In 2017, before we merged to form Array Digital, Kevin made an amazing hire who has proven to be an asset to our team. In episode 223 of Journey to $100 Million, listen in as Kevin shares how vital our marketing manager, Jake Maines, has been to our team. Jake’s role is to oversee our entire marketing department, including social media, SEO, advertising, and website design.
Prior to hiring Jake, our goal was to hire someone who would be able to assist SEO and marketing clients. We are very fortunate to have Jake on our team as he has been essential to the growth of our company. His experience along with his dedication to the company has allowed him to transition from working within a single department to being the head of the entire marketing department.
While Kevin was interviewing this new hire, he did not just focus on Jake’s experience and background, but also his personality and character to see if he would fit in with the culture of the company. Jake exceeded Kevin’s expectations and has been an amazing addition for the team ever since. The moral of the story is, if you want to grow a great company, you have to hire great people!
