Unlocking digital opportunities for businesses.
Marc Baumann is a Digital Marketing Leader who spearheaded Organic Growth, Content Marketing and SEO operations in various in-house and agency roles throughout his 18-years career. He has experience in building team and processes from the ground up for small businesses and startups (Square, Plaid, Opendoor), as well as scaling marketing programs globally for enterprises (Amazon.com, Viacom and Scripps).
His expertise and passion for brand storytelling and content creation content has its roots in his professional background in journalism. In his previous life, he worked for 10+ years as investigative journalist, web editor and news desk coordinator at various weeklies and dailies (i.e. Financial Times), specializing in news and trends at the intersection of business, new media and information technology.
Marc graduated in Business Economics at the University of Zurich (Switzerland), and studied at the University of Cambridge (English) and UC Santa Barbara (communications & journalism).
In this spare time, he and his wife enjoy hiking, biking and photography as well as exploring beaches and hills, food, wine and all the beauty of their home town Santa Barbara.
