Cheryl Gentry

As President of Glow Media, an event management company, Cheryl has criss-crossed the globe supervising, coordinating, and executing hundreds of pieces of the puzzle that magically come together when any one of her events launches.  From picking the Nordic menu in Copenhagen, to the walk-through in Berlin to verify the hotel was just as good as the gorgeous photos, to playing a round of golf in the Bahamas with an executive to finalize the smallest details, this entrepreneur brings the full range of her energy, expertise and enthusiasm to each project she takes on.
