"We are disappointed to see Ryan go but we know he will find continued success. We are extremely thankful for the leadership and devotion he has put into ProfitFuel," said Jared Slosberg, President of the company. "His innovation and focus have driven sales growth for our customers and, in turn, that has been cause for growth and hiring within our company itself," Slosberg continued. "We were aware of what Jeremy had created at BigLocal and once we started talking with him, the deal was sealed for us -- it is an honor to have Jeremy join our team."
At BigLocal, Kuhnke built a scalable solution to help small to medium-sized businesses achieve positive online presence. "I'm excited about being in Austin and becoming part of ProfitFuel," said Kuhnke. "Both ProfitFuel and BigLocal have paved the way for the small business owner to find success. I feel like I'm picking up a few steps ahead of where I left off at BigLocal about a year or so ago. I feel very at home; when I walked through the doors at ProfitFuel, I felt the excitement – the energy is contagious!"
