Jerry loves asking hard questions—drilling down to uncover information, motivation and, ultimately, the solutions that serve our clients. It’s all part of achieving the “authentic dialogue” that’s so important to an effective working relationship.

As the founder of Mad Ave Group and its agencies, Jerry understands what it takes to get an idea off the ground and grow it into a successful business. And while his passions have always included sales and marketing, he’s added many other skills along the way, from business development to mentoring and communication training.

He directs our agency’s growth, ensures its financial stability, and protects its culture. He participates in client strategy meetings, serves as a marketing consultant for a few of our firm’s premier clients, and actively recruits new talent to join our team.

Jerry is a founding member of the Customer Experience Marketing Alliance and a pioneering member of the On Hold Messaging Association. He’s worked with The Toledo Area Business Network, The Chief Executive Boards, The Young Entrepreneur Society, and served as a trustee for The Huntington Community Center.

A past President of the Toledo Chapter of The American Advertising Federation, Jerry received the organization’s highest honor in 2012, The Silver Medal Award. In 2016, he was inducted into the Entrepreneurial & Business Excellence Hall of Fame.
