Marketing Experts at The Wheelhouse Group, Greenville SC
Bios and pictures of some of the people who keep the wheels turning
I'm a founding partner at The Wheelhouse and The Wheelhouse Group where I am the primary doer. I like coming up with a good plan and executing it as flawlessly as possible. Most often, I serve as the hub of a project and keep the wheels turning - organization, schedules, lists and keeping everyone on task are my specialties. I love brainstorming, but am often the first one to want to start acting on all our great ideas. I've worked in marketing my entire career and have worked both client-side and agency-side. One of the biggest reasons I love my job is because I love people and enjoy getting to know my clients at a personal level too. Advocating on their behalf and delivering results that surpass even their expectations are where I get my greatest sense of satisfaction.
My husband and I have gone to school together since 2nd grade and have 2 boys that run us wild. I love spending time with family, entertaining, reading, and being outside (preferably when it's warm).
I'm a founding partner at The Wheelhouse and The Wheelhouse Group where I am the primary talker. I like people and solving people's problems. I've been in marketing all of my career and have worked with hundreds of nationally recognized clients in nearly every state. One of my favorite things is to come up with ideas that make clients successful and pushing people beyond their comfort zone to achieve more than they ever thought they could. I find great fulfillment in having a vision and seeing it come to fruition. Fortunately, in my line of work, I get to see that happen quite often. I love to learn and I get to learn something new from the people around me every day. I'm rarely the smartest person in the room, but I love being in a room full of smart people working together toward a common goal.
My wife and I have 4 kids - 3 girls and 1 boy. I enjoy spending time with my family, in my workshop, working on house projects, and helping friends with their projects.
I am a managing partner at the Wheelhouse Group. If Rebecca is the “doer” and Jeff is the “talker”, then that makes me the primary “finder”. I’m constantly looking for relationships for us to engage in where we can increase campaign results and offer value-add services for our clients. I spend the majority of my time brainstorming with folks who are navigating the complex and ever-changing world of marketing. As a 30-year veteran in the marketing arena, I have worked in all 3 facets of the business – the agency side, client side and operational side, which provides a unique perspective to present our solutions where they provide the most value. It is incredibly rewarding to introduce a new breed of marketing that drives positive ROI for our clients. I now get to enjoy the opportunity to share the diverse marketing services of our Wheelhouse team with both current and prospective customers in my business development role.
I have a wonderful wife and two beautiful daughters and in my free time you will likely find me with a great group of friends challenging ourselves in fitness classes, going to concerts, playing golf or watching sports. As a graduate of James Madison University, I am a proud alumnus and an avid supporter of all things “Dukes”.
I am a designer here at The Wheelhouse Group that specializes in direct marketing. I’ve worked with numerous local, national and international clients to help give their marketing efforts a distinct design that gets results. I love to truly immerse myself in any project - learn all I can about the client and their target market to ensure I can deliver creative built to deliver. I really enjoy exploring the psychological side of designing for direct marketing and knowing how to implement it into any design. Analyzing how people take in and digest information is fascinating to me.
My husband and I lived in Woodruff, SC with our two dogs. In my free time, I can be found teaching local competitive marching bands and indoor winter guard ensembles. I also have an online handmade craft business that keeps me (and my amazingly supportive husband) busy!
I'm the lead SEO guy in The Wheelhouse Group. My product launch and marketing experience, paired with my passion for search and SEO, gives me the skills to help get your business, brand or product discovered online. I specialize in organic search, keyword research, as well as boosting product awareness and sales on Amazon.
Having spent 16 years in the publishing industry I know what it takes to cut through the noise to get your company discovered. During my time in publishing I was involved in content development along with developing, branding, launching and marketing hundreds of titles online and in stores across the US and internationally. Each author, title and product was its own mini-brand with websites, social, branding and platform development.
My wife Alison and I live in beautiful downtown Greenville, SC. We have an energetic 4 year old boy (who I'm sure will grow up to be an Olympic runner) and are presently adopting from Burundi, East Africa. When I'm not optimizing sites I love spending time with my family, being outside and exploring new places.
I believe that businesses shouldn’t have to choose between great aesthetics and practical functionality, regardless of the scope of their project. So whether I'm working on a website redesign or a social media strategy, I focus on excellence from every angle.
Being 51% left brain and 49% right brain, I enjoy hopping between solving complex codes in web design to brainstorming creative approaches for a small business rebrand. I spend a lot of my time behind the computer developing websites, overseeing design strategy, and writing content. But at the end of the day, I really just love a good challenge—something that pushes me to think in a new way.
I was born and raised in a family of small business owners in Hendersonville, NC, so entrepreneurship is in my blood. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my two kids, reading a good story (of the Flannery O’Connor genre), and exploring new things to do in Greenville.
My primary role is strategic planning for small businesses. I lead the charge in their branding, social media, and web strategies. I thrive on practical thinking and problem solving and approach every situation with a logical perspective.
My favorite thing about being part of a marketing agency is when I get to see my visions for small businesses realized into final products and solutions.
No matter how much I love my job, though, my children always come first. Whether being the “office mom” or an actual mom, I never slow down. I have high expectations, and I have no problem doing whatever is necessary to solve a problem.
