Why did you decide to join Bold Strategies?
I was first drawn to BOLD because of the way the company was structured and how they took a unique approach to the agency model. This structure appeared to promote collaboration, teamwork and a level of expertise that provided tons of value to the client. In addition to this, everyone I met with was genuine, knowledgeable and had a deep passion for eCommerce and the company’s clients. After speaking with everyone, I joined because I felt as though my experience in eCommerce would provide value to the team and that it was a place where I could continue to learn and grow in my career.
