Who We Are
Meet the Team
We’d like to open our kimono, so to speak, and introduce you to faces behind the names at MKG Media Group.
Mike Krass | CEO & Director of Business Development
Professionally, Mike made his bones optimizing paid search campaigns & running social analytics reports for full-service advertising agencies in Los Angeles and Seattle before knocking heads with Kerry to open the doors at MKG.
Since the inception of MKG, Mike has been busy introducing new clients to MKG’s two key mottos:
- Measurable media
- We deliver loyal customers to our clients
Give him a call to discuss white water rafting, managing your brand’s leads through the product marketing funnel or how to avoid serious injury when you go running with the bulls in Pamplona next year.
Kerry Guard | COO & Director of Digital Marketing Strategy
Kerry is an East Coast native currently living in Sunny Silicon Valley with her Entrepreneur husband, Attack Pattern’s CTO.
Kerry comes from an eclectic background from assisting fashion photographers and apparel stylists in Philadelphia to interning for the in-house stylist at DKNY to landing her first real grown up job on Madison Avenue working for the biggest advertising agency in the country.
When she got her first job at Universal McCann planning TV, Print & OOH on the Verizon Wireless Account in 2007, she was told by her Uncle, who was working in sales, that under no circumstances was she supposed to like her media planner gig. It was merely a stepping stone to help her move to New York and become a photographer. Low and behold, Kerry let her Uncle down as she fell head over heals for Excel sheets and PowerPoint presentations.
After working at three other major agencies (Publicis Modem, MEC, & WDCW) on big brands such as Verizon Wireless, General Mills, Microsoft, Western Digital, etc. she partnered up with Mike Krass on this new venture in an effort to pave her own media destiny.
Christian Bullock | Director of Search
Christian graduated from Washington State University in 2006 with a degree in Communications and an emphasis in Advertising. Shortly thereafter, he started his professional career at a small search marketing agency in Portland, Oregon where he had to wear many different hats and, consequently, learned about every facet of online marketing. His fortes in search marketing include paid search and organic search engine optimization.
Christian enjoys playing ice hockey – a sport he picked up recently – and having tea parties with his daughter, Marleigh.
