SuperTalk Mississippi host Gerard Gibert recognized by Marquis Who’s Who

SuperTalk Mississippi talk show host Gerard Gibert has been inducted into Marquis Who’s Who, an annual list chronicling America’s most accomplished individuals and innovators since 1899.

Gibert, who started hosting MidDays with Gerard Gibert in 2021, was a lifelong entrepreneur prior to hopping on the SuperTalk airwaves.

“I am honored and humbled to be recognized as a Who’s Who in America biographee. I’m enormously grateful to my amazing family, world-class colleagues, and fantastic friends who played a pivotal role in this honor,” Gibert said. “Representing Mississippi in the Who’s Who in America directory is especially gratifying.”

In 1986, he founded Venture Technologies, a technology and cloud services provider. As CEO of Venture, Gibert engineered numerous mergers and acquisitions of strategic targets, catapulting Venture to national prominence as a technology solutions provider. Initially funded at $189,000, Venture was sold for $92 million in 2019.

Outside of his 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. shift behind the microphone, Gibert serves on a variety of boards dedicated to growing Mississippi’s economy. That list includes the Madison County Economic Development Authority, Madison County Business League and Foundation, Innovate Mississippi, Empower Mississippi, and the Mississippi Lottery Corporation.

On the philanthropic side, Gibert serves on the boards of Canopy Children’s Solutions and the American Red Cross of Mississippi. In 2019, he was named the Heart Walk Chairman for the American Heart Association – Mississippi.

The latest recognition for Gibert joins a long list of accolades including Top 50 Most Influential Leaders in Mississippi, Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Finalist (2015, 2016, 2018), and Mississippian of the Year by the Association of Information Technology Professionals (1996, 2013).

Gibert has also been recognized as a Top CEO, Tech Most Wanted, and Top 40 under 40. In 2017, Gibert received ConnectWise IT Nation’s first-ever Innovation Award.
