January “Food For Thought” Luncheon with Joe Koufman from Setup
January 23, 2020 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
Join us Thursday, January 23, for a unique discussion with Joe Koufman, CEO of Setup, LLC. He will share how to become a successful, (semi)professional business matchmaker and explain how you can apply these skills to your marketing and business relationships.
Joe Koufman is responsible for introducing three married couples and countless business relationships. In early 2014, he parlayed his passion for connecting people with his deep relationships with marketers and agencies to found Setup™ (http://Setup.us), which is a marketing matchmaker. Before that, Joe spent six years leading business development and marketing for Engauge (acquired by Publicis Groupe in 2013 and merged with Moxie) and eight years growing strategic accounts for KnowledgeStorm (acquired by TechTarget in 2007).
Joe continues to give back to the marketing community by serving on the board of directors of the American Marketing Association (AMA Atlanta), the Atlanta Interactive Marketing Association (AIMA), and the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia. He also volunteers weekly at Everybody Wins! Atlanta, and participated in the Entrepreneurs’ Organization Accelerator program. Joe often jokes that he uses his Speech Communications major from Wake Forest University every day and his Politics major more frequently than he would like.
When Joe isn’t working, he loves to discover new music (he hosts a weekly radio show at http://GumboShow.com) and spend time with his wife, Michelle, and their twins – Joss and Radley. Most weekends he is supporting his kids’ activities, running, playing tennis, and immersing himself in music.
