Great West Digital (GWD) creates marketing strategies for a variety of clients and businesses, and we’re featuring the team that enables your successful campaigns. Today we meet Digital Media Sales Specialist Gregg Kirkland, who joined GWD on July 13, 2020.

Gregg, what drew you to GWD?

That they are looking to grow into a digital marketing leader and that they are a smaller, family style business with a nice culture.

What is one food you could eat every day?

Chips…is that considered a food? If not…probably chicken wings or steak.

I think it’s safe to consider chips and chicken wings vital to happiness, and happiness is vital to wellbeing!  What are your favourite local destinations?

For dining: The Keg, Earls, Original Joe’s, and Boston Pizza (when it’s a family outing). Hiking: Various River Valley trails in Edmonton. Entertainment: Rogers Place. I love watching the Oilers and Oil Kings play at Rogers and going to concerts there as well. My favourite local concert venue is The Starlite Room.

Starlite is an iconic Edmonton venue. When you’re not enjoying live music, what’s on your playlist?

For a music lover such as myself that question can have a very long answer! I have 1,137 songs on my custom Spotify playlist and 9,397 songs in my “liked songs” playlist. The list of artists have a very wide range from Beastie Boys and The Black Keys to The Tragically Hip and Tool. I don’t have enough time to listen to all the music I would like to.

Let’s pretend that travel is a thing right now. Do you have a favourite vacation destination?

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic; Huatulco, Mexico; and Gros Islet, St Lucia.

What are the top three must-haves in your fridge and pantry?

Fridge: Beer or ice and water for me, milk for my oldest son, lemonade for my youngest son, Nestea Zero for my wife. Pantry: Chips, popcorn, peanut M&Ms, and red wine.

What is one thing everyone should know about digital advertising?

It is customizable to perform for every type of business’ goals and needs, and it WORKS!

Thank you, Gregg. We are thrilled to have you on board at Great West Digital and I hope the readers have learned how relatable and fun you are.
