Beau Fraser, Managing Director
Beau never took well to being told what was what. In fact, his first spoken words were: "But...", "Why?", "You’re joking...right?" and "Huh?" Tired of hearing the challenging nature of these words, his great-grandmother was heard to mutter: "Tfgh jkoy schdd adphmf tsing!!!" Alas, because she had no teeth, Beau thought she said,"That boy should go into advertising!!!" and dutifully embarked on his career.

Today, Beau is the Managing Director of the New York office of The Gate Worldwide. In addition to running the New York office, Beau sits on both the U.S. and International Board of Directors.

Born in Goteborg, Sweden, raised in Manhattan, schooled in the Midwest (Lake Forest College), and currently a native of New York City, Beau spends his weekends restoring an 1840s-era farmhouse.

David Bernstein, ECD
Like most people in advertising, David originally dreamed of joining the circus. Unfortunately, they wouldn’t have him. So he turned his attentions to the only other industry whose members regularly jump through hoops: Advertising.

Today, David is the Executive Creative Director of The Gate Worldwide/New York. In addition to running the office’s creative department, he sits on both the U.S. and International Board of Directors.

Over the years, his ads for BMW, UPS, BellSouth and the New York Mets made regular appearances at the One Show, Clio and Art Directors Club Awards. One of his Hallmark commercials is also in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.

David lives in Westchester, NY, with his wife, Peggy, and their two children, Zack and Kyra. Neither of whom have any interest in running away and joining the circus. Yet.

Eric Van den Heuvel, Director, Media Channels
Eric’s passion for all things media began when he accurately predicted the rise of the iPod, blogs, product placement and cell phone advertising to his fellow kindergarteners.

For over 10 years, he’s gotten the kind of measurable results that have wowed big-ticket advertisers like American Express, Godiva and Putnam Investors.

He joined The Gate Worldwide from Margeotes/Fertitta + Partners, where he started one of the first full-service interactive media groups in the advertising business. Among his more visible successes was the launch of About.com, which closely integrated Internet impressions with traditional media—a novel program prior to 1998.

Eric lives in Connecticut with his wife and one-year-old son (who already has his own iPod).
