Once upon a time, two Canadian hockey dads got together to create the biggest small business digital marketing company in the world.
Courtney Hutzul, with over 15 years of sales experience and a passion for the tech industry one day decided it was time for a change of pace from a very successful career in Real Estate. He knew he wanted to work with small businesses but not yet how.
Brad Daoust, with over 16 years of experience in the technology and consulting world around the same time felt as though he needed a change of pace as well. He wanted to start working with small businesses he felt he could make the biggest impact with. His issue was that he didn’t possess the skills nor have the network to connect with all the small businesses that may need him.
One day at the rink, they got talking about the solutions and consulting that Brad has been doing for large enterprises over the years and how he would like to bring those expertise to small businesses. They both agreed that nobody is really helping the small businesses succeed. Courtney started talking about business owners he knew that were struggling finding new customers through ordinary marketing techniques and that those friends could really benefit from Brad’s technical services.
Boom! The digital marketing company was unofficially born. After months of pilot projects and countless lunches to their favourite Vietnamese restaurant, the company launched with a load of interest in Edmonton.
As mentioned above, Courtney has over 15 years of sales experience in the Automotive and Real Estate industries. Courtney’s strength is in his ability to seek out, create and foster long-term business relationships by establishing a foundation of trust, over delivering on his promises and providing tremendous value from the solutions that he is part of implementing.
Brad is running the technical side of the business, armed with over 16 years of search engine optimization, software development and management consulting which has given him the ability to deliver and exceed expectations for all of White Hat’s clients.
It is with this partnership that the “Google Guys” have built and are continuing to build the biggest small business digital marketing company in Edmonton…..then Alberta and then the world.
