How A Strategic Team Makes You Shine

I am frequently asked how we get so many set ups in a day and how we stay on schedule and budget while shooting. The answer is my Elite Team. I am nothing without my team and they make me shine everyday.
There is another team that is behind the scenes at Hurlbut Visuals: my Strategic Team. The reason that we have been able to accomplish so much in a short period of time (4 months) is because this strategic team has my back.
Teams are so important because they create:
- Innovative ideas with brainstorming
- Synergistic learning
- Rapid growth
I want to emphasize the importance of each team member and their unique contribution in bringing together the final product.
Here are the Key Strategic Team Players at Hurlbut Visuals:
Lydia Hurlbut: Marketing strategist and joint venture planner. She coordinates the efforts of our amazing team and keeps forging ahead with our growth vision.
Ryan Fritz: Web design guru, social media expert, marketing strategist, editor and technical trouble-shooter. Ryan makes the site look amazing and can handle whatever snafu technology decides to throw our way. He does photography as a hobby and owns a Canon 5D Mark II, so he gets the visual language! Ryan always over delivers. His company is www.rynotechnologies.com
Nate Zich Graphic artist, business card wizard, label designer. Nate makes all of the Hurlbut Visuals assets look phenomenal and interesting. The most amazing thing about Nate is the turn around time and the fact that he is never fazed by deadlines. He is reliable and amazingly professional. His company is www.simplydesigninc.com
Russell Hand Business manager, CPA, business plan writer, and handles whatever other financial needs that arise as we grow. Russ keeps costs to a minimum and values reinvesting. He specializes in the entertainment industry and constantly changing tax law. I have known Russ for 22 years since he first did my taxes and I have recommended him to many friends. Russ rocks! His company is Russell D. Hand, CPA.
As we grow this year, I know we will add to this core group! We have many exciting things planned for 2010 and a few unexpected surprises.
