About US

A brief history

Originally, Mernin Headland which was created to provide an agile and transparent approach to online marketing. Co-founders Kris Headland and Andrew Mernin formed the business after working together on projects for multiple companies which included Hot Watches, EnergyLink, Hunters Moore, Workwear Express, and DDCA. Kris has helped firms grow online since the dawn of digital marketing and has amassed a wide range of experience in various market sectors. He has a unique perspective in marketing from growing, and then selling a family retail business. In 2017 Andrew Mernin left the business to focus on his publishing company and so Kyle Headland joined the business, after working for a number of gaming companies. Now a family business, we’re flexible and up front about our costs with a proven track record of delivering success for our clients.
Our culture is simple and easy to follow – we believe in each client we take on so we put our complete dedication and passion into their business to make sure that they see the best results, and therefore put their trust in us.
