Brett Mackie, Managing Partner | Accounts Strategy

AKA "The Cruise Director", I'm looking over the horizon for our clients to forge solid go-to-market strategies and generally make sure they don't fall off the boat. We work with startups as well as proven small and large companies where the sky is the limit, but budget is not. As Managing Partner of Account Strategy, it's a requirement that I have an internal and visceral understanding of what it takes to introduce an MVP level concept to our customers and help them execute a strategy for future success.  With 15 years of experience in digital marketing, front-end design, account management and sales, Brett has the learned the keys to most success are transparent communication and collaborative and passionate execution on an idea.  All of which is led through the good fortune of the "family-affair" approach of the Eight Bit team.
