2. How did you get to this point in your career? What influenced you to get into this field?
When I am involved with a marketing campaign, I feel there is a buzz in the air, an electric tingle of excitement that is impossible to ignore. I have a team of over 85 amazing individuals with a diverse set of talents and a singular focus to provide remarkable results for our clients. And we have a blast doing it. My company was founded in tiny dorm room in 2010 as I set out to help websites and artist build their reputations online by using search engines. The web has evolved from a new frontier to arguably the single most important communications and marketing tool in history, which in turn has grown my company. Three years later it is one of the world's fastest growing online marketing firms. My company’s mission remains the same as day one, “help businesses succeed online”. Because the internet is work around the clock. Running successful online marketing campaigns requires an amazing grasp of two very different things. One, you need to be able to stay ahead of the millions of clicks across thousands of ads every day. Two, you need to be able to make smart marketing decisions based on the data. To say that this is a challenging task is an understatement. We are always up to the challenge. We love what we do and will do anything to help our clients succeed. Drawing on a decade of experience, we work every day to help extract more value from the data we collect.
