En Route was born out of opportunity. Long before our evolution into an agency, En Route began as a one man show, a lone marketing consultant who recognized the deep need for strategic guidance and measurable goals within the tourism and hospitality industry. It’s what our Founder & CEO, Bill Gehrman, did with that opportunity that shaped who we are today.
Since the creation of En Route in 2007, clients have engaged us for our expertise, creativity, relationships, and dependability. Today, our agile team leverages integrated marketing, communications and product development strategies to enable our clients to do what they do best – create exceptional experiences. Our strength lies within the decades of destination marketing experience that we collectively provide and our ability to remain responsive and creative. We are fast on our feet, quick with the wit, and incredibly calculated. We have been told we appear to be everywhere, and sometimes we are – that’s the beauty of being En Route.
