Meet the New Members of the Forthea Team
It’s been a busy few months at Forthea, where we’ve grown so much that we’ve literally had to add a few new desks to the office. But with those additions, we’ve comfortably seated our new employees and we’re now looking to fill more marketing jobs in Houston.
As we grow, we’re building upon our strengths and investing in new expertise. In fact, our new employees have one thing in common: they expand our skills and resources to better serve our clients.
We’re happy to have our new employees on board and we wanted to take a moment introduce them to you.
Jon Bowers, Team Lead
Forthea is excited to welcome Jon Bowers to the team. Jon has been a part of the online marketing community since there was an online marketing community, but he’s promised to never use phrases like “think outside the box.” Jon’s versatility and experience is unmatched and includes search engine optimization (SEO), search engine marketing (SEM), user experience (UX), web analytics, project planning and execution, quantitative research and analysis, and, most importantly, getting stuff done. He’s a graduate of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and won the 2012 OMMA Award for Online Advertising Creativity.
