Aaron Utterback is the founder of Charleston, SC-based boutique digital media company Akkala, LLC. After 4 years working as a project manager with a digital marketing agency, he started Akkala as a referral only content production, design, development, and marketing firm. After tiring of seeing customer satisfaction take a back seat to the bottom line, Aaron centered Akkala around on finding creative solutions to complex problems and customer-focused scope and pricing models often lost in the agency world. This unique approach led to creative production projects for clients ranging from an international marketing agency, The Mighty Shed (projects for RJ Reynolds, Fernet-Brancha), to NYC based entertainment group The Golden Trailer Awards, and even a local brewery.
In addition to digital media, Aaron is an accomplished musician and songwriter. Serving as the principal songwriter for Charleston-based band, Human Resources, he has amassed multiple millions of plays across major streaming services.
