The Names & Faces Behind the Work
"Brilliant marketer and the best hire I ever made."
Brilliant marketer and the best hire I ever made. When we needed someone that could to take our marketing - in the most critical time of a hyper-growth company - and make it scaleable, make it broader, and make it better than any of our competitors, she delivered. I’d say that year-over-year 100% revenue growth for the following 2 years speaks to her strategic vision, but also her ability to get involved in the production of everything we were doing. Something that s an essential part of over-delivering in a startup environment. It also meant long hours, relentless hustle, adding new marketing channels, growing our brand (while protecting it with a diehard attention to detail), and pushing not only herself, but her team.
"Gia is wicked smart, and was quickly able to give me direction that I've been able to run with"
Gia is wicked smart, and was quickly able to give me direction that I've been able to run with, that will help us scale our marketing team and improve how we approach marketing strategy as a company. Her questions and insight are sharp and on point. She helped me more than she likely knows!
"A huge driver of the company's growth"
Georgiana's contribution to Unbounce has been immeasurable. She was instrumental in creating the extremely high standards we hold ourselves accountable to today in marketing, and a huge driver of the company's growth.
"She was able to help me prioritize and navigate challenges, so they started to feel more like opportunities."
I wasn't sure how much how much progress or impact there would be during an hour call with Georgiana. As an early stage startup, it's easy to lose sight of the value of marketing when you're wearing many hats. She was able to help me prioritize and navigate challenges, so they started to feel more like opportunities. It's reassuring to know Georgiana is available with her SaaS marketing expertise to be a resource while building and growing a SaaS company.
"The brand loyalty and trust we have today within our market, and the thought leadership that we're respected for — we wouldn't have any of that without her."
Gia was integral to a period of growth that helped define Unbounce as a leader in our market. Her drive, dedication, attention to quality (and the details that matter,) and general influence had such a significant impact on our business. The brand loyalty and trust we have today within our market, and the thought leadership that we're respected for — we wouldn't have any of that without her. She played a key role in everything from helping us define our core values as a business, our vision and mission statements, and levelling up the content marketing bar to which we're often measured against in the industry. Gia is an executer and an incredibly experienced marketer that would be invaluable to any organization in the digital marketing space, especially SaaS.

Georgiana is a digital force of nature, pure and simple. She’s a consummate pro, delivering in her sleep (sometimes literally) and cutting into any task with laser-like marketing acumen.
"Georgiana is a driving force for increasing standards of professionalism, quality and thoroughness of execution"
Georgiana is a driving force for increasing standards of professionalism, quality and thoroughness of execution and tenacity in striving towards hitting new-customer targets. She contributed an enormous amount to Unbounce's success and I am confident that anyone working with her will find her to be committed, hard working and focused in everything she does.
"She drove our marketing to meet a consistently high standard, repeatedly recognized as best-in-class."
Through consistently amazing work, Georgiana provided our marketing team with examples of "what 'good marketing' looks like" and inspires an ideal of passion and quality that our whole marketing department strives to meet even in her absence. She drove our marketing and content to meet a consistently high standard, repeatedly recognized as best-in-class. At the same time, she played the role of VP, director, mentor and friend to me and many other colleagues. I'd recommend Georgiana for any project or role where quality cannot be compromised.
"I genuinely could not have asked for a better experience."
I scheduled a strategy session hoping to get clarity and direction on our rebrand process and rollout. Though it was a relief to know that generally I was on the right path, the call was a huge help in identifying opportunities that I had overlooked. Thanks for your help, Georgiana. I was a was a bit intimidated coming into the call but I quickly felt like you understood my situation and were all hands on deck to help. I genuinely could not have asked for a better experience.
"If you should be so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with or hire Georgiana, do it, don't think twice."
In the startup ecosystem there is a lot of chatter about hiring "A" players. Georgiana is a rare example of one, a true professional. When we launched OpenDesks, building a community was a critical task. I called Georgiana and she led our community building initiative from that moment. She also made key contributions to SEO, SEM, analytics, brand strategy, marketing, PR, messaging, and copy. Her social media efforts were directly attributable to press coverage by Entrepreneur, NYT, and WSJ. Her technical skills are sharp; her instincts for all things digital are even sharper. If you should be so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with or hire Georgiana, do it, don't think twice.
