In 2014 Akvile launched AKvertise, Inc., a search and social advertising agency in Paso Robles, California.
Akvile DeFazio, president at AKvertise, Inc., is one of those rare individuals who knows how to tap into both sides of her brain. Artistic and science-minded, for DeFazio, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Her parents, Lithuanian immigrants who left during the Cold War, were artistic and scientific as well. “My mom was a professional piano player and became a piano teacher,” DeFazio shares. “My father is a doctor who started his own practice. Watching them create their businesses was a powerful inspiration for me. Even with ups and downs, it was clearly very rewarding for them, which made a big impression on me.”
In 2014, DeFazio launched AKvertise, a search and social advertising agency in Paso Robles, California. As a conversion-driven marketer, she's passionate about helping businesses understand their customers and the path to decisions, and then creating a digital strategy to help reach their goals. Her expertise is in e-commerce, event marketing, mobile apps and lead generation, among other things. Most of her clients are midsized businesses, but she also works with enterprise-level and small businesses.
