Meet Gil Gerretsen
Many people call Gil their "Marketing Oracle." He's an author, consultant, and speaker in the field of Scientific Marketing for privately-held companies ... and perhaps best known as the creator of the world's first Scientific Marketing process.
When you first meet Gil, or read his books, you'll be instantly aware that he's highly creative and energetic with a passion to mentor the founders and leaders of high-growth and high-impact companies across the globe.
Folks are often surprised to learn that he got his first taste for business creation when he, and a team of other high school students, created Canada's most successful student run company in 1973. Later, after finishing his schooling at the University of Calgary (Canada), and then a decade in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors fixing troubled ventures, he launched and sold his first business (a software company in Seattle) in the late 1980's. Since then he has launched, acquired, and sold other businesses. He has also personally mentored hundreds of entrepreneurs who use his techniques to launch, acquire, and grow their own businesses.
About The Medieval Lion
Many people have asked about the "medieval lion" icon visible on the upper left corner of every web page and on Gil's business cards. So here's Gil's explanation:
"Years ago, I delved into my family's ancestry (which I traced back to 1560) and discovered the Gerretsen Family Coat of Arms (below). As a Christian, I liked the symbolism of the lions (Lion of God) on the shield and adopted it as a type of personal logo."
