Gennady ‘Gary’ Vaynerchuk was born in Babruysk, Byelorussian SSR, Soviet Union on 14 November 1975 – his zodiac sign is Scorpio, and he holds both Belarussian and American nationality. He’s probably known best for being a co-founder of Resy, a restaurant reservation software company, as well as for being a co-owner of Empathy Wines.
Gary was raised in Babruysk by his Ashkenazi-Jewish parents; not a lot is known about his family, as he respects their privacy, but it’s known that his parents ran a family wine business, and that they moved to the USA in 1978, when Gary was two years old. He was then raised in New York City, and was 14 when he joined his family’s wine business; they eventually moved to Edison, New Jersey where Gary attended North Hunterdon High School. He matriculated in 1994, and then enrolled at Mount Ida College, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in management science in 1998.
After having received his degree, Gary took over his father’s Shopper’s Discount Liquors store, renamed it to Wine Library, and began selling their products on the internet; he launched the YouTube channel “Wine Library TV” in 2006, featuring videos in which Gary’s talking about wine. What was initially a $3 million per year business turned into a $60 million a year under Gary’s management, but he stepped away from it in 2011, wanting to focus on building his digital ad agency VaynerMedia.
The agency was founded by Gary and his brother AJ in 2009, and it provides Fortune 500 companies with strategy and social media marketing services. It now numbers more than 600 employees, and grosses over $100 million in revenue.
Gary founded the company The Gallery in 2017; it was renamed to Gallery Media Group in the following year, and it currently publishes women’s lifestyle content on PureWow.
His restaurant app Resy was bought by American Express in 2019, while his Empathy Wines was purchased by Constellation Brands in 2020.
