Get To Know Us Better

Digital Mark Group LLC (DMG) was founded by Stephen Hodges and Dano Ehler at the beginning of 2013 to fill an urgent need for effective Programmatic Marketing in the Portland area. Both founders, with a combined 20 years of digital advertising expertise, recognized that effective and cutting edge digital solutions are in heavy demand with local and regional advertisers, so they decided to change things. The previously existing solutions were not always the best fit; technology was lagging, minimum monthly spend requirements were high and quality/ROAS wasn’t consistent.
