Gene Filipi: President, San Francisco American Marketing Association (SFAMA)
I have had the privilege of working with Golden when he was Social Media Director at the SFAMA and he has also worked as a social media consultant for Kinesis Survey Technologies, where I am also Sales Director. I admire Golden’s passion for Social Media and he is a true leader in the Social Media space. He’s a team player, flexible and always dedicated to any project or job he works on. He is success driven, intelligent, honest and sincere. I consider Golden my expert consultant in everything social. I highly recommend Golden and would be a huge asset on any team.
Kemp Edmonds: Founding Solutions Consultant, Hootsuite Media Inc.
I had the opportunity with Golden in his role as Global President of Social Media Club, a large, diverse, non-profit organization. Golden was an organized leader who did an incredible job bringing together and synthesizing diverse voices and needs into a cohesive vision for the organization. Managing to motivate and engage an organization made Golden someone I consider a go to for leadership best practices and practical knowledge of how to be successful leading a diverse organization
Stephanie Werneke: Senior Associate, Capital One 360 (Formerly ING Direct)
Golden was an amazing Manager. Not only did he set me up with all of the tools and resources necessary to do my job well, he was an excellent resource for social media best practices. He really knows the landscape and I learned everything I know in regards to social media thanks to him. One of my favorite traits of Golden’s is that he is always positive and optimistic. It made for better problem solving within our projects. Overall, I would recommend Golden for any position that was in Social Media or Marketing management.
Carol Wyatt: HR Director, Carol H. Williams Advertising
Golden’s passion, determination and interest in advertising, marketing and promotional communications is not only admirable, but inspirational. Not many times in my career do I meet someone as unselfish, determined and interested in not only the industry itself, but also in meeting or exceeding expectations in the areas of self-knowledge, awareness and most importantly, helping others. Golden’s entrepreneurial spirit is the type of attitude that businesses source out in order to create model employees from. It’s generational and hierarchial type of growth and development business models that utilize individuals who think and behave like Golden that allows individuals to go from the entry-level account person to the President of the corporation. We would consider him for an opportunity at any time and I feel my HR colleagues who don’t lack awareness on how to identify a talented individual in the marketplace would feel the same.
