ILSE M. GONZALEZ
PRESIDENT & CEO
As the President & CEO of Connect Media Firm, I take pride in not only the unique and innovative services we provide but most importantly the positive, necessary, and direct impact they have on our local businesses and organizations. I could sit here and tell you everything we can do for you, but to put it simply: our goal is to make your life, as a business owner, easier! I understand you want to focus on running your business, so let us worry about putting your business on a platform to get the exposure it needs and deserves!
I grew up around the business industry given that my parents are entrepreneurs themselves. I have seen first hand the need to adapt to the new ways of receiving information and connecting with one another which is why I decided to create Connect Media Firm!
As a three time Lone Star Chapter EMMY Award winner, former journalist at a local television station (Telemundo Houston), and a Broadcast Journalism major, I have the background, experience, and recognition in the media industry. I know what it takes to produce an informative, engaging, and successful product, and now I have the opportunity to do that for you!
