Gary and his family immigrated to the US from Belarus in 1978. He lived with 8 family members in a studio apartment in Queens, New York, before relocating to Edison, New Jersey. Gary often calls himself a “purebred entrepreneur,” having successfully started a lemonade franchise at age 7 and eventually selling tens of thousands of dollars worth of baseball cards and toys throughout his high school career.
At 14, he joined his family business bagging ice for $2/hr. When Gary identified “the internet” as a land-grab opportunity in the late ’90s, he transitioned his father’s local liquor store into one of the first e-commerce platforms for alcohol in the country resulting in explosive top-line growth. Renaming the business to “Wine Library,” Gary grew his father’s company from $3-60MM in sales during his tenure at Wine Library.
After growing his family business through what Gary calls “underpriced attention,” including the impact of content, e-commerce, email marketing, and Google AdWords, Gary began his own journey of producing original business content as the voice of entrepreneurship online.
Gary is currently the chairman of VaynerX, a modern-day media and communications holding company, and the active CEO of VaynerMedia, a full-service advertising agency servicing Fortune 100 clients across the company’s 4 locations. Today, Gary has more than 12M combined followers across social media. He’s the host of The GaryVee Audio Experience, a top 100 global podcast, and host of #AskGaryVee, a business and advice Q&A show on both YouTube and Facebook.
Gary is a highly sought after public speaker, a 5-time New York Times bestselling author, as well as a prolific angel investor with early investments in companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Venmo, and Uber. The list of his accomplishments, business endeavors, and charitable donations truly goes on and on!
