The Team of Marketing Specialists Behind AGENCY
Jason Herzog (Portland)
President and Chief Technical Officer
Jason built his first website in 2000 and has been specializing in the tourism marketing industry since 2007.

He knows that all of our marketing efforts need tracking to measure their success. He’s behind the technology for both Tourism Engine and The Colorado Marketing Travel Network. Jason can build anything – from websites, complicated forms & automated surveys, to reservation systems and even racecars. He delivers solutions on time and budget, and his calm & patient demeanor puts our clients at ease when he’s leading big, complicated projects.
Jason loves international travel and is fluent in both French and Spanish. He also serves as Vice President on the board of l’Alliance française de Portland.
