Derek Griego was born in Colorado and shortly thereafter his family relocated to Southern California. Since then, he lived a large part of his life in Central Ohio and relocated back to Southern California in 2010. In May of 2018, he will be relocating to San Ramon in the East Bay area of California. Derek went to college at Columbus College of Art & Design in Columbus, Ohio where he majored in Time Based Media Studies learning computer graphics and 3D animation.
Derek got his first job in Sales and Marketing over six years ago and loved being outside and meeting new people every day. His role then moved into selling satellite television to business owners where he really found his passion; helping business owners. He loved sitting at the table with small business owners and offering them a solution. Derek found a digital marketing agency, Revlocal, through a colleague and was immediately impressed by the mission statement. He has been helping small businesses tackle the ever-changing landscape of digital marketing for over five years and loves the challenge that it presents and how every day is different. Now, Derek is a team lead and is very excited to build Revlocal as a household name in the bay area of California.
As far as his personal life, Derek enjoys spending time with his wife and his family. He loves being outside and enjoying the wonderful weather that California has to offer. He is a huge sports fanatic and enjoys football the most out of all the major sports. Derek loves music in the form of live concerts and even plays multiple instruments which started with the guitar when he was 12 years old.
