With more than 10 years of senior leadership experience at Goodway Group, Friedman has led a diverse and growing remote workforce team while strategizing platform developments and leading product enhancements to ensure advertisers get the most value from their spend.
“Jay is a proven leader and strategist. Goodway Group is a family owned operation, and Jay has quickly become an integral part of our company’s family,” said David Wolk. “With Jay’s help, Goodway Group has developed into a leading partner for advertisers looking to drive performance and value. We were able to transform from a direct marketing company focused on print to a cutting-edge digital media company.”
As CEO, Wolk will continue to guide Goodway forward, working closely with Friedman and the company’s leadership team. He will continue to focus on building a thriving company culture while also maintaining strong existing customer relationships and cultivating new business.
