It’s also a great group of people who are committed to making your marketing accountable.

Bede Fahey

Co-Founder and Chief Technical Nerd

Team-Photo-BedeYes, the accent is real. Bede Fahey originally hails from Christchurch, New Zealand, a beautiful and technologically sophisticated country that happens to have more sheep than people.  Bede has worked on hundreds of websites, search engine optimization campaigns, and social media plans for Lancaster businesses and non-profits. Bede’s passion is to help these organizations achieve the online visibility and results they deserve.

 

Kae Kohl

Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Nerd

Team-Photo-KaeKae Kohl was raised in Delaware County, PA and attended Cornell University, freezing through four Ithaca winters to get her Bachelor’s in Economics. Better weather beckoned her to San Francisco where she spent 20+ years honing her marketing and sales skills in financial services, venture capital, and consulting to technology companies like IBM, Apple, and the computer gaming industry. In addition to sometimes commuting to work via cable car, Kae also was co-author of the first ever Mac/PC compatibility guide published by Apple.

 

Chelsea Benson

Competitive Research & Social Marketing

We discovered Chelsea at Elizabethtown College, and she’s been wowing us in the years since. Chelsea is an excellent and disciplined marketer. She helps Kiwi with market and competitive analysis, social media research, and excels at everything we ask her to do.

 

 

 

Luis Quiroz

Graphic Design, Photography & Research

Team-Photo-Luis

Luis joined us recently as part of his ongoing education about marketing while pursuing his second degree, this time from Millersville University. Luis has high standards, both for himself and our clients. He is unfailingly pleasant to work with and his photographic and research skills, in particular, are of great help to us. Luis originally hails from Peru and will be assisting Kiwi with its bilingual marketing initiatives. Somos muy afortunados.

 

 

Melissa Rugh

Project & Administrative Coordinator

Melissa joined our team in 2013 as a contractor to help us with administrative tasks. We loved her detailed oriented style and dedication, so we asked her to sign on and be a Kiwi. Now, she assists with all aspects of our client projects, including research and web work. She likes to be kept busy and we are happy to accommodate her.

In the rare moments we leave her in peace, you can find Melissa matching wits with her teenage son or helping her younger son understand the new common core math homework. During the precious moments that she finds for herself, she enjoys reading or working in her garden.

 

David Saunders

Research/Writing

David is a scholar and a gentleman who performs research and writing work for Kiwi. David is incredibly articulate and was the creative voice behind the infamous Dr. Mal tweets for Field of Screams, for example. Because David also graduated with honors in Philosophy, he points out (rare) fallacies in our logic, when we permit him to do so.

 

 

 

In addition, as part of our commitment to helping build the Silicon Susquehanna, Kiwi works with interns from local colleges and job skills programs throughout the year. We’ll introduce them to you when they’re involved in your project.
