The Bow Tie Gent

The gent behind the bow tie goes by Louis, a 24-year old graduate of Wofford College, a small private institution in the South. His passion for International Business and Marketing drove him to pursue a degree in Business Economics, Spanish, and French. He currently resides in the beautiful city of Charleston, SC. In a town with only a handful of male bloggers, Louis brings his refined style with a hint of big city living. 

The gent’s drive for success allowed him to launch GRAND PR Firm, a full service public relations firm. Becoming a CEO at 19 years old was a highlight in his career, but there are other high goals he still wants to achieve. His initiative, determination, and hustle will allow him to surpass the expectations for himself, clients, and brands. He welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with you today.

The Bow Tie Gentleman is a digital spot to interact, inspire, and influence….
