Kat Kozitza
Director of Interactive
& Direct Marketing
SUPERVALU

"Gino is THE rock star you want to know. Of course he has the intelligence and experience to help businesses develop improved online capabilities. Agencies are full of people like that. What makes Gino different is his ability to plug into the business and get to the heart of the organization to form his recommendations. His corporate experience helps him appreciate that change is as much about the finances as it is about the emotions. He is equal parts teacher, coach, cheerleader, and guru. He’ll help you find the right answers, get the right support, and will work tirelessly to deliver the right results. I highly recommend him."

"Gino is one of the most talented and creative people I know in the space of interactive marketing and web platform develop. He constantly challenged the status quo for the benefit of the business and always did so did so respectfully and enthusiastically. Without the creativity and innovative thinking that Gino brought to the table every day, we would not have enjoyed the strong reputation and many accolades we received from owners, operators and industry competitors, worldwide."

Former VP, Marketing
Carlson Leisure Group

“I had the privilege of working with Gino on what was undoubtedly the largest and most complex initiative during my tenure at CLG, and could not have imagined a better partner, thought leader and executor. Gino brought much needed expertise and insight that quickly garnered respect from constituents with diverse perspectives, which was fundamental to making any progress. He then went further by providing the discipline and processes needed to move from the excitement of announcement to the deployment of a finished product. I sincerely hope to have the opportunity to work with Gino again--it will not only be a pleasure--I know the results will exceed any expectation.”

Lynn Clark
Director, Marketing
Travel Leaders Group

“Gino and I worked together during our time at Carlson Companies. I reached out to him for his vision and guidance on overhauling the www.carlsontravel.com Web site. He served as an executive leader and consultant on the project by providing the framework for how to develop the strategy, requirements, creative and development processes while keeping senior management and franchisees engaged and supportive. Gino and I worked together to build and lead a 15+ member cross-functional team that supported the project. In addition he connected me with several Web development resources that were responsible for bringing the Web site to fruition. The project was a massive undertaking and without Gino’s involvement I am certain it would not have gone as smoothly or successfully as it did. Since that project Gino continues to be a resource and a mentor for me. Given the chance I would gladly work with and/or for him in the future."

“Gino's talents are endless and his passion for web strategy and design are unmatched. He is a welcome addition to any project team, but probably best suited for the biggest challenges within the organization.

Lauren Mihajlov
Director, Brand Marketing
Caribou Coffee Company

“Gino is an exceptional web and online professional. In hiring him as a consultant, we were able to ramp up our online offerings and bring needed expertise in-house without hiring a headcount. Gino guided us through a completely re-built and relaunched website, maintaining and capitalizing on the look and feel of the brand while maximizing the shopping area and leading to increased sales and greater customer loyalty. Finally, while Gino is a terrific strategist, he's also more than willing to roll up his sleeves and execute when needed which was a tremendous asset to our team.”

"Gino's subject matter expertise regarding eCommerce, especially in the hospitality context, along with his strategic thinking capacity are a powerful and effective combination. Gino doesn't think only in terms of eCommerce. He develops strategies and tactics that integrate E Commerce programs into the overall go-to-market approach. He is responsive, client-focused and fun to work with... a great resource.”
