This Monday, Feb. 22, Open Coffee will hear from Taylor Trusty, CEO of Blackstone Media.
Trusty started working as a programmer at age 15 and by 17 was the head of customer service and webmaster for a sports memorabilia ecommerce company. At 20, Trusty had started and sold his shares of an upstart sports collectibles company before founding a new web design/development agency, Blackstone Media.
Since the company’s inception, Trusty has been the guiding force that drives the team to continue cranking out the best web and digital marketing solutions around. With his in-depth and intuitive understanding of human behavior, company culture, branding and well-balanced user experiences, Trusty continually challenges his team to not only use the latest and greatest cutting-edge tools and technologies; he encourages them to create those tools, and make them better…and better again.
A Louisville native, when he isn’t busy running Blackstone Media, Trusty can be found at a local CrossFit box working off his cookie habit, spending time with family and friends or, on the off chance that he’s sitting still, reading the latest tech brief from Elon Musk and his Tesla and SpaceX ventures.
Blackstone Media is a full-service, digital agency with offices in Louisville and New York City. Founded 10 years ago, Blackstone Media’s key clients include Toyota Industrial Equipment, Mercer, ORR Corporation and PetFirst Insurance.
