January 3: Revive Marketing Group


Revive Marketing Group was  "born" on January 1, 2011 to Gina Vensel, Eileen French, and Jack Bellas, who are three of the most dynamic, talented people I have ever met. Their mission for Revive was simple: be the best! Revive is a full-service marketing firm based in Pittsburgh, PA specializing in events, sponsorships, social media marketing, viral outreach, public relations, branding, and multimedia campaign development. They believe in connecting their partners to extraordinary opportunities, providing unique client experiences, giving back to their communities, and breathing new life into your business.

These three young entrepreneurs had all of the right ingredients for a successful venture: talent, personality, ambition, and a seriously long list of connections. If you live in Pittsburgh, chances are you have been to at least one of Revive's outstanding events. The annual Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show was my maiden voyage on the Revive super ship, followed shortly thereafter by the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition's (NOCC) first annual TEALtini event. These three truly do it all, and I can promise you have never seen anything quite like a Revive party.

I have had the distinct pleasure of knowing Gina (Mignogna) Vensel since the tender age of 6, when I entered my second grade classroom as a new student to the school and Gina greeted me (literally) with open arms, even offering to share her very best crayons with me. Now, 25 years later, I am truly one of the blessed to be able to call her "friend". Gina's support of bel monili is unprecedented, and in October 2011 she granted me the unbelievable honor of donning   custom-created bel monili bridal accessories. A more beautiful spokeswoman there has never been!

Another one of the pleasures I have had in my friendship with Gina has been meeting Eileen and Jack. I felt an instant kinship with each of them the moment we met, and with each passing day my appreciation for them grows even greater. Eileen has been a major influence in the growth and success of bel monili in many ways. She always seems to be able to find a bel monili creation that she likes when she attends a show, and she has given me some of the best product ideas and feedback (love bel monili headbands? Thank Eileen!). When I am at an event and I spot Jack, I know that a hug and a fantastic, authentic compliment are soon to follow. He is charismatic, warm, and friendly, and I have found that simply being in his presence makes me feel like I am part of something truly great. What's more, all three of my friends at Revive are heart-warmingly family oriented. At any given event, I'm bound to see Gina's sister, Eileen's grandmother, or Jack's parents. It's no surprise that the principals at Revive have earned the pride and respect of their friends and family.

Make sure you visit Revive online and follow them on Facebook and Twitter so that you don't miss out on the next big thing going on in the 'Burgh, or email them with any questions, ideas, or just to say 'hi'!. Remember them the next time your business, organization, or group is looking for an event, promotion, launch, or other social happening, as Revive will breathe new life into your cause, your business, and your world.


  1. They certainly are a dynamic trio. And this has to be one of the best testimonials I've ever read.


  2. Thanks Emily! It's all heartfelt and true!
