Gerry is a former marketing executive from P&G, Miller Coors, Red Robin, Quiznos and more. He now speaks to companies and sales teams who want to grow revenue in crowded industries during times of great change. He believes any company, of any size can be as effective as billion dollar brands, with a few key strategies.

He teaches a simple, but powerful, framework of influence that gets customers to choose you vs. all the other options. He’s known for the Power of BECAUSE - the missing link that generates sales and launches companies out of the sea of sameness.

He spent years as marketing and strategy executive building brands at P&G such as Tide, Mr. Clean, Spic-n-Span and Crisco. Then he managed the Coors Light brand, was VP of Marketing for Quiznos, and most recently VP of Marketing for Red Robin.

His experience as an executive with billion dollar brands like P&G, Coors and Red Robin are the foundation from which he has created this framework of influence.
