George Brymer Chief Creative Officer

George Brymer

Chief Creative Officer

George Brymer has always been inquisitive. It’s likely that his first spoken word as a child was, “Why?” That he’s never outgrown that curiosity is evident in his probing conversations with clients – and in his approach to creativity.

George was previously with The Image Group as its Chief Creative Officer. He’s a former banker and leadership coach. He has a Masters in Organizational Leadership from Lourdes University, and he now serves on the Lourdes board of directors. He also has considerable experience on area nonprofit boards. A part-time author, George has written and published two books.

Away from work, George enjoys golf and boot camp classes. He likes long weekends in Chicago and New York City and posting smart-alecky comments on social media.

Wondering “why” your marketing isn’t getting the results you desire? Call George. He’s got questions – and answers – for you.
