In business we have a short list of go-to people when something really needs to happen. George at McNeilly Communications is definitely on my short list of go-to people.
Kymberly Brantigan - President, Performance PR Plus
George is a dynamo. He has a great energy level and a fertile mind to go with an engaging personality. He did great work for ESPN and was a great representative of the company. He is a real pro that will be an impact player at his next stop.
Mark Dyer - Senior Vice President, IMG
McNeilly Communication has consulted with me on numerous occasions putting me in contact with the right people for my business needs. They've also provided valuable strategic communications advice.
Mike Romeo - General Motors
We've collaborated on several marketing and in-store events. Each time McNeilly Communications has delivered great results, both on time and under budget, while supporting multiple priorities and programs to the fullest extent possible. They over-deliver on well promoted and attended events that deliver great sales results.
Henry Manson - General Manager, Bass Pro Shops
I am happy to recommend George McNeilly as the ultimate professional. We worked together at the Walt Disney World Resort for several years. George is an expert in the sports business and is not only a great manager but a great leader as well. You will find his energy and enthusiam refreshing.
Lee Cockerell - Executive Vice President, Operations, Walt Disney World Resort
George serves the Windermere Country Club Foundation and 'A Home for a Hero' very well, and is an asset to our ability to accomplish our mission, objectives, and strategies. We would not be as successful as we are without McNeilly Communications.
Joe Gustafson - Windermere Country Club
A Pro's Pro who understands the business inside and out and whose experience provides tremendous value. George is an ego-free collaborator who focuses on results.
Seth Palansky - Vice President, Communications/Editor-In-Chief, Harrah's Interactive Entertainment/World Series of Poker
In my 30 years as a sports journalist, I can count on one hand the number of people who had the skills to make a company better in every way. George is one of them. He is tremendously respected by everyone in our business, a true professional that garners attention and admiration from everyone who crosses his path.
Terry Blount - Columnist/Commentator, ESPN.com
George is a professional who respects his partners' needs and involves them in creating PR solutions. He is exceptionally creative and pushes us with new ideas and out of the box thinking.
Jay Abraham - COO, NASCAR Media Group
George is a true pleasure to work with and be around. He is a wonderful public relations professional, whose creativity, willingness to find a solution, and ability to make anyone feel at ease is remarkable. George is a hard worker with an understanding of the big picture and I hope to work with him again in the near future.
Jim McCoy - Strategic Sponsorships, Nationwide Insurance
I've known George for over 20 years, dating back to his time in local Orlando radio and my beginnings covering NASCAR. Especially during our time together at ESPN, I've always found him to have a firm grasp on the 'big' picture, while having the same understanding for the individual perspective of the person, issue or group he was addressing.
Allen Bestwick - Host, ESPN
I really enjoyed George's 'Media Optimization' presentation and especially liked his points that you can't assume any interviewer is fully prepared and has the entire story, and that social media is a critical component of any integrated marketing communications plan. It is clear why his proven strategies deliver great results for his clients.
