Jacob is well versed in the world of marketing, gaining his first experiences while in college where he was a marketing assistant for the #1 ranked University of Kentucky Basketball Team. Throughout his college years, he was also one of the main points of contact for the University’s Public Relations Department, and studied marketing and PR in London, England where he expanded his international knowledge of the industry. Apart from his marketing experience, Jacob has also seen the web development side of the business while working as an IT consultant for many years following his graduation.

Jacob Smith, COO


Jacob was born and raised in Western Kentucky, where he learned there are no shortcuts to getting the job done right. He is engrained in all aspects of the SEO business with Gladiator and is dedicated to ensuring our clients success.

“Back in high school, our football coach always told us, ‘It’s the little things that matter.’ I didn’t appreciate the trueness in that statement until I started working in SEO. Everyone in this game nails the big stuff, but it’s the ones who sweat the small stuff that really stand out. That’s what GLM is all about – we’re the ones who pay attention to those little details that make a big difference.”

When Jacob is not behind his computer screen you can often find him at the lake with friends or taking a hike with his dogs Sammie & Gracie during the summer months. He is also an avid reader and huge Kentucky sports fan and always tries to make it back to his alma mater a few times a year to catch a game.
