SEO Strategist

With 10 years of experience in all areas of digital marketing, web development, sales and project management, Jake welcomed the opportunity to join The Karcher Group (TKG) as a SEO Strategist. The NFL was Jake’s dream growing up, but after suffering too many serious injuries he decided golf was a better option. Now, Jake is the second Jake on the TKG team who plays golf on somewhat of a professional level. He has been teaching golf professionally for over 10 years. Outside of golf, Jake is passionate about helping businesses succeed online and spending quality time with his family.
