Vice President of Business Development

Clinton is our fearless leader of the Two Oceans Digital team. From Senior Account Manager to Director of Sales and Marketing to his most recent role as V.P. of Business Development, Clinton has advanced as our agency has grown. He is always pursuing new ways to take our clients to the next level. No one gets more stoked than Clinton about new technologies or solutions that we can offer.

Clinton graduated from Boston College with a degree in Political Science. Prior to Two Oceans Digital, he served as a Network Systems Consultant from 1997 to 2000 and was an Internet Consultant in Boston from 1995 to 1997.

When he’s not in front of a computer, you can find him with his “girls”. A proud father of two daughters, Clinton and his family are always on the move on the Island.

Clinton currently serves on the boards of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association, the Florida Keys Sanctuary Advisory Council, and the Key West Rotary Foundation.

 


Lauren Oropeza, Director of Destination Marketing

Lauren Oropeza

Director of Destination Marketing

In 2009, Lauren joined Two Oceans Digital, became certified in Google AdWords and qualified the company to be the only Google Partner in the Florida Keys. She developed the Search Marketing department and managed it from 2009 to 2015. Today, as the Director of Destination Marketing, Lauren focuses on the Florida Keys & Key West account, fla-keys.com. She has helped lead the fla-keys.com site to be recognized in 2011 and 2015 as the leader in Florida for Web Design and Mobile Marketing.

Lauren graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and Communications. In the digital space, she comes to the aid of clients who have a fear of writing. Lauren learns about what makes people/businesses/brands different and tells their stories via their web sites.

Lauren still spends plenty of time on Google. With a new baby boy, questions abound. These days, her Google searches include various forms of ‘how to keep baby from [insert household item]’, ‘babyproofing [insert room of house]’, ‘homemade [insert seasonal vegetable]’ baby food.

Since 2013, Lauren has served on the Board of Directors of the Florida Keys SPCA.

 


Jeff Bergman, Director of Search Engine Marketing

Jeff Bergman

Director of Search Engine Marketing

Jeff earned his Bachelor’s Degree from Ithaca College in Voice and Sound Recording Technology. From there, he cut his teeth in marketing while working at a Chicago record label where he headed promotions for the label and its artists. And no, we won’t name drop. Let’s just say that Jeff has worked with an impressive list of musicians. This experience more than prepared him for any eccentricities of his Two Oceans Digital clients.

In 2013, Jeff joined the Two Oceans Digital team. Jeff easily transitioned from musical tracks to become our Chief Tracking Officer. In 2015, he became manager of the Search Engine Marketing department. Jeff is a Google AdWords Qualified Individual with specializations in Search and Display Advertising.

Also a Google Analytics Qualified Individual, Jeff has taken digital analytics to new heights. He can infer so much about your web site visitors, it’s scary. But what is even scarier is running a business and website without his insight. Without his analysis of your website and its performance, you are shooting in the dark. Jeff ties it all together and makes sense of how to maximize your website and return on investment.

And when he’s not generating and tracking traffic on your site, Jeff’s interests include computer programming, cats and going to bed at a sensible hour.

The Wilson household is home to two dogs, two cats, two bunnies, two turtles, a pony and too many fish to count (but likely an even number).


Jenny Lorenz, Marketing Strategist

Jenny Lorenz

Marketing Strategist

In June of 2015, Jenny joined Two Oceans Digital. From her previous role in hospitality marketing, she brought extensive experience in SEO, Google AdWords, social media, blogging, and e-mail marketing. With a list of experience that mirrors the ‘Services’ page of this site, Jenny was a perfect fit for the Two Oceans Digital team.

Born and raised in Chicago, Jenny graduated from the University of Wisconsin–Whitewater with a B.B.A. in General Business. In Milwaukee, while working at a major Midwest retailer for nearly a decade, Jenny held positions in eCommerce, advertising and buying. When her husband had the opportunity to transfer to Key West, Jenny was more than eager to trade the cold weather for island living.

If you think you cover a lot of ground on a given day, just know that by the time Jenny sits down at her desk in the morning, she’s already run 3-5 miles. She’s primed and ready to take on the day. At local 5K races, you can catch Jenny striding by. These are a breeze compared to the four Chicago Marathons she’s run. Anyone who runs 26.2 miles for fun knows that achieving goals takes hard work, dedication and strategy.

While Jenny brings so much to the table, our favorite is her peanut butter balls, an instant hit and game changer in any meeting.

Maja has painted coconuts for two Key West retailers for years, and she regularly donates her artwork for charitable auction to the Florida Keys SPCA.
