Helene Kwong, CEO & Founder
Hi, I am Helene Kwong and I am the CEO and Founder of Hashtagitude. I grew up fascinated with the digital world and social communities and am an early adopter of the major social networks: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram. I have fast thumbs and can out-tweet many other professionals in the industry.
Hashtagitude was created because I saw a growing need within the business community: an opportunity to turn a business’ online presence into an extension of their local communities. I have helped conferences such as Launch Festival, SXSW V2V, and 360|Intersect strengthen their Twitter communities through my live-tweeting and engagement with attendees during the conferences.
I graduated from George Mason University with a Bachelors of Science in Marketing. I am an active leader of Women of Denver, and previously volunteered as a social media strategist for Leads Group 7 of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, SheSays Denver, and Ignite Denver.
Ryan Kane, Chief Visual Officer (CVO)
Hi, I am Ryan Kane and I am the Chief Visual Officer of Hashtagitude. The CVO is the visual expert of the team, bringing my passion for design, photography, and videography into Hashtagitude. An architect by day, you can find me behind the lens of a camera after work. I enjoy experimenting with various photography tools in my studio to perfect my craft. Digital marketing is increasingly becoming visual. Brands and professionals need a cohesive visual message across the internet to help humanize their online presence.
I graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder (Go Buffs!) with a Bachelors degree in Environmental Design and Architecture, and from the University of Colorado-Denver with a Masters of Architecture. I look forward to working with you and your business.
William Thompson, Digital Marketing Strategist
Hi, my name is William Thompson and I work as a digital marketing strategist for Hashtagitude. I specialize in building strategic, creative content. Some areas of expertise include: content marketing, search engine optimization (SEO), photography, and graphic design. I graduated from the University of South Alabama with a double major in Marketing and General Management. The marketing industry make me incredibly happy and I’m proud to be a part of it through Hashtagitude
On a personal note, I’m a Denver transplant from beautiful Huntsville, Alabama. My childhood consisted of exploring nature which translates perfectly in Colorado. Coming from the South, I have a natural affinity for college football (SEC is all that matters). I also love my homie Rueben (my cat): he is an amazing cuddler. If I’m not hiking, I could be found reading a book I’ve already read, aimlessly wandering around Denver, or surfing the web.
