Morty Silber – Is our CEO and lead marketing strategist.

Today, as a Wizard of Ads partner, he combines his education, talent, and expertise to help small businesses transform into big businesses.
Businesses want to grow, and to do that, they need to connect to the heart of the customer. It’s that connection that gets the sale. That’s marketing in its purest form, and Morty knows what it takes to make that happen.
