Gayle’s first introduction to branded items was when she held a position in marketing for Gibson Guitar in Nashville, TN, and was purchasing them. After moving on in 1997 she found herself on the other side of the desk selling branded items, and has been doing this for almost 23 years now. Her first business was from a “cold” call at Johnston & Murphy, a division of Genesco, and she has maintained that relationship all these years. Gayle has been associated with a few distributors as an independent contractor and has recently affiliated with Offbeat Productions. Her account list is varied with businesses that include the Grand Ole Opry & Ryman, Evolve Companies, residential communities located primarily on the East Coast, creative shops, law firms in Chicago and numerous others. Gayle moved to Chicago to be closer to her son, Dillon, and his wife and to experience everything the city has to offer. Her favorite things to do are to hang out with friends & family, attend live theatre, enjoy the city’s beautiful architecture, spend time along the miles of lake shore and to be open to new experiences every day. Gayle’s strong background in the business can help you grow yours!
