Co-founder and CEO Jarrod Lopiccolo has grown our creative digital performance marketing agency from a single-laptop endeavor to an international company serving brands such as Autodesk, The Islands of Tahiti, Niantic Inc., Adobe, Disney, Visa, Google and more. With a passion for creating beautiful human experiences, he’s brought his architectural background into our digital marketing work—taking the best of the real world into virtual architecture.
Jarrod pulls inspiration from the world around him, always sketching and jotting down ideas in his ever-present notebook. He’s the original Wild Bear—hungry to see the world and never settling for best practices. If there’s something better out there, Jarrod’s going to hunt it down. He often discovers them while he’s traveling, enjoying the total sensory experience of getting to know new people and places.
A mentor, father, husband and visionary, Jarrod has held leadership roles with several non-profit and public-private initiatives in Nevada. He previously served as Co-Executive Director of the San Francisco/Silicon Valley Inc. Magazine’s Business Owners Council and was an advisory board member for NCET (Nevada Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology). He’s taken the stage around the world at Destinations International’s Annual Convention, Social Media Week Bristol, eTourism and DMA West, just to name a few.
Outside of his office in Reno, Nevada, Jarrod likes to keep his hands busy with various projects or the latest technology. He prides himself on being an early adopter, trying any interesting technology that comes on the scene and attending CES in Vegas just for the fun of seeing into the future (and how it can be applied to digital marketing, of course!). If you ask, Jarrod will pour you a glass of his homemade beer, wine or mead and tell you all about what he’s seen.
