Meet Jake

Jake has been with Sparklight Advertising for 4 years. He is a multiple recipient of the “Sell Smarter Award” from Ad Mall, a company we partner with that gives us the data and tools to sell in a competitive marketplace. In 2021, he reached his sales budget in July! His team says “Jake is a valuable member of our Sparklight family, always willing to help out wherever and whenever he can.”

Q: What is the best part about your job:
A: The best part about being an Integrated Media Consultant is shared success with clients when they see the results of their campaigns, when they win, we win.

Q: What is the best part about working for Sparklight?
A: The best part of working for CableOne / Sparklight is my team’s family atmosphere and the wealth of knowledge they bring to the table. Joining such a tenured team was intimidating at first but they were very eager to share their ideas of what works and what doesn’t in the world of ad-sales. I am forever grateful.

Q: How are you involved in your community?
A: I take part in as many Cable One Cares or other volunteering events as my schedule allows.

Q: What’s your favorite holiday and why?
A: Halloween. I love watching old horror films during the entire season.

Q: If there was an eighth day in the week, how would you spend it?
A: An extra day at the lake on the water with my family would be at the top of the list.
