History & Leadership: The Referrals Group opened its doors in January 2014 in Lexington, KY with the goal of improving the reputation of referral network marketing and to provide an organized way to confidently provide legitimate referrals that produce positive results.
In May 2017, Bart Giles, CEO and Founder, appointed Ginger Terrell as the Regional Director to help expand the organization into the Southeast. This organization is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ model. Rather, the model has structure but not too much structure as each individual group determines what works best for them. The organization decided to expand into the Southeast to offer additional services for busy, successful professionals who are either unable to be a part of other networking groups due to classification lockouts and/or cannot attend weekly meetings on a regular basis.
Bart holds a B.S. with the University of Kentucky, and Ginger holds an M.B.A. with Liberty University. Their combined experience spans nearly 4 decades of business development and consulting, management, and relationship building with nearly 20 of those years specifically focused on the referral marketing industry. Both are connectors, customer-centric, and lead with compassion, honesty, and integrity.
Both are looking for busy, highly-skilled professionals who are interested to create small, strong support systems they can confidently and consistently refer clients to and gain help with business challenges.
