Get To Know Our Keynote Speaker: Gary Vaynerchuk
Meet Gary Vaynerchuk, a 36 year-old New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author and world renowned keynote speaker.
From early on, Gary was recognized as a business-minded kid. His first real shot at the business world was at his father’s brick and mortar wine store. With an entrepreneur’s spirit, Gary wanted to take his father’s business to new heights. And E-commerce was the way to go. In 2007, Gary went ahead and launched winelibrary.com, growing the family business from $3 million to a whopping $45 million in just a few short years.
With social media dominating the internet field, Gary used that as a platform to transform the company. Dubbed as a “Social Media Sommelier,” the legendary BusinessWeek magazine included him on their list of the top 20 people every entrepreneur should follow.
His 2009 book release, “Crush It! Why Now Is the Time to Cash in on Your Passion,” hit the NYT, WSJ, and AP bestselling lists in its first week of publication. It strategizes how to follow your passion to build your own personal brand. His 2011 book, “Thank You Economy,” a second NYT bestseller, describes the effects of social media for your business.
After the release of his first book, Gary founded Vanermedia. With Gary at its helm, Vanermedia has helped numerous Fortune 500 companies – including Campbell Soup Company, PepsiCo, and the NY Jets – optimize their social media and digital branding.
Gary has been featured as keynote speaker at events like Inc 500 Seminar 2011 and the RE/Max Annual Convention. We’re proud to have him featured as keynote speaker at LTB 2013 – the nation’s premier Jewish business conference.
