Gary Brewer, highly accomplished business and Internet marketing strategist and president of Costa Mesa-based DigitalEYE Media, has been named a nominee for Orange County Business Journal's 'Excellence in Entrepreneurship' Award.
An industry expert in marketing, brand development and execution, channel management, Internet marketing, social media, and marketing communications, Brewer has led DigitalEYE Media since 2006 to achieve significant revenue growth and market share.
