Jhan Dolphin has joined GMR Marketing as Vice President, Business Development. Dolphin will focus on mobile event touring programs for GMR, which has a long history of dramatically increasing brand awareness and providing mobile, interactive sampling events for its clients.
“Jhan has made a name for himself with his innovative vehicle marketing projects and we’re delighted to have his expertise on our team,” said GMR Marketing CEO Gary Reynolds. “GMR’s touring programs have always been second-to-none and Jhan will fortify our standing within the mobile/touring industry.”
Dolphin comes to GMR from RealWheels Corporation, where he directed the award-winning project vehicle marketing team. His groundbreaking campaigns for the Chicago-based firm often involved unique, themed-vehicle designs that quickly became attention-getting attractions at each event. They included a rock-and-roll themed truck created with Cheap Trick, a Chicago Blackhawks-themed Camaro and the Mindfreak SUV created for Criss Angel’s A&E television series.
“The depth of mega-talented people experienced and passionate about building brands here at GMR is amazing,” Dolphin said. “It’s not hard to understand why GMR is held in such high esteem.”
Dolphin, who attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, has extensive experience in the sports and fitness industry and is also a successful voiceover artist for radio and television commercials, corporate meetings and presentations, videos, narration and promo spots.
