A native of Washington State, Andrew began his career in the US Coast Guard and served 6 years as a navigation specialist, tactical coxswain and law enforcement officer serving anywhere from Equator to Alaska to Russia. After his service, he attended Diablo Valley College for Business Administration.
Shortly thereafter, Andrew started Mover Circle, an online brokerage specializing in the moving industry. Mover Circle is now white-label technology firm helping moving companies modernize their sales and marketing systems, including CRM system and mobile applications. He went on to create Steelsmith Group in 2011 as a digital marketing consulting firm. Steelsmith Group quickly became a full-service digital marketing firm and has grown to two locations in San Diego and now in Seattle, his hometown.
A Typical Day with Steelsmith Group
While actively overseeing all aspects of the business, Andrew is very active in the day-to-day Sales and Account Management aspects of Steelsmith Group. A typical day involves team meetings, strategy calls along with planning, research and analysis for potential and existing clients.
What He Brings to the Table
Andrew brings 10 years of digital marketing experience through all aspects of the customer lifecycle from Search Engine Marketing, Web Design & App Development, Content Marketing, CRM and Marketing Automation. His ability to plan a focused, long-term client strategy and communicate those plans effectively with his clients has been shaped by the nearly 100 clients he has served in the 5 year history of Steelsmith Group.
In His Spare Time
Update: Andrew’s married now, which we never thought would happen. He also bought his first Seattle home in October of last year and lives in the “transitioning” neighborhood of Greenwood/Bitter Lake/Broadview.. okay we’ll just call it North Seattle. His wife Christine (his better looking and more social half) lives with him an his 3 year old puggle, Captain.
Andrew is actively involved with several internet marketing groups on the west coast, and attends meetings and conferences often to keep up on current trends and meet others in the industry. When he has some time to kill, he’s out boating, playing the guitar and trying to develop a respectable golf game and salsa dance moves that don’t look awkward.
