Gregg Singer | Executive Vice President
Gregg’s professional experience ranges from marketing, advertising and creative development, to sales, management, budgeting and strategic planning. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from the S.I. Newhouse School of Communications, at Syracuse University. He majored in Television, Radio, and Film Production, and minored in Psychology. Upon graduating, he worked on film shoots for TV commercials in and around Manhattan. But, wanting more creative involvement, he joined the advertising agency world, for nearly 15 years. He worked his way up from the bottom as a Production Assistant, all the way to Director of Broadcast Production and VP/Executive Producer for many New York advertising agencies, big and small. He produced hundreds of commercials and won many accolades. Wanting a bigger challenge, Gregg then moved on, and created a full-service radio commercial production company, at a prestigious audio post facility that serviced ad agencies, in Manhattan. The company he built grew into a $2.5+ million business that is still looked upon as the benchmark for the competition. While building the audio production company, he started consulting with his father on Budpak, Inc. A few years ago, Gregg decided to focus his energy on the family business and assume the role of Executive Vice President. He will concentrate in marketing, advertising, product and sales development/management, and supply chain logistics. Gregg is also an entrepreneur, an inventor, a mentor, and a father. He lives in the NY Tri-State Area with his wife, two children and his dog Karma.
