My Journey

 

My name is Al Getler and I am a seasoned media executive, speaker and entertainer.

I needed a car out of college and went to work at my local newspaper. I immediately flourished and was a manager by age 25 reaching the position of president and publisher in my mid-30’s.

My adoption of digital was early and successful and I have led teams head on into digital overseeing extremely successful websites, apps and digital marketing campaigns.

Leadership has always been a passion. I have read about and practiced the best in leadership material. I have led teams through good times and some very bad times.

As a speaker, I have shared the stage with super-blogger Michael Hyatt, leadership guru John Maxwell and digital marketing CEO Brian Halligan of Hubspot.

My most unique resume item must be that I have been a professional ventriloquist since age 8. If you have read Malcolm Gladwell’s book Outlier, I am an outlier that has entertained hundreds of audiences.
