BRIAN G. SILVA
DIGITAL MARKETING MANAGER
I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii on the island of Oahu.
Hawaii is typically known as "The ALOHA State", and it was my beautiful home for many years. My family has been involved in advertising industry for more than 30 years. Their subtle influences directed me down the marketing path and peaked my interests to always find different ways to communicate with people. My first taste for marketing started while working in the Food & Hospitality (F&H) industry as I created Facebook advertisements to draw-in customers. I have a passion for creating unique advertisements.
I started my own digital media marketing agency in 2014 and served as the Creative Director. My goal was to help small, local businesses gain media exposure, growth and engagement around the community.
In 2019, I had the pleasure of joining the Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) Hawaii as an Account Executive (NF-1101-03) for the RETAIL/FOOD & HOSPITALITY (F&H) division. Within less than a year, I created/moved into a Marketing Specialist (NF-1101-04) position and added on the FITNESS & RECREATION/ADMINISTRATION division. I created effective marketing strategies to help increase revenue and brand awareness. I was tasked with supervisory responsibilities to include the recruitment of a Digital Media Marketer and Social Media Administrator.
I currently serve as the Digital Marketing Manager with Grand Canyon Resort Corporation. My duties have allowed me to expand strategic and creative development on social media channels, along with redesigning the digital marketing strategy.
When I'm not working on creative digital marketing, I enjoy surrounding myself around others who have a passion for creative media/art. Visiting museums, creative art studios, photography, and supporting small local businesses within my community are just a few weekend hobbies that I regularly participate in.
I enjoy BBQing with my family, staying at home to watch movies from the
80's - 90's while eating buttery popcorn, and taking care of
my handi-capable pup.
I like to live an active lifestyle, centered around sports (basketball, soccer, football), fitness (TRX, weight training), and hiking.
