Bio: Webfor’s Founder and Director of Digital Strategy started his career in marketing over 14 years ago. Having worked for some of the largest fortune 500 companies, in 2009 he felt it was time to venture out on his own. He started Webfor in early 2009 with a business model focused on what he called the 3 R’s (Relationships, Results & ROI). Due in major part to this business philosophy of putting the client first, Webfor has seen enormous growth. When he’s not focusing on helping small businesses grow their brand he’s running obstacle course races, practicing Jiu Jitsu, hiking, traveling and spending time with his beautiful wife and two kids.
