Eric J Gehler
A former UVA Football Player, Eric graduated from the University of Virginia in 1987 with a BA in Economics. A military brat who spent much of his youth in Europe and bases around the world, he decided after graduation to plant his roots and flag in Richmond, Va.
In 1995, while working for GE Capital, he purchased a Dell Personal Computer and discovered the World Wide Web. He engrossed himself in Internet Marketing and a new Search Engine called Google – and built over 200 websites. When the eCommerce transactions he received were more than his full-time salary at GE, Eric’s entrepreneurial spirit took over and the internet became his full time job and passion.
Fast forward to 2006, Eric joined forces with a Richmond-based company to provide his marketing skills, self-taught search engine optimization (SEO) strategies, and pay-per-click (PPC) magic to the team. In 2013, Google took notice and Eric was named one of only 15 Google Partners North American Ambassador for AdWords. This led to other titles and opportunities to speak at Google conferences, have access to NDA beta programs, and discuss and learn alongside Google Engineers.
In 2015, Google named Eric a Product Expert Top Contributor in the Web Search Platform – a user-to-user help forum for Google Web Search issues.
Under Eric’s strategy and marketing skills, the company gained the prestigious Google Premier Partner status. The company also gained many accolades and web-based awards such as Top SEO Firm, Top PPC Firm, and Clutch Awards for Agency Management.
Eric began working with PMA and Cindy Phillips in 2014 on Window World accounts while at his old company. In 2020, Eric officially joined PMA to help expand their Digital Marketing programs and the opportunities for all PMA clients.
