Tony TellijohnTony Tellijohn

A veteran of more than 15 years in the web marketing space, Tony has developed and managed marketing projects for nearly every type and size of company you can imagine. What started as a hobby while studying marketing and advertising at the University of Minnesota quickly turned into a passion, when at Capella University he was given the assignment to “figure out why we don’t show up for the term  ‘online university’ in Yahoo.” (That’s right — Tony’s been doing this longer than Google has been around!) After spending years on both the client and agency side, he co-founded Aktion Interactive and specializes in business development and digital marketing strategy & execution.


When Tony isn’t in front of the six monitors he’s currently rocking in his office, he’s inevitably spending time with his wife and two little ones, or doing something involved with sports. (Sometimes this involves all three — writing about sports on his laptop while watching the kids and the game. Now that is multi-tasking.)
