The Team at Social Firm

Our Team is Motivated by Your Company’s Success

We’re just a small group of motivated go-getters determined to unlock the full potential of your brand. Nothing motivates us more than empowering our clients to succeed.

Jeff Harris

SALES

Born near coastal NC, I found a genuine love for the ocean at a young age, especially surfing and fishing. While working as a waiter during college, I discovered my love for helping others. Perhaps it’s that southern hospitality that is stamped on my DNA, but I believe success comes from genuinely listening and caring about what a person needs, then doing everything I can to help them find the very best solution.

I attended my first Buckeye football game in 1995 and immediately fell in love with all things OSU. I also spent many years as the lead vocalist for a successful local band, and as the singer/songwriter for an all-original band too.

Sheena Erney

ACCOUNTING

I spent over 10 years in corporate banking and quit corporate life to be a stay-at-home mom before my second child turned one. I love taking my four little ones on adventures, but I missed the hustle and bustle of work life. It’s exciting to work for a small business where we can so easily stay up to date and develop our processes as business needs change. Best of all, I get to work with my husband!

When I'm not working, I enjoy golf, reading, traveling and playing cards. Watching our four children learn and grow is one of the greatest joys of my life.

Brandon Jones

DESIGN DIRECTOR

I’ve had the pleasure of watching the internet grow into what it is today, and have a never-ending passion for making it a better place, one website at a time. The most rewarding part of my job is knowing that what I can produce from a blank canvas has the potential to take my clients’ business to the next level. Their success means the world to me.

I have a beautiful wife, Britney, and together we have three amazing young children. I enjoy grilling out, competitive bowling, and being a Dad. Oh, and Buckeye Football is life.

Terence Womble

CONTENT MANAGER

I spent the first half of my career working in public relations and marketing mostly in New York City but also in Toronto, Philadelphia and Columbus. Even with clients as diverse as Philip Morris, The Philadelphia Coca-Cola Bottling Company, Shakespeare in Central Park, CAPA, Jazz Arts Group, or Broadway shows, the common theme has been compelling stories. Helping craft and share stories for our clients is my passion.

Other passions? Sure. Tennis, jazz, classical music and classic disco; reading, documentaries, fact-based dramas, and forensic crime shows. I also enjoy a perfectly mixed and presented Manhattan – up or on the rocks.

Geno Marinelli

DIGITAL SPECIALIST

A fresh graduate from The Ohio State University, I’m excited to absorb as much as I possibly can! With prior experience in both advertising creative and strategy, I’m excited to learn from the best. I enjoy staying ahead of the curve, understanding or contextualizing the latest trends and developments in tech and Marketing. If there’s a disruptor, I want to know how it works, why it’s working, and if it can work for us.

As a Digital Marketing Specialist, I will assist in strategy, implementing changes and new initiatives on behalf of our clients helping them to reach their goals and achieve results. My favorite part of any final reveal is the before and after; the side-by-side comparison of the old and the new motivates me to always be looking for new and innovative ideas.

Ally Gatien

DIGITAL SPECIALIST

Since graduating from the University of Dayton in 2021 with a focus in Marketing, I have worked for both a small local media agency and a large television station. In my professional career, I am most recently coming from a Digital Sales Coordinator role where I was able to focus in on all Digital Marketing tactics after learning about the world of broadcast TV. I am passionate about helping others and I look forward to being able to help countless local businesses as a Digital Specialist on a more efficient and effective scale!

Steve Glick

LEAD WEB DEVELOPER

My background consists of a wide variety of experiences that help give me a unique perspective to everything I do. I'm all about blending my love for visual arts with my knack for problem-solving to create stunning websites. I see each website as a canvas where I can combine the technical with the aesthetic to truly create something special.

When I am not at work, I enjoy time with my wife and son. We enjoy everything from hiking in the park to a family game night. You can usually find me catching live music or frequenting one of the many festivals Columbus has to offer.

Laura Elliott

PAID MEDIA MANAGER

I have been in the digital marketing space since graduating from Xavier University in 2012 and I have experience in both the B2C and B2B realms. I specialize in digital advertising and have seen how it has evolved and grown over time. It has been exciting to keep up with all the new developments and changes throughout the years in the world of advertising and I thoroughly enjoy researching ways to leverage these changes to improve success for my clients. Throughout my career, I’ve honed and adapted my skills in data analytics and lead generation and enjoy learning about new industries and driving success for each of my clients!

When I’m not at work, I love to spend time with my family and traveling. My main goal is to travel all over the world with my husband and son!

Julie Englerth

EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT

Julie is fully remote and hails from Longview, Texas, deep in the heart of the “Piney Woods” of East Texas where she lives with her husband and three amazing kids. She is also an experienced worship leader at her local church where her husband is a full-time worship pastor. Julie is passionate about encouraging and empowering people around her, leading worship, leading small groups at her church, or spending time with her loved ones.

She works closely with Matt in day-to-day communications and strategic planning. She has a knack for learning new things quickly!

Doug Bierl

STRATEGIC PROJECT MANAGER

I have an inherent desire to help people and I like to figure out how to best connect people with something they need. That led me to a career in marketing and client services, primarily in marketing strategy and planning in product management, advertising account management, and marketing consulting.

When I’m not at work, you may see me walking the streets of Westerville with my wife, Julaine, or in a cafe meeting with a guy talking about life and faith. I value time with family, staying physically active and being outdoors brings me energy and joy.

Jason Willis

CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Like many in the design world, I started out as a freelance. My early career was on the sales and marketing side of business, and I’ve worked with, and for several large companies. However, my greatest joy is helping and sharing in the success of locally owned organizations.

When I’m not tailgating at an OSU game or playing tennis, I love traveling and creating new experiences with my best girl Kelly and my sweet dog Charlie. I like visiting all the new restaurants popping up around town and seeing which one can make the best Old Fashioned.

Matt Erney

STRATEGIC MARKETING DIRECTOR

After founding Social Firm in 2010, I learned that having a healthy business online requires an equal balance of messaging, design and marketing. My vision is to help businesses compete in the marketplace by simplifying, clarifying and then amplifying their message.

I currently lead the Strategic Marketing team at Social Firm. I believe that to achieve greatness, one must be intentional and move quickly with focus beyond one’s self. I love Columbus and am energized by helping businesses realize their digital potential.

Airlite Plastics

Working with the Social Firm team on this project was seamless. We worked mostly with Brandon and he somehow knew what we wanted even before we ourselves knew. We couldn’t be more satisfied with the completed project. We will definitely be using their services again in the future.

"I looked around and considered many, many companies to help with my projects. After talking with this team, the search was over. These folks are the real deal, and I would urge you to consider what they might be able to do for you and your social presence. The cost, by the way, is very reasonable for the services provided, but it's the intangibles that make Social Firm such a valuable presence in my world."
