Hey! Kirk here. When I started ZATO in 2011, I had little intention of growing it beyond myself. Here we are 6 years later, as we add another employee into the mix! While we are now bigger than 1, our commitment to high-value, dedicated, technical PPC management has not changed at all. In fact, as we add additional team members who offer their own set of skills and focus, we find ourselves continually growing in our own skills.
Our newest team member is one of the only other technical PPCers in all of Billings, MT where our office is located and I am delighted to bring him onto the team. We recently expanded our offices as we prepared for growth so the timing could not have worked more perfectly.
Eric has been working in digital marketing for over a decade and specifically in PPC for 7 years. He has spent time in-house as the digital marketing manager at an internationally recognized adventure travel company and most recently was the digital marketing director at a web design and marketing agency here in Billings.
One of the things I am personally excited about with Eric, is that he brings a broad range of digital marketing experience including a fairly extensive background in SEO. Let me be perfectly clear, ZATO IS NOT AN SEO AGENCY. Even though we will not be contracting SEO work out, I am excited to have someone on the team who can better speak the language as we partner with great SEO agencies to better serve our clients.
Outside of work, Eric spends most of his free time with his wife and 3 kids. They have called Billings MT home for the last 11 years and enjoy spending time with friends, family and neighbors!
That’s the news from the smoky land of Montana at this time. If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance it’s because you’ve been a supporter of ZATO, and I can’t tell you how much that (and you) means to us. Thanks, and we look forward to continuing to invest significant technical knowledge and work into our clients in the realm of PPC!
