Andrew Kinerson - El Pres Jr.
Maria Coffey - Marketing & Website Manager

Maria has previous corporate level marketing experience and has even taught marketing courses as an adjunct professor locally. Maria enjoys spending time with her husband and two boys and has a propensity to scream bloody murder when startled by loud sounds and/or fast movements.
Favorite movie line quote: "Y'know what I think??? I think you're all f***ed in the head! We're ten hours from the f***in' fun park and you want to bail out. Well I'll tell you something, this is no longer a vacation...it's a quest, a quest for fun...." - National Lampoon's Vacation
Patrick Doorey - Operations
Patrick has been with Gettysburg Flag since 2012 working in sales, service and new product development. He doesn’t have time to enjoy hobbies but instead herds a bristling pack of masculine children in partnership with his long suffering fiancé.
Favorite movie line quote: The late, great Chris Farley, from Tommy Boy - "Because they know all they sold ya was a guaranteed piece of s***. That's all it is, isn't it? Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will. I got spare time. But for now, for your customer's sake, for your daughter's sake, ya might wanna think about buying a quality product from me.”
Brandon Manning - Sales Manager
Brandon Manning has been a salesman with Gettysburg Flag for almost a decade, helping turn flag dreams into realities for folks all across our great country. Brandon served several tours in the desert with the USMC and we honor his service to our country. When he isn’t working he likes to eat, wander about and sing to himself, much to the chagrin of his patient and loving wife.
Adam Migirditch - Key Account Specialist
If I were a flag I would be: The classic Peace Sign flag. Just be kind to each other.
Bucket list item: Go to SXSW in Austin, Texas
Favorite movie line quote: “Yeah, well, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.” - The Dude, The Big Lebowski
Josh Pierson - Account Specialist
Josh joined our squad in early 2023. An Army Brat, Josh has lived in many places during his formative years - you throw a dart on a map and pretty good odds Josh has lived there. An alum of the University of Kentucky, he likes to tell the story about the time he beat Anthony “The Brow” Davis at a pickup game of H.O.R.S.E. These days Josh and his longtime girlfriend chase their passion as Medieval Scottish re-enactors. Josh portrays William Wallace in blue-face, kilt, sword, the whole shebang. Apparently there is a real market for his services at all kinds of functions like Medieval Fairs, Scottish Weddings, even Birthdays and Bat-mitzvahs. He will occasionally shout “FREEEEDOM!” at the top of his lungs while sitting at his desk. Our first thought was wow, this guy is a perfect fit here! Then we realized he was just really into Braveheart, which is equally cool in our opinion.
If I were a flag I would be: "Come out you Cuckold" because insults are timeless
Bucket list item: Wild boar hunting in Hawaii
Favorite movie line quote: I honestly just feel that America is the best country and all the other countries aren’t as good. That used to be called patriotism. - Kenny Freakin’ Powers
Nick - Marketing and Sales Assistant
Dave Byrne - Logistics Coordinator
Todd Kennedy - Warehouse Manager
Todd joined our fulfillment team in 2015 and ships like nobody else, refuting the idea that robots could ever replace the output or accuracy of finely tuned human; he is a modern day John Henry but with a much happier ending. In his free time Todd likes getting his haircut and challenging absolutely anyone in 3 point shooting contests, usually with spectacular results.
If I were a flag I would be: 9/11 We Remember flag because it represents those lost in the tragic attacks in NYC and also a time when our country came together as one.
Favorite movie line quote: "FREEDOM!" - Braveheart
Jordan - Senior Fulfillment Associate
The warehouse is a busy place and Jordan is one of the guys who keeps things running. With a name like Jordan we assumed he would be good at basketball but we were terribly wrong about that. Luckily for us he is very good at warehousing! Outside of work Jordan is always busy working on DIY home improvement projects, recently putting the finishing touches on a 6 lane indoor swimming pool he built in his basement. Gotta get in those laps!
