Get to know the founder:
As a trendsetter in the world of event planning, entertaining, promotion, and marketing, entrepreneur extraordinaire Gregory L. Hearns has made a career out of delivering impressive, classy experiences that keep clientele looking forward to his next event.
Over the years, Gregory successfully navigated in and out of corporate America overseeing the development and implementation of marketing and promotional strategies used in national and international sales. Inspired in part by his Southern roots, Gregory went on to co-found his first promotional company Cajun Family Entertainment, where providing quality, upscale events for his HBCU Alumni/Louisiana clients and patrons was his #1 priority for many lucrative years. Searching for work with a purpose, he went on to form Cause 360 Entertainment Group, where Gregory produced meaningful events that helped raise funds for those in need by lending his talents to various nonprofit organizations. But his desire to help people thrive did not stop there.
Being romantic was ingrained in Gregory’s DNA at an early age as he watched his parents woo each other constantly through the ups and downs of life. Gestures like watching his father pick flowers from the backyard for Valentine’s Day; gazing at them slow dance in the kitchen to their favorite Sam Cooke song, A Change Is Gonna’ Come; or observing them hold hands while taking a peaceful stroll “just because,” truly resonated with Gregory. As such, his parents’ 48-year-old love story easily became the motivation for his newest venture, The Romance Depot, LLC.
