About Mike Gastin

Welcome. I’m Mike and I’m glad you’re here.

I’m a brand and marketing strategist with 25 years experience creating growth. I help privately-owned companies—the unsung heroes of our society’s material success—to thrive. I create marketing strategies, develop their brands, lead innovation, and implement the people and processes necessary to drive and sustain growth.

I’ve worked with Wegmans, Kodak, Fisher Price Toys, Mattel, Birdseye Foods, NextPress, Corning, Xerox, and a host of mid-sized and smaller privately-owned companies.

My wife Lydia and I live in Rochester, NY and we have three adult children and one daughter-in-law. I enjoy traveling, reading, cuisine, riding my motorcycle, and watching Barcelona FC. Although grateful for the success I’ve realized though throughout my career, my family is my greatest blessing.