If I were a flag I would be: The Washington's cruisers flag. The saying “An Appeal To Heaven” just holds such a significant meaning. People should seek protection from him rather than the government.
Bucket list item: Travel back in time so I could have the real experience of living through the 80's.
Favorite movie line quote: "Guess you guys aren’t ready for that yet.. but your kids are gonna love it..” - Marty McFly
Shelby - Production and Graphic Assistant
Our flags don’t make themselves...just like raising a barn in Amish country, it takes a village. Shelby is responsible for printing our flags onto the rolled goods that our seamstresses finish. Her skills are a huge factor in making flags look crisp, sharp and colorful. Outside of work Shelby and her kids train a stable of snails for competitive snail racing with hopes to have an entrant in the upcoming Snail Racing World Championship (this is a real thing, Google it). We ask her if her ultimate goal is to get them moving faster than a snails pace but she only looks back at us with flat, dead eyes to express her disappointment in our bad Dad-joke.
If I were a flag I would be: The Greek Flag Because the blue is so pretty and It is a flag I have to make pretty often!
Bucket list item: Obviously, to travel to Greece. I haven't been yet, but the architecture and amazing landmarks really stand out to me. I can't wait to go!
Favorite movie line quote: "There's so much room for activities” - Brennan Huff "Will Ferrell"
Monica - Seamstress
Since 2018 Monica has sewn flags and banners, large and small, in our East Greenbush production facility. When she isn’t throwing another thread on the bobbin, she and her husband volunteer their time at her sons Boy Scout events.
Favorite movie line quote: “[…], Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. I will be hoping that this letter finds you, and finds you well.” - Shawshank Redemption
Audrey - Seamstress Emeritus
Audrey is our flag maker emeritus, with over 50 years of total sewing experience, she has done it all when it comes to making flags. Audrey is the 12 time recipient of the Gettysburg Golden Scissor Award, handed out yearly to the seamstress who best represents the skill and artistry that Gettysburg Flag is known for. Audrey has been trying to retire for the last several years, but we won’t let her leave. When she does escape from the building, we can usually track her down lakeside at a campsite in the Adirondack Mountains, surrounded by family and friends.
If I were a flag I would be: I would be an eagle soaring high above the trees.
Favorite movie line quote: "And we shall mount up on wings of eagles."
Joyce - Seamstress
If I were a flag I would be: I would be the Tibet flag. I don't know why, but I love it so much!
Favorite movie line quote: "Alright, alright, alright."
Seamstress X has been sewing flags for Gettysburg since 2019. She is a flag ninja; her scissors like a katana, slicing up the fabric without a sound. She deftly works the double needle, stealthily hemming the edges with precision stitching, always within the balance of the Chi. No words are exchanged, only knowing glances that dance thru the shadows. Suddenly, before you knew it was happening, there is a flag inside your mailbox waiting to be flown. What do ninjas do outside of work? Nobody knows for sure.
Melody Gullotto - Production Manager
Melody (a.k.a. “Mello", a.k.a. “Mel-Dog” a.k.a. “Murder”) is our Graphics Manager, overseeing all things design. She has previous experience in the field of print journalism advertising which she found to be overwhelmingly boring. Outside work, Mello is a hardcore gamer, owning the 2017 North American record for best K/D ratio on COD: Black Ops and more recently entered the Guinness Book of World Records for the "Longest continuous Twitch stream while playing Fortnite” at 133.75 consecutive hours. Bravo Melody, Bravo!
If I were a flag I would be: My husband wanted me to make a very stereotypically Italian version of “No Step on Snek” and I liked how it turned out.
Bucket list item: Stay at Ashford Castle in Ireland at least for a weekend.
Favorite movie line quote: When Darth Sidious yells “UNLIMITED POWAAAH” in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
Mark - Lead Flagpole Installer
If I were a flag I would be: the Fire Fighter Flag. It holds a special place in my heart as a long time volunteer firefighter!
Bucket list item: see all 50 states (maybe not Hawaii)
Favorite movie line quote: “Ride ‘em like you stole ‘em”
