Gertler is credited with leading the campaign for Mendes' debut single "Life Of The Party", which sold over 148,000 copies in its first week and has since been certified Gold by the RIAA. The single made Mendes the youngest ever artist to break into the Billboard Hot 100's Top 25 with a debut single. Gertler also is credited with developing the campaign behind Shawn's first studio album Handwritten which topped the Billboard 200 at number one, making Mendes, at the age of 16, the youngest artist to do so since Justin Bieber released his album My World 2.0 in 2010.
