Meet the Key Players

Inbound marketing is all about working together — and though we might be a bit biased, we think we've got the best team around. From logistics to website design, content creation to project implementation, the Digett team's goal is to give you a website that pulls in visitors and converts them to customers. We are a passionate and creative group of individuals dedicated to bringing the greatest ROI to our clients — and having some fun in the process.

Mark Figart
Founder and President

Mark left a senior management position at Emerging—a Houston-based consultancy and professional services firm—to form Digett in 2001. His consulting experience includes extended energy and finance industry engagements with AIM Investments, Goldman Sachs, Delmarva Power, Schlumberger and others.

As a career marketer and Drupal aficionado, Mark brings to the table a passionate belief in the power of great content, as well as the knowledge and experience accrued through 20 years of consulting experience to successfully put that passion to work. By keeping Digett focused on driving continued improvement of marketing ROI, he has built a unique and in-demand suite of professional marketing services geared toward bringing clients more and better sales leads. 

Valarie Geckler
Director of Client Services

In an office full of creatives, someone has to be grounded. Valarie—or “Geckler the Reality Checkler,” as she’s known—is plenty creative herself, but she’s known around here for her pragmatic, eagle-eyed approach to project and budget management. She also specializes in Information Architecture design and Drupal administrative interface configuration.

Valarie serves as the liaison between clients and the Digett production team coordinating the execution of content marketing strategies, so our clients know her well. They just don’t know she can crush them at Trivial Pursuit. Well, they know now.

Wes Mills
Marketing Analyst

Wes' passion for market trend analysis, campaign optimization, and web analytics make him a great asset to our clients. As an AdWords Certified Individual, he's our clients' go-to resource for pay-per-click campaign management and optimization; he's famous for improving results, generating more leads, and stretching clients' marketing dollars further. Our clients love the extraordinary results he delivers.

Alexander Fountain
Web Strategist and Developer

Alexander is a senior developer with a degree in web programming and analyzing. He has a keen instinct for determining the most efficient way to address client requirements and build complex functionality. Alexander pays special attention when architecting administrative interfaces to create an intuitive backend experience for all site managers.

However, don’t expect this adventure-seeker to spend all of his time in front of the computer. Alexander has been known to enjoy outdoor activities like camping, bicycling, and cross country skiing, and spends most weeknights with Pat Sajak, Vanna White and his two cats Lucius and Anastasia.

Emma Ruehl
Marketing Coordinator
It's rare that you won't find Emma's nose dipped under her laptop exploring the latest graphic design blogs or in literature studying story arc and syntax. She's an Adobe Creative Suite aficionado with a knack for design layout and photo manipulation. She has a passion for harnessing the tools of the written word and the arts to convey specific marketing messages. At Digett, she uses those skills to polish blogs, social media posts, web content, and other marketing collateral to create meaningful impact for brands. For her, it's hard to use the word "work" to describe the gift to pursue creative strategy and lifelong learning.

When she's not in the marketing sphere, she loves to see the outdoors, travel, roll sushi, and buy more antiques than she needs. She also has tucked away copious amounts of movie and music trivia that she's determined to find a use for some day. 

Natalie Ortiz
Digital Project Manager

Natalie graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a major in Management Informations Systems from the University of Notre Dame. With over 7 years in the tech industry, much of her experience lies in operations, customer relations and project support. Planning and processes come naturally to her and she thrives in the nitty-gritty of daily ops. She previously completed a 4-month immersive learning program focusing on full-stack web development, which gave her a hands-on foundation for programming and designing sites on her own.

Outside of work, Natalie considers herself an aficionado of music with an encyclopedic knowledge of classic pop and rock music. Come football season, she lives for college football and managing her fantasy football team.