I am the marketing analytics guy. My team utilizes analytics to help companies maximize their marketing potential. In other words, we crunch a lot of data to tell you what you need to do with your marketing to reach the right people with the right message. We work with a range of companies from regional entities to Fortune 500 companies throughout the country. I attended Lenoir-Rhyne College on a tennis scholarship and pursued an insurance and banking career working predominantly with BB&T and Regions Bank. During that time, I learned the power of data and my fascination with it’s relevance in marketing. I transitioned full-time to marketing analytics in 2016. I’m also involved in many organizations in the Upstate and have formed charities including I-3 Connections, which focuses on connecting businesses in the upstate and supports various children’s charities.
I am blessed to be married to my best friend Julianne and we have 3 boys to keep us busy. We enjoy camping, the beach, a myriad of sports and the arts.
I am a professional photographer and videographer here at The Wheelhouse Group, and I specialize in capturing moments as authentically as possible.
Weddings, businesses, editorials, portraits, and commercial work—I shoot it all. I love meeting new people, and that's why I was drawn to working at The Wheelhouse. This space is more than just a room of desks, it's a place for collaboration, and I love that.
Mike is an award winning creative designer here at The Wheelhouse Group. With nearly 20 years experience in marketing, Mike believes that design is better when it follows a plan. Big picture, little detail, all vital to successful design.
Mike lives in Greenville, South Carolina, along with his wife Tiffany and children Joseph and Ruth. When they’re not enjoying time together at home, you can find Mike and his family exploring Greenville and having outdoor adventures in the beautiful Upstate.
I am a content marketing consultant at The Wheelhouse Group. This allows me to venture out into the world and offer my knowledge, skills and enthusiasm. My international career has taken me from Madrid, to New York City, and now to Greenville, SC, with experience spanning from start-ups to global publishing corporations.
A content-marketer at heart, my specialty is leveraging content to stimulate lead generation and customer engagement via email campaigns, social media and blogging. I create long-term plans for content generation and distribution, making sure small businesses always have something to say.
Asker of questions. Seeker of knowledge. Visionary and implementer, I love collaborating and brainstorming with other freelancers and team members. Working with others towards a common goal keeps me energized and excited to start each new day.
I’m the business analytics guru at The Wheelhouse Group. My passion is transforming businesses. I spent more than fifteen years of my career in analytics, business strategy, and technology entrepreneurship. Previously, I led award-winning technology teams at DuPont and BlueCross BlueShield, taking enterprise systems from concept to implementation. With guiding principles of inclusiveness and excellence, I aim to create the best business intelligence solutions on the market.
As a recent migrant to Greenville by way of Chicago and DC, I am enjoying the charm and warmth of the south. I am passionate about iced tea, while the inner geek in me loves board games, sci-fi movies, solar panels, and four square.
When I tell people what I do - design and produce live stage productions for corporate events – they almost always say 'that sounds like so much fun!' …and it is! It’s incredibly challenging and rewarding at the same time. I help my clients bring their objectives for an event to life on stage through set design, messaging, content design, video production, and so much more. It’s my job to create the audience experience – in line with the clients’ objectives – and then make sure it’s executed flawlessly.
Depending on the project and the individual client’s needs, I bring together a unique team of creative and technical professionals for each event. As my relationships with my clients grow so does the need for strong, passionate people that are experts in their individual fields.
I head up the non-profit efforts at The Wheelhouse Group. We specialize in helping non-profit organizations that do good work grow their capacity while translating vision into reality.
We take a unique posture and approach to empowering organizations to create healthy culture, build strong teams, clarify and broadcast their vision, and multiply their influence. Our growing team is gifted and equipped to develop individualized strategies, build creative applications, and provide custom resources to transform culture and accomplish the organizational vision.
I'm a proud graduate of Columbia International University and love spending time with my family, traveling to new places, and enjoying a great meal. My family proudly calls Greenville, SC home.
I serve as part of the non-profit team primarily overseeing operations and managing projects. The non-profit team works to resource and accelerate the vision of our non-profit partners. I am the “details and make stuff happen” guy. I joined the non-profit team because it gave me the opportunity to combine work with one of my passions: helping equip and empower organizations to build strong teams, actualize vision, and multiply influence. One of the things I love most about our team is getting to work with people all over the world, giving us new opportunities each day to implement custom strategies/solutions, develop creative resources/applications, and transform organizational culture/teams.
I am a graduate of Furman University and have lived in Greenville, SC for 13 years. I met my wife, Allison, in Greenville 9 years ago and we have two beautiful, spunky girls ages 3 and 1. We enjoy the multitude of family activities Greenville provides us and any free time we happen to stumble upon! We believe Greenville is an exceptional community and we are proud to live, work, serve, and play here.
I'm a designer at The Wheelhouse Group with a special focus on non-profits. I’ve had the opportunity to work with many nonprofit companies, churches, and ministries to help develop their brand, along with creating marketing materials for smaller businesses. I specialize in simplifying information in order to communicate more through design. Highly personalized services range from print collateral to package design, as well as developing logos, book covers, and web/blog content.
I graduated from the College of Charleston with a business degree, and in my last semester, decided to take an art class and fell in love. I went back to school for graphic design and have loved the challenge of growing a career in the art world.
In my free time, I love to learn about the art of letterpress, textile design, and sewing. My favorite quote is: "The persuasive power of graphic design could radically alter the way people think about the issues of the future - from global warming to third world debt." (Peter Fiell)
