Power of Care Leadership – George Farris

George Farris, CEO of Farris Marketing, answers 8 Questions in 8 Minutes as part of the Power of Care Leadership series.

George Farris is the Founder and CEO of Farris Marketing. In his 35 years in the marketing business he has handled a wide range of communication challenges and projects. He has always believed that good communication can help most business and non-profit organizations achieve growth and other worthwhile goals.  

To say George’s entry into marketing was non-traditional is an understatement. He attended less than a year of college and then focused on pursuing his interests. He purchased a commercial photography studio that specialized in industrial and product work. At the same time, he began writing and directing TV commercials for local businesses, created TV shows for a local cable network and even promoted boxing matches. 

Farris Marketing was formed in 1986 and took on a variety of projects ranging from research, crisis PR and B2B marketing to product and retail advertising. George and Farris Marketing have worked on projects all over the United States — primarily in Ohio, Florida, California and Georgia. Projects in England and South America rounded out part of his global experience.

George is a fitness enthusiast, combining early-morning strength training sessions with afternoon cycling most days. He has experience skydiving, scuba diving, kayaking and even amateur drag racing. But George’s favorite activity is actually anything he does with his 7-year old granddaughter and 9-year old grandson. He says doing anything with them — whether it’s biking, basketball, reading, watching movies or playing Legos or something else — “is the most fun, fulfilling and enjoyable experience in my life — by a huge margin.”
