Since opening Solomon Group in 2009, Gary has gained national attention as perhaps the brightest example of the young entrepreneurs creating successful businesses in New Orleans.
A native of the city, Gary grew up in a family of innovators. His late grandfather, T.G. Solomon, was a visionary businessman who built a movie theater empire that stretched across eight states. Inspired by T.G.’s sharp business sense and his love for great storytelling, Gary followed the family tradition and blazed his own trail as an entrepreneur.
Known for his ability to transform complicated technical projects into engaging audience experiences, Gary brings his considerable creative and partnership development skills to bear on Solomon Group’s many projects.
Gary earned a degree from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where he studied Theatre Design. He was recently named to Inc. Magazine’s prestigious “30 Under 30: World’s Coolest Young Entrepreneurs” list and has been highlighted in The Atlantic, SUCCESS Magazine, USA Today and Forbes. A sought-after speaker, Gary was a featured presenter at the 2015 GrowCo Conference and TEDxNOLA. Currently, he serves as President of the Board of Directors for The NOCCA Institute, and is a Member of the Advisory Council for the Innovation + Design Program at St. Martin's Episcopal School.
Under Gary’s leadership, Solomon Group was listed on the Inc. 5000 as one of America’s fastest-growing private companies for the past three years (2014-2016).
