Our Team is Led by Hospitality and Restaurant Experts

Paul Rakovich

CEO & Founder
The day after graduating with a Hotel & Restaurant degree, Paul moved to Las Vegas (in a very slow uHaul) and spent the next ten years working in restaurants. From managing 5,000 covers/day at the Café at Mandalay Bay to opening restaurants for Neiman Marcus, to the last five years of his restaurant career as a sommelier for Emeril Lagasse, Paul knows how restaurants work.

Before & after work, he ran an e-commerce business that would spark a passion for internet marketing. He transitioned out of the hustle & bustle of the restaurant world into his true calling, developing digital marketing strategies for exciting new restaurant concepts, aggressive hospitality brands, and a wide variety of businesses. He learned how to efficiently and effectively solve any industry’s universal challenge – finding and converting more customers

Ryan J. Jones

VP of Performance & Partner

Throughout his career, Ryan has held various titles. Still, one thing has been constant – a passion for solving business problems, whether it’s integrating online ordering systems with paid search or outranking national restaurant chains by optimizing for mobile. There’s nothing that motivates him more than tackling a new challenge. Ryan has helped hundreds of mid-size and large enterprises achieve a higher level of performance, improve conversions, decrease cost per acquisition, and increase ROAS. Everything and anything that challenger brands need to win in the market.

Having spent nearly a decade of his career in the hospitality and luxury lodging industry (including conferences, corporate meetings, fine dining, and food services), Ryan has extensive experience in marketing a range of related services. He uses this experience to lead a transparent, empathetic, and attentive team to ensure everything the agency does exceeds expectations and all campaigns run smoothly.
