Paul Staten
CEO / Managing Director

As a teenager I always felt that I would be an Entrepreneur when I grew up. Little did I know that building HTML & Flash (yeah flash…) websites and working at a computer shop would shape me into the person that I am today.

Attending LDS Business College 2003-2005, I set some life long goals for myself. One was to create a business before I was 25 and I did that by creating a computer repair and IT support company called Computer Fix that still exists today. I have had opportunities to partner in many different types of businesses from lawn fertilization to house clearing and computer repair to internet marketing and even photography. I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing business partners and people that have influenced me for the better. I am thankful for every employee I have ever had for what they have taught me.

My family is my everything. My amazing, beautiful, determined wife Annie is my rock. My kids are the most beautiful and joyful things in the world. I am happy to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is a source of peace and joy in my life. The values of integrity, loyalty, and charity are all things that influence my decisions as a CEO and Entrepreneur.

Nicholas Dutson
CTO / Creative Director

At SEOWerkz, I offer a wide-array of services to our clients. I want to be a ‘one-stop-shop’ place for businesses wanting to market their company online. If you are marketing online, or need to be, I can help you. Whether it is custom website design, or wanting to develop an online marketing strategy, I will show you exactly the right path to take, utilizing the newest strategies, and always making cost conscious decisions.

Tired of that old rusty website of yours, as it snails along the internet freeway? You never want to send anyone to it because it’s simply embarrassing? Or has your business just evolved and you need something Incredible!? Start with a blank canvas, and lets get it done…I will work with you to lay out your thoughts and goals, and I’ll bring it to life in an interactive design!

Ironic as it may sound, we’ve had to spend relatively little to no time and effort in marketing our own business. Our enduring success is largely the result of client referrals. That’s extremely validating.

Chris Siebeneck
Senior Account Executive

I am an Account Executive for SEO Werkz. I am a native Utahn and was raised on computers by my programmer mother. I have been an advertising professional for 15 years with a wealth of know-how in the online marketing field. While working at KSL, SEO Werkz showed that they are able to optimize sites without contracts, while showing their work and getting real results.

I am helping business owners who have been burned by SEO companies in the past, they are frustrated by SEO promising results and not getting them, and concerned that they are signing a contract without any reporting on the work being done.

Calin Hess
Director of SEO

I specialize in SEO and content management with experience in PPC, eCommerce and WordPress. I have a degree in English from Brigham Young University which fuels my drive to produce high quality marketing content for the modern digital age. I enjoy working in the ever changing digital landscape and am well versed in search engine optimization for enterprise level sites down to small small web stores. I know what it takes to help optimize sites in terms of search-ability, user experience and conversion.

I am certified in Google AdWords and Google Analytics as a Google Partner.
