From Fort Myers to Oxford, England – Our Founder Is Doing Big Things!

Our very own founder here at Stickboy Creative, Reema Bhatia, has completed the CIO Academy at the University of Oxford in England!

While attending the prestigious technology program, Reema (who is also the CTO of Jet’s Pizza and founder of Vectra Digital) acquired invaluable skills that she plans on implementing into her clients’ IT and digital marketing strategies.

At Oxford, she fine tuned her knowledge and insight into how companies can compete in the digital environment as well as digital strategy and maximizing use of The Cloud.

“Being a CIO today requires me to participate in boardrooms and to be able to bridge the gap between business and technology, ” explained Bhatia, “I believe it is my role to initiate and lead digital transformations. To this end, all my technology strategies have the cloud, mobility and big data as the main pillars”.

(That’s her!)

The CIO Academy at Oxford is exceptionally unique due to the combination of world-leading faculty, cutting-edge research and the shared experiences of a truly global, highest caliber peer group!

Congratulations to our fearless leader and global IT expert! We can’t wait to see the amazing things you will accomplish in the future!

 

Introducing Vectra Digital

Our founders, Matt Bernhardt and Reema Bhatia, have launched a digital agency devoted entirely to digital marketing and website design called *drumroll*…. Vectra Digital!

Vectra is the chosen digital agency for clients in various fields such as in national e-commerce, restaurant chains, medical and local businesses.

Vectra allows companies like yours to leverage digital advertising to…

-Achieve higher search rankings

Vectra can also handle your company’s Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Remarketing, Reputation Management and Directory Marketing.

Our CEO Matt Bernhardt is also the CEO of Vectra. When we asked him what his thoughts were on launching the new digital marketing studio, he said:

“The foundation of our company is data-driven decisions. We looked at the digital marketing landscape and saw that local companies were not getting quality marketing with data to back up performance and decisions. Being a team of developers and data architects, we knew we could bring a fresh and exciting way of thinking to the industry. We are currently employing various big data analytics and machine learning algorithms to bring unprecedented ROI to our clients’ marketing budgets.”

One of the really cool things about Vectra Digital is that the company implements effective digital marketing strategies so clients can focus on building their businesses. The team’s process is results and numbers driven so every dollar spent has data that justifies it. Vectra Digital has successfully increased brand awareness, online visibility and generated leads for numerous differentiating enterprise and franchise companies.

Vectra Digital is led by Emmy Award winning digital strategist and design expert Harrison Ambs. Harrison leads the design team at Vectra to provide clients with sincere and quick customer service and has produced award-winning work with clients such as Golf Channel, CBS and NBC, Al Jazeera, Powerball, Capital One and more.
