AMERICAN FORK, UT JUNE 01, 2016 — When we started 33 Sticks, we set out to create something unique and special. Not only was the services landscape quickly becoming littered with fly-by-night analytics shops and full service marketing agencies adding analytics as a “core specialty” but we had grown generally tired of the way analytics consulting was being done.
We saw clients getting low return on their investments by being sold high priced services that were then staffed by junior consultants, we witnessed first hand clients being sold “a bucket of hours” rather than value, and so we set out to change the way analytics consulting was done which started with a commitment to only hire the very best analytics talent in the world. In a continuation of this commitment, we are pleased to announce the addition of Jon Narong to the 33 Sticks family.
Jon brings more than 10 years of experience in the digital analytics space in both technical and business focused analytical roles. Jon joins 33 Sticks from lynda.com, recently acquired by LinkedIn, where he ran the digital analytics and optimization practice. Prior to joining lynda.com, Jon lead the analytics platform migration for the POPSUGAR media network. As an industry veteran, Jon’s tenure includes managing e-commerce analytics and optimization for Apple, Disney, and Beachbody.
Jon will play a critical role in extending our data insights, optimization, and personalization capabilities as we continue to increase the amazing value we are creating for our clients, all while fiercely challenging the way that traditional analytics consulting is done by living the life of a digital nomad.
As 33 Sticks continues to challenge the norms for how businesses are supposed to operate, Jon will be leading an effort to give back to the growing community of aspiring digital nomads by offering tips and tricks, views of his office setup, hacks for finding places to work, etc. As Jon moves out of Silicon Valley to pursue experiences overseas, his initial focus will be on providing leadership and insights around the benefits and challenges of working for a US-based company across international borders.
We are extremely excited to have Jon join us at 33 Sticks for the amazing value he will be driving for our clients, for the creativity he will bring to the team, and for his embodiment of what makes 33 Sticks different from everyone else in the space.
