We Are “Your Brand Group”
Gary De Jesus – Co-Founder & Brand Strategist
Gary has been building and launching brands for over 30 years. He earned a Bachelor of Arts from Harvard University and a Masters in Marketing and Finance from New York University’s Stern School of Business. Combining what he learned from both programs, he understands why people do what they do and why they behave the way they do on a deeper level than most.
With his seven years in fashion design at Macy’s, 18 years in brand management at P&G, his time spent in an agency at MKTG and his experience teaching classes at Northern Kentucky University, Gary hasn’t just been a part of the launch of global brands, but he’s conceived, developed, launched and managed successful ones, too. Gary believes every brand is perfectly designed to achieve the results it deserves. He wants to help businesses and entrepreneurs thrive and he knows it takes more than creative design to do it. He’s taking everything he’s learned during his career and reapplying it in ways to build brands confidently.
