I work for an insurance company as the director of underwriting. I am focused on creating and maximizing long term value. Analysis of BDC's, REIT's, Oil refineries, and Financials have been my primary focus. Strong management teams that align with their shareholders best interests have a much greater likelihood for success than those with conflicts of interest and little skin in the game.
I've built businesses all my life.
In my 20s I joined my family liquor store Wine Library and helped grow it from $3-$60 million dollar revenue business in only a few years. During this time, I launched winelibrary.com, one of America's first wine e-commerce sites.
In 2009, I started VaynerMedia along with my brother AJ. We're a social-media-focused digital shop that helps Fortune 500 brands tell their stories and drive their business results. We currently have five locations: New York, London, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and, Chattanooga, TN.
In 2014, I launched VaynerRSE, a $25 million seed fund that invests in and launches the next generation of world-changing technology companies. In 2015, I launched VaynerCapital. More on that very soon.
In 2014, I also launched The #AskGaryVee Show, a YouTube show and podcast that answers your questions on business, entrepreneurship, marketing, and more.
Along the way, I've written four NYT-Bestsellers. Whenever I can get a scrap of free time, I'm answering the tens of thousands of tweets and messages from the Vayner Nation, and showing up on TV in places like ABC News, ABC Nightline, Bloomberg TV, CNBC, CNN, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Late Night With Seth Meyers, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
I was named to both Fortune and Crain's 40 under 40 lists in consecutive years, and have been profiled in the New York Times, Fortune, and Inc.

I am a buy and hold common stock investor. Warren Buffett is definitely my guru. He makes the most sense to me. I began investing in the stock market at age 14 in 1970 with money earned on my paper route. What I have done since 1970 is invest primarily in the Dividend Aristocrats whenever the stock market is relatively low. I have never sold a single share of stock except on the rare occasion when one of my stocks was bought out for cash and I was forced to sell.. I keep all of my stock certificates or direct registration statements in a safe deposit box at the bank. I do not automatically reinvest dividends. I only purchase stocks when I feel that the stock market is relatively low. Brown University, B. A., 1978. Below are the 37 stocks in my portfolio.
