I have received an award for an outstanding affiliate from another company located in Boston. We covered most of their work here in New York.
What drove you to work or create this company/organization?
I have been in this industry since 1985. I ran my other company for almost 15 years. I like this industry. Being on both sides of the fence, driving and being behind the desk. Most of all I still like getting out there and meeting people. I am a people person.
What upcoming or annual events, promotions or sales would you like to promote?
For GANYC it's always a promotion. There is a special rate in place at all times.
