Josh Harcus is the founder and CEO of Hüify, an inbound marketing and sales agency. After observing the profound negative impact on revenue that disjointed sales and marketing teams create, Josh created an agency that did away with the practice of using the fluffy vanity metrics as a means for indicating success. Instead, Josh and his team focus on genuine, measurable, and attainable outcomes that help take Hüify’s clients beyond the stagnating threshold of mediocrity and into new levels of success for their brands.

Josh has consulted brands such as Car and Driver, Springer Global Publishing, HubSpot, and SureScripts. He has also spoken alongside Google, Facebook, Bing, and HubSpot, and at conferences such as INBOUND.
