FREDERICK, Md. (PRWEB) September 27, 2018
Frederick native Tobin Lehman is celebrating the ten year anniversary of his startup digital marketing firm, New North, with a grand opening and ribbon cutting on October 3rd.
Born and raised in the city of Frederick, Tobin has been an active community member among entrepreneurs, business leaders, and religious organizations in the city for over twenty years. Proud parents of four kids, Tobin and his wife are active members of a local church—a philosophy and culture that Tobin applies to his business as well.
New North was born after Tobin felt the need to make a difference in the world beyond his 9-to-5 cubicle job. With a background in web development and design, Tobin started the company in 2008 with a focus on building websites but wanted to leave room for expansion. Ten years later, the company now has seven employees, a brand-new office space, and is a leading expert in business to business digital marketing. Clutch.co ranked New North as the top content marketing firm in Maryland.
New North recently moved from an 800 square foot space into a 4000 square foot space on South Carroll Street. While New North needed to expand, Tobin was adamant that headquarters remained in downtown Frederick. New North prides itself on its culture, much of which comes from its location. Over the summer, the agency takes weekly Thursday runs to the tune of Alive at Five and has morning bagel runs to local coffeeshop Beans and Bagels.
Tobin’s strong Christian values impact New North’s cultural and business tenets. Each month the company donates a set amount per employee to Compassion International, a Christian organization that helps orphaned and impoverished children in third world countries. Staying true to Tobin’s original purpose in starting the company, all employees volunteer once-a-quarter at the Frederick Community Action Agency and with Habitat for Humanity.
With the growth of his startup over the past ten years, Tobin continues to look toward the future— both of New North and the Frederick community.
