Localist Welcomes Lionel


Lionel Gross-Bey

We have a new addition to the Localist team! Lionel just finished his first week at Localist, and we asked him to write a bit about himself and his take on Localist so far.


Hello Everyone! My name is Lionel Gross-Bey and I am elated to have recently become part of the Localist sales team.

Prior to Localist

Given my experience in inside and outside sales, for me being a “people person” is second nature. I have worked and helped many businesses and non-profit organizations such as societies, associations, museums and other non-profits. As a young man from a small town in Maryland, I grew to adopt a very empathetic, consultative and personable way of speaking to professionals in my areas of expertise. Now living in the more urban portion of the state, I have picked up the best characteristics of both worlds and have grown my network and skill set. Not to mention the great people and experiences I have been exposed to.

At Localist

DC HarborWith a passion for marketing and love for events, reading Localist’s mission made me realize that I was a perfect match for the position. Working for a company that has an enthusiasm for helping businesses and organizations keep their followers interactively involved with their events while also getting to work with some very bright and motivated co-workers, was the cherry on top of it all. Here at Localist, I’ll be continuing to do what I know and enjoy: helping associations, libraries, museums, and art councils to create buzz and excitement around their upcoming events in a time efficient, result-driven and captivating way.

A Little About Me

RicoAs mentioned, I am a country mouse in the city, born and raised in Salisbury, MD. If you’re ever in the area in the summer, check out Ocean City, MD, take a walk on our great boardwalk and try the best french fries in the state. I recently moved back to the more active portion of the state with my Bassett Hound, Rico, after falling in love with the area while attending Bowie State University (Bulldogs forever).  I enjoy exploring the area and sights of Baltimore and Washington D.C., along with playing music. Playing the organ, keyboard, saxophone, bass guitar, and drums is a passion and gift that I have found to be a hobby of great use. I am a “retired” comedian, stage named G. Kue, so a chuckle with me during a demonstration wouldn’t be out of the question.
