09.12.2011– Justin didn’t quit his day job in the quest to launch BringShare – an online tool to help marketers simply track all of their marketing efforts in one place – and for good reason. His day job consisted of running Adept Marketing, a highly successful start-up that he and his business partner launched in 2007 to provide predictive marketing models for small and mid-sized companies looking to grow market share online.
Through his leadership, Adept Marketing has become a sought-after consultancy for online marketing strategies and has worked closely with promising start-up businesses as well as established companies looking to expand their online reach and results. He has been instrumental in growing online start-ups quickly with ROI numbers that have exceeded 300 percent. In 2010, Justin led the JackThreads.com account for Adept, growing membership on the e-commerce site by more than 3,000 percent. This growth led to an acquisition by New York City-based media company, Thrillist.com.
Prior to co-founding Adept Marketing, Justin served as Marketing Director for residential real estate developer in the Midwest, where he helped double market share and triple sales in less than three years. It was here that the seeds of BringShare were planted, understanding that there had to be a better, more efficient way to review, analyze and execute marketing data.
While not embracing the role of serial entrepreneur quite yet, BringShare marks Justin’s second start-up in five years. So where does he see himself in the next five years? Ask him, or just wait and see.
