how to comprise and draw optimal results from my event teams, as I have links to high quality staff and vendors in many markets. I've staffed and managed countless events/promotions in both major and secondary markets, and know the quality of personnel you need for your promotions. You need a person that is dependable, personable, intelligent, and professional, with great decision making ability. Personally I don't think that’s too much to ask so I'm going to provide that. I hold a degree in Broadcast Communications and have tons of experience as a broadcast DJ and in A/V production, so I am very tech savvy, media friendly, and an effective communicator. I have liquor experience as a wine & spirits ambassador for Gallo, and Miller, amongst others. My event management experience is extensive, with programs for Kahlua, FOX, Phillips, and dozens of others leading teams of 2 - 20 ambassadors. I've managed mobile promotions for TLC network, US Cellular, Burger King, and the US Army. I've worked trade shows in the past for Xerox, Sprint, Embarq Logistics, GE, and Mars. I've served as a product specialist for Volkswagen, General Motors, Cadillac, and Ford. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
