Gary is a gutsy, charismatic, hard working and gifted entrepreneur. Gary and his family immigrated to the US from Belarus in 1978. He lived with 8 family members in a studio apartment in Queens, New York, before relocating to Edison, New Jersey. At 14, he joined his family business bagging ice for $2/hr. When Gary identified “the internet” as a land-grab opportunity in the late 90’s he transitioned his father’s local liquor store into one of the first e-commerce platforms for alcohol in the country. Renaming the business to “Wine Library,” Gary grew his father’s company from $3-60MM in sales during his tenure at Wine Library. During his time at Wine Library, Gary Vaynerchuk started one of the first long-form episodic video shows on YouTube in 2006 called WineLibraryTV. Gary began angel investing in notable companies including Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Uber, Snap and Venmo. Vaynerchuk then co-founded VaynerMedia in 2009 (now over 800 employees). Gary has written 5 New York Times bestselling business books and today is one of the most sought after public speakers. Gary’s life ambition is the pursuit of buying the New York Jets.
