Mark Gerardot

Creative Director

Mark Gerardot comes to Merge by way of Indiana and brings with him 20 years of creative marketing and branding expertise and a "no off button" Midwestern work ethic. While he's earned his share of creative accolades, this Creative Director’s greatest reward is turning creative ideas into real, tangible business results for clients.

As the tenth of eleven children, Mark learned two very important life lessons growing up: Eat fast or don't eat and play nice with others — traits that have served him well in life and his professional career.

For the past 10 years, Mark has specialized place branding, tourism and hospitality marketing — allowing him to indulge in his second love — traveling. His first love, his beautiful wife and "the girls" (two golden retrievers and a cat) keep him grounded and remind him of what's important in life.
