Gil was the first person in Ireland to be accredited by Facebook as an official Facebook Marketing Consultant Partner in 2019, and is currently the only person to have earned this title on the whole island.
He graduated from Lancaster University with a BSc Hons in Marketing in 2003. Having spent 14 years in various Sales and Marketing roles and managing businesses for other people, Gil decided it was finally time to do something for himself.
In May 2017, he founded Run DMG, which has grown from a freelance consultancy into a boutique Facebook advertising agency spending in excess of $10m a year for clients across the US, UK, and Ireland, mainly eCommerce brands.
He would probably admit to being a bit of a Facebook Ads geek but in his spare time, Gil enjoys taking advantage of living in such a vibrant capital city as Belfast, playing American Football and watching 'normal' football, which has become much more enjoyable recently having been a long-suffering Liverpool fan from the age of four...
