Gate 39 Media, a full-featured marketing and technology agency serving the financial and agricultural industries, announces the addition of L7 Mixed Media, expanding its leadership team with L7 founder Keller Hawthorne as its new Marketing Technology VP.

Sacramento-based L7 Mixed Media is a digital growth agency that works with under-resourced marketing teams, in traditionally sales-driven organizations, to execute growth strategies using inbound, digital marketing, and sales enablement.

The combination of services provides customers with an expanded set of resources, knowledge and experience and delivers best-of-breed marketing, sales, and operations-related services.

In addition to Gold Tier HubSpot Agency Partner status, Ms. Hawthorne brings 20 years of corporate marketing experience to Gate 39 Media, advising firms that include Intel, GE, and a subsidiary of Xerox. She specializes in the development and integration of Inbound sales enablement strategies and marketing automation, leveraging digital systems and CRMs.

By combining forces with Gate 39 Media, a HubSpot Platinum Agency Partner, L7 Mixed Media clients will enjoy a full-featured agency experience that includes marketing, multimedia, technology, and sales strategy services. Gate 39 Media will also employ the L7 Mixed Media team, rounding out the Gate 39 Media talent pool.

“I’m excited to join the Gate 39 Media team,” said Ms. Hawthorne. “We have big plans to help marketing and sales teams leverage data and technology to expand their reach, automate their outreach, and develop growth strategies that impact their bottom line. With many businesses being forced to focus solely on digital growth strategies this last year, we’re well positioned to make their transition to digital technologies easy and lucrative.”

“In addition to our Inbound marketing and advanced technology services, sales enablement and operations management is a critical component of our specialized agency expertise for financial and agricultural clients,” said Gate 39 Media President, Shane Stiles. “We welcome Keller as a key playmaker in our clients’ successes, and we welcome L7 clients to Gate 39 Media.”

This news follows Gate 39 Media’s October announcement that the firm earned a 2020 Gramercy Institute Financial Content Marketing Award in the Global Consumer Lending category for developing a Crypto Investing eBook for DrawBridge Lending / DBL Digital.
