Ernie is a hyper-creative branding expert. He began his professional career in 1993 as a concept artist and designer for Ad agency DSW/ Euro RSCG. Two years later he founded a small creative production studio that quickly grew to serve small and large businesses including regional convenience store giant Maverik, Inc.
Fifteen years later he took the role of Maverik’s Executive Director of Marketing where his brand leadership helped grow the company by 600%. His creativity and dynamic personality attracted the attention of the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Educational Content Committee where he was asked to serve for four years.
Ernie left Maverik in October of 2018 to consult and speak on branding full-time. He is highly skilled in advertising, loyalty programs, design, illustration, and video production.
Ernie never stands still. He’s also an Ironman triathlete, loves to exercise, do hot yoga, cook, write, illustrate, mountain bike, watch movies eat junk food and spend time with his family and 7 brothers. He’s also a former travel TV show host and is allergic to exercise. Yes. It’s a thing.
