Marvin Ellis, President
At the early age of 30, EDS and General Motors began shutting down plants in California and Marvin got a job as a logistics manager in Milipitas, California. After 2 years of excellence, he was quickly promoted to regional manager for a position on the east coast and moved his family to Freehold, New Jersey. It was this new position and all its promise that changed Marvin’s path forever. This new position only lasted 6 months for him. After hiring and training 50 employees, the company downsized and Marvin was laid off. 3000 miles away from his family, Marvin decided he would never work for someone else ever again.
It was the greatest thing that ever happened to him as in 1999 he founded givemeservice.com and took all of his past experiences and applied them to small business owners and began providing solutions that would drive down their costs and increase their revenue. Whether it be through business networking with his other company (www.gmsbusinessnetwork.com) or through creating comprehensive Internet Marketing Solutions that create thousands of leads per year, Marvin simply loves working with small business owners every day. It has become his passion.
“Small Business Ownership is one of the last outposts of freedom in this country. If you can provide for your employees and loved ones year after year by enjoying what you do for a living… you are free! There is nothing better than watching a business grow year after year and helping fellow hard working entreprenuers achieve their goals by doing what they love.”
Marvin Ellis, President
Irina LaMoriello, Partner, SEO Manager
Irina LaMoriello, born and raised in Uzbekistan till the age of 15, and moved to the USA in 1997. She went through lots of changes to say the least, but she has led an amazing life and overcome many challenges!

As the years went on, both the company and Irina dove deep into understanding Google and all the aspects of Search Engine Optimization so that GMS could better serve their clients and keep the rates of doing so at a reasonable level. Irina spent many months taking courses online, and learning all there is to know about Local SEO, to make sure that we can provide the best services and solutions to customers. The changes are constant and the learning never ends, but Irina finally found something she is truly passionate about. She trained and became an SEO Specialist in 2011 and became a GMS Partner in 2013. We are very proud of her growth and her abilities.
She believes in small businesses and loves to help them grow and succeed which makes her a perfect fit for GMS. Irina is married to an amazing man since 2007 and the mother of 2 girls, 1 boy and is a huge part of what we do at GMS.
