Title: Principal, Founder
In Business Since: 2006
Best Year: 2012
2006 was a big year. Justin Timberlake’s SexyBack was topping the charts, ‘The Departed’ was the highest earning movie, and AdVision was born. After managing online campaigns at Omaha’s Hayneedle.com for years, Matt Walde knew it was time for a change. He started AdVision to provide small and medium sized businesses with a simple, affordable way to effectively market online.
Now located in the Capitol Hill area of Denver, CO, our office sits just off the intersection of 6th Avenue and Downing Street. In the area? Feel free to stop by anytime to say hello.
Matt founded AdVision in 2006 after managing a large portion of the paid search efforts of Omaha based Hayneedle.com. At the time, online marketing was very much in its infancy, and Matt knew businesses would soon need help making this medium work for them. So, in a July weekend back in 2009, he left Omaha, moved to Denver, moved in with his now wife Amy, and launched AdVision full time.
Matt lives in Denver, CO, is a Google AdWords Certified professional, and is yet to master skiing moguls. His favorite movie of the moment is Anchor Man, he loves Sushi, and doesn’t understand ‘Dub-Stepping’.
Chris has devoted his career to helping small to mid-size businesses develop successful digital media campaigns. He has worked in the U.S., England and Ireland on web-marketing teams within a variety of industries and verticals.
Chris has managed +$1mm in annual SEM budgets for clients, while maintaining a track record of revenue growth and overall client satisfaction. He holds various digital media certifications and is extensively versed in both SEM and SEO, as well as Email Marketing, CRM marketing, Social Media, Web Analytics, InBound Marketing and Digital Display Media.
An Omaha Native, Chris made his way out to west to attend Colorado State University, and has been enjoying life in Denver ever since with his lovely wife, and two dogs.
