The BEST bunch of marketing professionals you’ll ever get to know. Seriously.
Co-Founder & Crew Chief
Taylor is the perfect combination of frank and funny, and manages to lead the motley, yet brilliant crew of creatives at Spark Marketer to get the job done. Though he can’t spell, he is passionate about helping service business owners navigate the Internet oceans filled with sharks and unsavory pirates. If you ever get “Taylored”, consider yourself lucky –he does it for your own good and for the growth of your company!
Co-Founder & Crew Chief
Carter, the other big cheese at Spark Marketer, is a master of big words and cooking, though not at the same time. He is a perfectly balanced mixture of Yin & Yang, and has a fine-tuned eye for great design and storytelling. He is a lover of coffee, cigars, good books, and anything that is not sports related, and his soothing voice has earned him the honor of being our very own Morgan Freeman. In fact, many clients call just to hear his voice.
With his boyish good looks and polite demeanor, Tom is the “Gatsby” of Spark Marketer. But don’t let his good looks fool you, he’s also got brains, which is why he’s our Operations Manager. Tom spends his days working with the leadership team to identify and address any potential issues, researching the latest changes to the search landscape, and making sure we’re all rowing this boat in the same direction. He is an avid Tennessee sports fan, but we love him anyway.
PR & Content Manager
Jessica was created on the 8th day to make sure everything created on days 1-7 stayed organized and ran smoothly. She manages all of our blog post writers, takes care of site edits, assists our clients in answering online reviews, and does at least 50 other things on a daily basis. Jessica is a Jill of all Trades and a grammar goddess. Whether you need someone to do a quick website fix or tell you where to find the best daily planner, she’s your girl.
Client Relationship Manager
Chris is freakishly tall, so when he’s not communicating with or onboarding clients and helping small businesses grow and thrive, he’s our “go-to-man” for reaching things on the top shelf (if Justin’s unavailable). He is also a Tennessee Titans fan, but we never claimed he was perfect – just tall.
Tina is in and out of the office, but we’re always especially glad to see her around payday. Although she has enough headaches of her own, she selflessly deals with the majority of our accounting and paperwork, all while having a great sense of humor.
Fred is Spark Marketer’s resident Indiana Jones. When he’s not traveling the world or out in the wilderness helping keep Boy Scouts alive, Fred’s keeping a close eye on our customer’s websites and Spark Marketer’s servers. He also helps our customers track down lost website domain registrations and website hosting accounts, plans site migrations, and sets up new email services.
Alex is the workhorse of designers – from logos and business cards to full site design, she does it all…and without missing a single Seth Rollins wrestling match. She’s got a killer eye for what looks good, and best of all, she’s willing to work for pizza. Alex LOVES pizza.
Jonny is our resident Retention Engineer. She is a big literature nerd who thrives on memes, dad jokes, and gifs. She’s also big into mystery novels and crime solving and would describe her perfect man as Sherlock Holmes. Like the Jessicas and any self-respecting person, Jonny is an avid believer in the Oxford comma. Oxford 4EVER.
Creative Brand Communicator
Jessica spends a great deal of her time writing articles and website content, managing the Spark Marketer blog, and creating content wherever and whenever it’s needed. As our primary site content creator, she has just enough knowledge about plumbing, basement waterproofing, chimney care, and HVAC to guilt-trip anyone in the DIY business into hiring a professional. When she’s not working, she can be found in the studio, reading, making custom tees, or talking to her dog.
Lead Account Manager
Christian is our resident Texan (now that Alex moved back to Texas) and our lead account manager. He’s also a Photoshop beast and an incredibly versatile and talented artist, and he religiously follows the professional gaming scene of StarCraft.
Jonathan has been with us from the start and knows a little bit about every aspect of the business. He spends the majority of his days working on video, managing Spark Marketer’s social media accounts, fixing problems, making “dad jokes”, and being the world’s nerdiest hipster. He’s also largely responsible for ensuring we all have enough coffee and cat/dog videos to get through the day.
Aaron spends most of his time making sure each of his clients’ businesses is thriving. He’s a proud East Nashvillian, a Boston Red Sox and New England Patriot’s fan, a father of two, and a music and audio aficionado. He currently stands as our 3rd tallest employee.
Justin has overshadowed Chris as Spark Marketer’s tallest employee. He spends his days communicating with clients, facilitating their requests, monitoring their online reputation, and going the extra mile to help them succeed. Fun fact: Justin has NEVER been full in his life, and his typical Taco Bell order includes: 4 Crunchy Tacos, 4 Soft Tacos, 1 Quesarito, 1 Grilled Stuffed Burrito, and Nachos Bellgrande. Although he’s never officially entered an eating contest, we’re sure he would win.
Assistant Account Manager +
Amber is from a small town in Missouri, which might explain her love for cows. The only thing she loves more than cows is shoes (specifically Cole Haan kicks). When she’s not researching Schema, working on funnels, talking social media strategy, or color coordinating the pens, sticky notes, and notebooks on her desk, you can find her reminding Jonathan just how “old” he is. One place you won’t catch her is by the coffee pot — she steers clear of caffeine.
Assistant Account Manager
As an assistant account manager, Shane spends a great deal of time formatting blogs, writing meta descriptions, building citations, and well, assisting the account managers. He’s a graduate of Vanderbilt, and like most grads, Shane’s a big fan of Vanderbilt athletics. His hobbies include writing poetry, trivia, going to the movies, and listening to his vinyl collection (which he thinks is better than yours). He’s also pretty proud of the fact that he shares a birthday with two of television’s greatest shows: The Twilight Zone and Scrubs.
