Minneapolis's DIGITAL MARKETING AGENCY
Get to know the amazing team behind the magic of #TeamTriton. Each of us takes pride in putting our heads down and grinding for our clients all day, but make no mistake -- we aren't scared of a little party after!
"CK" (short and to the point, like he is)
Corey’s name should have been Jack -- as in “Jack of All Trades.” It’s probably better his parents decided against that one though since JOAT isn’t as cool of a nickname as CK.
Appropriately named or not, Corey’s multi-talented knack and vision for helping small businesses (and every single member of #TeamTriton) succeed says so much about who he is. A risk taker that’s far smarter than he’ll ever admit (or that we’ll admit to him) -- which could be an admission in itself right there.
You know the guy that is friends with everyone, brings the best beer to the party, wins all your money during a night of poker and you still can’t imagine disliking him? No, no, not Matthew McConaughey . . . close though; we’re talking about Nick!
Known around the office for his quick wit and growling stomach, Nick is usually the last to arrive each morning (avoiding breakfast hours) and the last to leave each night. He’s like a ninja of sorts -- stealthily quiet and staying out of the limelight, hard at work on secret (extremely impactful) projects he’s busy perfecting before their rollout.
If Matt had a spirit animal, no doubt it’d be a golden retriever: always excited, always loyal, and always ready to hype you up to be in a similar mood. In fact, if you look up the qualities of a golden retriever, they desire to get along well with others (including strangers) and have an endearing love of life. They seek the middle ground and eagerly pursue compromise when conflicts come up.
Now that's Matt!
Always willing to go the extra mile to make sure our clients -- even those he hasn’t met yet -- are taken care of and that they feel our team’s excitement and commitment to their success. He loves learning just about as much about our clients as they know about themselves, and then telling everyone he can about the cool products or unique services they offer!
Need a sounding board? An event planned? A pep talk? A raise or a snack? Caryn is all that, and a bag of chips (literally . . . probably all while she’s drinking a Pepsi and singing 80’s R&B). Her ability to thrive best with a jam-packed schedule, and her past career experience, is the perfect foundation for all she does on the daily for #TeamTriton, and our clients too!
Never at a loss for words or solutions, Caryn is a walking billboard promoting all the people, places, and things she loves. Just make sure she’s had her morning coffee -- specifically from Caribou -- before you get her going.
A natural born salesperson, who craved adding marketing (and sugar) to the mix, Shianne excelled at taste testing most of the lemonade at her neighborhood stand while charging variable rates to her paying customers.
To this day, sweets are still her weakness -- while creating a variety of custom strategies and solutions for our paying customers is one of her strengths we can’t get enough of. Even if we have to feed her more than a dozen donuts and bags full of candy along the way!
Even if you didn’t know Amanda’s middle name is Joy, or her last name is Happy -- after spending even just 5 minutes with her, you’re bound to know why both are a perfect fit. Backed by her captivating smile and ongoing curiosity for life (and our clients’ businesses); she’s a bundle of joy . . . pun intended. And she lives up to her name, always enjoying life and encouraging others to do the same, whether eating poke bowls, collaborating on projects, pruning her houseplant jungle or hiking along the St. Croix!
In all seriousness, providing clients with high-performing SEO optimized content that generates the leads they need to build their business does make her happy. When you’re happy, she’s happy. It’s all in the name.
If you’re looking for someone to figure out a difficult equation or solve a formula—look somewhere else. Brittany has a creative soul, whether that means writing, making music, analyzing a television show, or finding innovative digital marketing solutions for her clients. But put a mathematical equation in front of her and all of her creative juices freeze.
While she might be slightly absent-minded in other aspects of her life, (you ever lose the remote and find it in the fridge?) Brittany is on top of her SEO game. When she encounters a challenge, she hyper-focuses on finding a solution and collaborates with her colleagues to execute a killer strategy.
Brandon is a self taught Web Developer with a passion for problem solving and creativity. Self-driven because of his love for web development and what he can do with it in the future, he’s known to get into the zone at his desk and be unreachable behind his ever-present headphones.
Properly nicknamed “Charlie Hustle”, Brandon goes the extra mile to accomplish his goals only stopping to look for what could be his next great challenge along the way!
It doesn’t take long to feel the positivity and energy radiating off of Chelsea. A self-described introverted extrovert, she injects her enthusiasm for life into every website design and photography shoot she’s leading. Don’t let her quirkiness fool you . . . she’s incredible at taking a vision and bringing it to life in a way that will have you wondering how’d she do that?
When Chelsea’s not indulging in the occasional scoop of Blue Moon ice cream or having a slice of pie for breakfast as a natural in the kitchen, she’s often teasing our team with wafts of leftovers she’s warming up in the microwave from her dinner the night before. Bon appetite!
Chad "I have no nickname" Schrandt
Director. Cinematographer. Storyteller. With years of experience in work spanning corporate, narrative, and commercial projects, Chad helps bring stories to life by setting visions into action. Multi-talented, and an admitted over-analyzer and over-thinking . . . he’s been known to tire himself out preparing for an upcoming shoot that the rest of us already know he’ll do incredible at!
Can he remake Star Wars from scratch? Probably not (Star Wars takes hundreds of people to make. Chad's just a man, a super awesome man, but a man nonetheless). But can he make your company look totally freaking awesome in a video? Absolutely!
Clark the Shark
It’s safe to assume that when Benjamin Franklin said, "Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing,” he was directing that quote specifically to Evan. A man of many words -- both written and spoken as smoothly as if the narrator was Matthew McConaughey, Evan is a client favorite often remembered as “the guy who said he'd off my competition for me”.
