Justin’s growth path
Justin has always had a talent for seeing opportunity, and capitalizing upon it. After graduating with a BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration) in Marketing from Harding University, he began work at Lifestyle Communities as a marketing coordinator.
After 6 months, he was given the opportunity to run marketing for Lifestyle and their 3 subsidiary companies. After a few years of contributing to their rapid growth and doubling of marketshare, he felt it was time to create that type of growth for other companies through starting his own agency.
Since then, Justin had the opportunity to work with hundreds of companies across dozens of industries uncovering the various applications for digital in activating growth. Through these experiences, he created Adept’s framework for lead generation, nurturing and marketing automation which has proven time and time again to be extremely effective in activating growth. He’s also had the opportunity to work with fast growing startups like JackThreads early on helping build their customer acquisition strategy giving them the framework needed for scaling up quickly.
“Based on my obsessions for activating growth, I’m most proud of our success growing our agency. We grow through the growth of our clients which proves our results are real and tangible.”
in his downtime
From “my little pony” with his 3 year old daughter to hide and seek with his one year old son, when Justin’s not growing businesses, he’s growing humans (and it’s the only thing he likes more).
