I’m excited to officially announce the launch of Gil Media Co., a digital media agency based in Los Angeles, California.
Over the past couple of years, I’ve had a growing desire to build something that’s bigger than myself or what any employer can offer.
As I reflect on the last 10 years of my career, the day I knew I was destined for bigger and better opportunities, was the day I became unemployed in the banking industry due to the recession.
It was my then little self funded start-up (which grew to help 1,000’s of working professionals find jobs) that eventually led me to have a successful 6-year run in corporate America where I led social media for brands like Winn-Dixie, Save-A-Lot, LinkedIn, and most recently BMC Software.
Some of the highlights within those brands that I will forever be proud of are: starting social media from the ground up at Winn-Dixie, aiding in the growth of Save-A-Lot’s loyalty program to over 1 million users, working for LinkedIn and then BMC Software where my team and I launched a global employee advocacy program.
However, while accomplishing these feats of professional success, I’ve felt that I have much more to offer than to work for a single employer or brand which is why I am launching Gil Media Co. I know the challenges that marketers face in their jobs. I know that strategic partnerships often make the difference between success & failure for campaigns, and I also know that getting the C suite to buy into marketing efforts can be a challenge, as is staying relevant online.
