At the early age of 8 years old, George worked delivering phone books in the city of Chicago. He was a born entrepreneur. Later in life, he worked for a company in advertising and found his passion and his wife! Together, they went out looking for businesses who wanted to be a part of their exciting new company. That was 22 years ago and Chicago Advertising & Marketing is still going strong. George is challenged every day with creating new and innovative ways to move companies forward using direct mail advertising.
Most of you know George spends nearly all of his time with his best friend and business partner Cerise and also his granddaughter Lily. However, when he needs a little “me time” you can find him in his garage refinishing antique furniture and creating beautiful wood pieces of art.
They say for every Ying there is a Yang. At Chicago Advertising and Marketing, that Yang is Cerise! With her adventurous spirit and openness to new ideas, there is no limit to what CAM will do to help their clients find their strong positioning in the marketplace. Most days, Cerise works behind the scenes to make sure the CAM Ship is well oiled. From proofing and editing to making sure the staff is happy, her responsibilities are endless. Cerise recognizes that there are many small pieces that make up a successful company. Cerise’s attention to detail and expertise in the industry is CAM’s secret weapon.
Cerise has been a world traveler since her teens. She enjoys going to different countries to learn about their cultures and sampling different foods, and now her and George travel the world together. No matter how busy she gets, she always makes time for her granddaughter, Lily, who loves going to amusement parks and spending the day riding the biggest rollercoasters.
