George Escobedo

president 

At the early age of 8 years old, George worked delivering phone books in the city of Chicago.  He was a born entrepreneur.  After finding success in the automotive industry managing direct mail campaigns for automotive dealerships, George strongly believed he could create a business model of his own that would help Hearing Dispensers find new customers and grow their businesses!  He and his wife, Cerise, dove in head first and went out looking for dispensers who wanted to be a part of their exciting new company.  That was nearly 21 years ago and Chicago Advertising and Marketing is going strong.  George is challenged everyday with creating new and innovative ways to move companies forward.

With success comes gratification.  George will tell you everyday how grateful he is to his CAM Team who have dedicated themselves to making CAM a GREAT company; and to the clients who have put their trust in him to take their businesses to the next level. 

Most of you know George spends nearly all of his time with his best friend and business partner, Cerise. However he does enjoy refinishing antique furniture pieces.  George has a deep love for animals.