Having escaped the cornstalk-clutches of Iowa, Evan’s coolness continues to ooze outside of the office walls as he tours the area playing in bands, producing podcasts, and providing voice-over narration for the everyday trials and tribulations of his dog Tegan.
Pep Squad Captain
If Triton had a mascot, there’s no doubt who it’d be tailor made for: Jace! Full of passion for our company and our clients, he’d be the first in line to get a Triton tattoo -- temporary of course (you know the ones that you peel the back off and transfer with a wet paper towel) because you gotta draw the line somewhere). A self-taught web and graphic designer starting as far back as Middle School, Jace has made a full fledged career out of what he once thought could only be a “hobby”.
When asked about his current hobbies, family, and passions he naturally responded, “I really just love life and everything about it!” Hello . . . how can you not want a guy like Jace filling your office and Google Hangouts? He’s a team player and a full on jokester, which one has to be as a fan of the Green Bay Packers.
You know the scenes in action movies where some tech-savvy savant is able to hack into the mainframe or unlock the security codes so Tom Cruise can save the world? Yeah, that’s pretty much what Jared does on a daily basis, except instead of hacking mainframes, he’s researching keywords and performance analytics to boost our clients’ website’s online visibility. Still cool, right?
When he’s not crunching numbers and processing data, you’ll probably find Jared basking in the great outdoors with his family, taking a much needed break from the grit and grind of crafting another successful digital marketing strategy, and refusing to share his plethora of junk food and snack with his coworkers.
Not also known as: John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt
If you’re reading this, there is a chance you’re thinking: “Is his middle name Jacob Jingleheimer?” The quick answer to that question is no. But whenever he goes out, ‘some’ people ‘always’ shout how he’s a big hearted dude who develops quality solutions to your web design needs.
A former educator and self-taught programmer (learning “for fun” as far back as high school), John’s passionate about creating accessible and efficient products for clients and their customers. And while his computer desktop may look chaotic to you: he has a system (just don’t ask him to explain it in terms you’ll understand).
Kay-lee, Kah-lay, Kay-lay – pretty much anything but Kay-luh (the correct pronunciation)
Born in a small town and raised by Minneapolis, Kaleh has a story to tell about pretty much everything, but prefers to write it down first (if possible). Right-brained to the core, she brings a background in creative writing, journalism, and digital media production to #TeamTriton and leads our Content Team with a heavy hand of "Let me know how I can help!"
Self-proclaimed as “Prince’s Biggest Fan”, Kaleh herself is an incredible singer. Don’t go searching for her around the stages of Minneapolis (yet), you’ll have better luck catching her vocals when she doesn’t know you’re near or as a passenger in her car while she’s driving.
Since the early days of Triton Commerce, we knew it would be important to find employees who were talented in multiple aspects of web design, including front and back end development. Ladies and gentlemen, we introduce you to a man who has been all that and more since joining #TeamTriton in 2012: Ken! The man, the myth, the legend - he brings the designs of our clients to life.
Never one for turning down an adventure, Ken spends his time outside of the office exploring the nature surrounding him as he chases the landscapes of the Philippines. And lucky for us, he captures his expeditions wearing a go-pro fixed to the front of his mountain bike, scuba gear, motorcycle and more!
As one of the original employees of Triton Commerce, there aren’t many roles that Nimrod hasn’t held himself or directly effected with his day-to-day knowledge and skills. Always willing to jump into a project, using his web and marketing experience he’s helped find solutions for many of our customers, especially when it comes to search marketing.
Don’t let Nimrod’s tougher stance in his headshots fool you: he’s quite the softie when it comes to doting on his family -- especially in the kitchen. His Filipino cooking skills put a grin on his family faces, particularly when it comes to his Filipino style Adobo -- which he’s still promising to come cook in the office “someday soon”.
Growing up, we all remember our favorite babysitter -- the one we begged our parents to call first when they were threatening us with a “kid-free night out on the town”. The fun one, the cool one . . the one that makes even the worst chore or frozen TV dinner seem like a really good time.
Tif's that babysitter!
Could be her bubbly personality, her sweet way of asking (even on the 17th request in a row), or how she brings your favorite treats in when you least expect them (like after her beloved Packers crushed the Vikings). She’s definitely the one you don’t want to let down and risk getting added to her “do not answer” list the next time your parents need a night off. Because then you’ll be stuck being babysat by your mom’s great-aunt Bessie, whose idea of fun is teaching you how to properly clean her dentures.
“Any form of William you prefer”
Will, William, or whichever you like to call him, is the perfect combination of your childhood best friend and your college roommate: nonchalant, dependable, always up for a good time yet competitive enough to make you want to improve to beat him at the task at hand. From video games to TLC Network trivia, Will will give you a run for your money.
Will’s competitive nature is an asset for #TeamTriton and our clients alike -- it keeps him determined to execute the most effective paid marketing campaigns, all the while letting others think they’re winning thanks to his nonchalant demeanor. Don’t get too comfortable though, he’s bound to veere off quickly and pull ahead at the end!
With ever-growing knowledge and skills as silent and stealth as a ninja, Vlad has been part of Corey and Nick’s companies as far back as 20 years ago. A man of few words (except when it comes to the topic of Star Wars), he prefers to let his top-notch quality and speed of work do the talking.
A true team player, Vlad is the first to offer to jump in and help with projects across all divisions of Triton. His can-do attitude mirrors a quote spoken by none other than the Grand Jedi Master, Yoda: “No! Try not! Do or do not, there is no try.”
We're as real as they get, and we're ready to get sh*t done for your business!
