Superpower: Keeping it real! Connecting with our customers and team on a personal level to keep the fun in the work.
Background: With a BA in Marketing and an MA in Sports Marketing, I started ColinKurtis in 1996, out of my home with an old college buddy. Over the years, the one thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to delivering great creative based on sound strategy that gets results. I have dedicated myself to finding marketing strategies and campaigns that provide client-driven results, all while working as a team together with our customers.
Diversions: Revolve around my daughter and my girlfriend—if I am not with them, you can find me at work. When I get away from it all, I’m bowling, golfing or playing Texas hold ‘em.
One Thing People Don’t Know About You: I considered becoming a pro bowler and bowled for the NCAA Championship.
Favorite Food: For starters, I enjoy a light mixed berry smoothie, made with Milk Buds from Butter Buds, and a protein bar, created by Nellson Nutraceutical—made using trend-forward ingredient solutions from ADM, dietary fiber from Fibersol®, specialty plant-based oils from AAK—on my way to the office or the airport. For lunch, I love a classic deli-meat sandwich—featuring bread baked using Innophos’ baking solution and deli meat protected by FFP’s clean label extracts for guaranteed freshness! To zest it up for dinner, I prefer a vegetable bowl mixed with Orange Sesame Ginger Dressing, courtesy of Sunkist Sauces and Dressings. And, my favorite go-to dessert is a roasted Campfire marshmallow, dipped in chocolate hazelnut spread from SOKOL Custom Food Ingredients.
