Where I have worked
In the ~two year window Koka and I worked together, I feel like I had this crazy front row seat to the guy’s professional journey. From the early success he had laying the foundation for LinkedIn’s social selling business, to then developing a content marketing vision for LinkedIn’s consumer marketing team, to later leading LinkedIn’s global social media efforts. Koka’s proven he’s a rare, versatile talent. I learned a ton working with him, sincerely enjoyed being his teammate too.
Koka is, quite simply, one of the most knowledgeable and professional social strategists in the industry. As a global industry principal at Hootsuite, he worked tirelessly to arm our sales teams with the knowledge and expertise they needed about digital strategy to get meetings and close deals. He’s earned his stellar reputation the industry and I’d recommend him to anyone looking for a senior social marketing expert for their leadership team.
The one thing that separates Koka from the rest is his passion and depth for social and sales as a whole. There are very few people that understand the sales and marketing landscape from a data and revenue perspective to get true results that drive change. Koka has been instrumental in my growth personally and professionally in the last year and a half. If you ever get the chance to talk or work with Koka… I’d highly suggest you use every second of it and apply every piece of it!
