Corey Gibson

Cause Marketing
Corey's career began working for Disney where he hosted live and on-camera productions, including the company's largest annual philanthropic event, Flashback. After opening a cause marketing, he created Children's Miracle Network Hospital's first national in-school campaign, and then, the first-ever, network/studio focused, cause marketing service. His Glee Give a Note became 20th Century Fox's most successful marketing campaign to date. Corey successfully lobbied congress for a resolution establishing National Music In Schools Week and then launched his own entertainment marketing agency. Corey has worked extensively with government officials and NGO's to develop conservation programs in Uganda and the Galapagos Islands. Moving back to Washington State and transitioning to agriculture, he has partnered with animal sciences professor/applied geneticist, Frank Hendrix, whose groundbreaking genetic marker discovery has lead to the world's first, DNA based certifications.
