At Friday night's awards dinner in Victoria, the BCAB cited his years of building and dedication to the industry, his service as a past multi-term President of the BCAB, the founding of Pattison Group/Vancouver's Basics For Babies, the formation of The Peak Performance Project and his overall passion for challenging everyone he works with to improve and grow radio.
I first met Gerry when he came to CJJR 93.7 FM and what was then AM-600, energized the stations and more than doubled the cume (not to mention revenues and profits!) of both within just a couple years.
Of course, he would be the first to tell you that he didn't accomplish that alone. That's what makes him so special.
Gerry Siemens is a leader, a manager who builds effective teams and then inspires and motivates them to do great things, year after year and in situation after situation.
Thanks, BCAB, for recognizing his numerous impressive accomplishments!
