Brady Akers Associate Director

The amount of data available to businesses can be overwhelming. That’s where Brady comes in. He’s a self-professed data nerd who loves nothing more than helping clients understand how to use data to build upon their successes and discover new areas of growth.

“I’m like the nerdier version of Sherlock Holmes,” he says, “I enjoy solving the mystery of how something worked or didn’t work, and that answer is almost always out there with data.”

Brady, who joined MCG in November 2017, has more than a decade of experience in developing digital marketing campaigns for companies from startups to large corporations including Bankrate, DISH Network, IBM Watson and Stapleton Denver. He has expertise in all aspects of digital marketing including email marketing, analytics, social media, advertising, websites and copywriting.

Before joining MCG, Brady worked for SmartAcre, a digital marketing and lead generation firm, where he helped one client realize a 60 percent open rate through email newsletters. As a result, the client saw three times more webinar attendees than projected. He also worked as SEO and digital strategy manager for ALM Media, LLC.

While data is Brady’s passion, he also brings creative power to his clients with experience in writing blogs and video scripts. He wrote messaging for a DISH Network social media campaign that included a video that became, at that time, one of the most engaging videos ever produced specifically for Facebook. In his free time, Brady keeps up with his writing as a contributor to PorchDrinking.com, a national craft beer blog.

Originally from Pine Village, Indiana, population 217, Brady has a degree in public relations from Ball State University. He, his wife and their dire golden retriever, Hank, live in Denver, where they enjoy the outdoors and cheering on the Colorado Rockies.
