We are delighted to announce the launch of the Member Spotlight series, where we will feature one of our chapter members. Below is episode 1 - an interview with George Brezny of GB Marketing Research Solutions conducted by Marcie Berenson.
What duties does your current job position include? I founded GB Marketing Research Solutions, LLC, a company that has a vision that the customer’s voice must be heard.
How did you first come to work in market research? I took a marketing class and moved to market research from accounting. In my first position I was hired because “someone knew someone” who helped me. I worked at Nielson, Florida Blue Cross and the U.S. Army before opening GB Marketing Research Solutions, LLC. I am interested in potentially mentoring college students in the future myself.
What do you do in your spare time - hobbies or activities? I am a huge Mets and Giants fan! When I am not watching sports, and have the time, I love to play golf.
What would others be surprised to know about you? I went back to school at night to complete my MBA after one of my positions was downsized. Another fun fact is that I am a musician! One day when I retire I plan to join a band.
Favorite book or movie? Favorite book is The Third Wave by Steve Case- An Entrepreneur's Vision of the Future. Favorite movie is Field of Dreams.
