If you know what AAF stands for (American Advertising Federation), then you know that getting an ADDY or AMY Award is a big deal – well, imagine if your work has racked up multiple Gold and Silver ADDYs and AMY awards over the past few years? That’s exactly the level of professional accomplishment The Studio’s own brand development manager, John Greske has achieved. In addition to his many accolades, he brings 25 years of experience, a fine arts background and a true passion for branding to his role. If you get the opportunity to work with John, just be sure to brush up on obscure movie trivia and quotes first or he’s liable to throw “Eskimo” at you as a test.

She may be known as the ‘mom’ or even the ‘grandma’ of her friend group, but to us, she’s the aunt who always has candy.

She organizes our events from start to finish, adding in her special wow-factor and creating unforgettable moments for agents.

Back in the States, if you find her awake after 7:30 pm, she’s probably busy crafting or tossing a frisbee to her adorable puppy, Leroy.

George Gibu

Gibu likes to think of the listing process as making a cake and he’s in charge of the toppings (the final touch being the client report). Along with his eye for details, a winning attitude and an infectious smile, Gibu likes to be helpful whenever possible. He has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and a master’s degree in business administration. And though he’s mastered these other disciplines, he can’t live without his favorite indulgence – ice cream. With all these desserts on his mind, it’s no wonder he’s got a reputation as a sweet guy.

Coffee, coffee and more coffee keeps this director of marketing on top of his game. Although who can blame him? Between being a father to four kiddos and overseeing a talented team of field marketing managers, it’s surprising he has time for it all! Based out of Flower Mound, TX, Jeremy oversees the delivery and execution of marketing strategies and initiatives that support Coldwell Banker NRT’s agent value proposition. Prior to joining The Studio, Jeremy was in the Air Force, and openly admits that he has a serious addiction to football. Although arguably, coffee still takes the number one spot (French Vanilla, please).

Among Adam’s many accomplishments are being a licensed real estate agent, a jazz guitarist, and he boasts to have ridden his bike across the state of Missouri, without guitar in hand we hope.

Though it may not seem like it, on any particular day you may catch Adam slam-dancing at a death metal concert or perfecting his moves at the skate park. Adam says his goal is to help real estate agents live exceptional lives with compelling marketing collateral. His attention to detail and can-do attitude set him apart, but around the office he’s best known for his dolphin imitation (seriously, ask him to do it). He maintains his Maine bonafides by playing in an ice-hockey league in Florida, and is as quick with the jokes as he is on the ice. One of his favorites? “You can tune a piano, but you can’t tuna fish.” (Har. Har. Har.)
