Passionate about teamwork and bringing ideas to life, he has led strategy development across a variety of categories in both large agencies and independent boutiques. Much of Gil’s planning experience was developed in Asia. Having earned his MBA at the International University of Japan, Gil was one of the first non-Japanese account planners to work in Tokyo. Gil also spent three years as a communications manager for Adidas Japan. At Adidas, he applied the rigors of account planning to all communication disciplines in the soccer and running categories . . . leading to innovative marketing programs and unprecedented success in a historically difficult market. Gil is married and has three sons (all in college. . . oh boy) and is a martial arts enthusiast and a self-described “sneaker pimp” with an impressive (if unorthodox) collection of footwear.
