  • Name: My name is Regina, but it’s Gina for me.
  • Residence: Marietta, GA
  • Approach: I listen closely to what our clients say and, more importantly, what they don’t say. I take a look at situations from different perspectives to understand all points-of-view. It’s how I generate the most effective results. I foster creative, big-picture concepts yet scrutinize every detail. Our clients should be memorable – that’s our job. When you’re happy – I’m happy. To me, it’s more than just a job
  • Strength: Creative concepting and event management
  • Past Life: In 1996, I headed to Atlanta with dreams of a career with the Atlanta Braves. With no batting average and little marketing experience, it was Ben Carter Properties/CNM Associates/Ben Carter Associates who saw my true marketing potential. Here, I climbed the ladder to eventually pioneer marketing initiatives. A move to Ronus Properties put me at its marketing helm until 2004. It was time for my own gig – insideOut marketing. It was a success story only to become an even greater one when I merged with BouncePath in 2006. Every page in this story afforded me great insight on life and business. For that, I’m grateful.
