Meet our Client Partner, Johnny Gregory. As our resident sales and marketing expert, Johnny is in charge of brining new business to the company by building our marketing and sales funnels. Besides doing all he does on the sales and marketing front, he is a self proclaimed nerd, proud Father and Husband, and die hard Lakers fan.
How long have you worked at Fortuitas and what has kept you with the company for as long as you’ve been here?
I have been at Fortuitas since 2017, so not too long but I feel like I have found a home here. The people! Everyone here has done such a great job making me feel like an integral part of the team. Jack (Kurtz) believes fully in a work/life balance and trusts his people so it makes for something that is not so much a job, but what I can't wait to do when I wake up.
As a Client Partner, it sounds like you keep a pretty busy schedule. For those of us who don’t know, what does that entail? What does your typical day look like? What are your favorite things about your job?
The role of Client Partner has a lot of different pieces. Basically I am a sales and marketing engine that's fueled on coffee. Throughout my week I can be working on anything from new business development to case studies and eBook campaign creation. It's the perfect mix of excitement from generating new sales and creativity with designing and running marketing campaigns.
As someone who is interfacing with new clients on a daily basis, what advice can you offer to new companies seeking agency assistance?
The biggest thing I would say is to be open to improvement. As an agency we design a lot of really cool things for our Clients, from mobile apps to fully integrated eCommerce systems. A digital agency should be as invested in your future growth as you are. If you are open to hearing the advice an agency then the output can be really amazing.
When you aren’t chatting it up with new Clients at Fortuitas, what are you most likely to be doing outside of work?
Most of my time outside of Fortuitas is spent with my wife and kids. Other than that I love watching basketball, so when the season is in full swing I like to catch as many games as I can.
Now that you know a little about Johnny, you can learn more about the rest of the Fortuitas team by keeping an eye out for next month's edition of our newsletter.
