DEREK JOSEPH HERNANDEZ
Digital Marketer & Storyteller
I am a seasoned content creator with a passion for marketing and digital engagement. My 10+ years of business and publishing experience have prepared me to take on any challenge in today’s ever-changing digital landscape.
The Extended Bio –
Breaking into the marketing scene at the peak of the housing and credit crisis in the 2000s, my work aesthetic can be described as part survivalist and part innovator.
I managed to nab not one, but two marketing gigs in the housing industry to start my professional career. I’ll admit that probably wasn’t the smartest thing to do during that time of volatility and layoffs, but those experiences allowed me to quickly learn that in order to survive and thrive in the business world I need to mold my skill set to address whatever challenges stakeholders deem most important.
I carried this mindset throughout my career, and the experience I’ve gained taking on various marketing-, sales-, and content-oriented roles has turned me into a versatile marketer and content creator.
My progressive career path includes unique experiences across various industries. You name it, and I’ve probably done it.
I've lead national marketing campaigns for a former Fortune 500 company, launched a syndicated sports blog, created the digital marketing and public relations standards for a nationally recognized franchise, and consulted some of the nation’s most renowned names in the medical field on their SEO needs.
Before leading the charge for Hudl’s content marketing efforts, I served as the director of internet operations at a software company called Summitsoft. Fun fact: During my time there I worked alongside one of the executives that introduced the Nintendo gaming console to the world.
