Team

The Swamp

At Purplegator, the most noteworthy asset we have is our team. Each team member has a pretty mean bite in terms of the talent they bring to the table. As a result, our team is our competitive advantage. While there are plenty of agencies out there offering marketing services, our team puts us in different league. Consequently, we value our quirks, as those are exactly what makes us the best digital marketing agency out there.

Every member of our team plays an important role in creating the magic that happens at Purplegator. We firmly believe in the company’s mission. We are all uniquely suited to our roles. Most of all, we are both excited and inspired by the work we do each and every day. And, we have a lot of fun doing it, too. In conclusion, we value each other and we embrace the diversity that we call The Swamp.
