Meet the Elements of the Team
Training, creative, and marketing agencies are only as good as what they achieve. It doesn’t matter that we’ve been around since 2011, but what matters are the successes we find for the trainees that come through our program.
The only way to create meaningful results every day is with great people who truly enjoy and excel at what they do. So, we make sure we only hire the best. Talent goes beyond a keen eye for design, detail, or a qualification on a piece of paper. We collectively live and breathe what we do, we’re enthusiastic and take pride in doing the best work we can.

Entrepreneur and commercial financier Kris Roglieri recognized the need for a standard to be set in the marketing industry for people who wanted to be educated in digital marketing. Kris took this idea one step further, by offering people the opportunity to launch their own digital marketing agencies without needing any prior experience.

Having worked for nationally recognized Internet Marketing Firms over the years, Joe brings those strategies, lessons learned, and tactics to the various clients, niches, and graduates that the Digital Marketing Training Group works with on a daily basis.
