Dedicated. Driven. Devoted.
That’s how we would describe Dylan Tevlin, Client Executive, here at M Marketing Inc. A tenured leader within the company, starting a month after M Marketing Inc’s formation, Dylan has created a name for himself as a goal-driven, go-getting, powerhouse within our marketing & sales team! With an outgoing personality, premier education, and resilience of an entrepreneur driving this young man’s career, this is not the first time you’ll be hearing Dylan’s name on our WordPress page.
Born in Edison, NJ and raised in Wellsboro, Dylan grew up an athletic child, playing in every sport from football to baseball and golf. Finding his calling behind a golf club, Dylan grew up playing in The First Tee (a youth development organization that teaches golf and its values to young people), and eventually made his way onto his High School’s Varsity Team! Learning self-control, self-management, and leadership skills through golf, Dylan naturally assumed roles in school as his class’s Vice President and National Honor Society Co-Chair.
A social butterfly, Dylan chose Penn State to pursue a degree in Political Science and Pre-Law with the intentions of being a lobbyist after graduation! As if being a scholar wasn’t enough, Dylan put himself through school working full-time as a bookkeeper for a local grocery store. Though he doesn’t use his accounting skills at M Marketing Inc, he does attribute that job to teaching him discipline and attention to detail which he applies to his marketing & sales responsibilities today.
After graduating in December of 2015, Dylan immediately moved to Baltimore to attend the American University of Law in August. With 8 months to spare before classes started in August, Dylan immediately began seeking jobs in the area that would provide him extra experience before law school. It was then he stumbled upon M Marketing Inc and came him for his preliminary interview.
Despite not having any experience in marketing and sales, Dylan said he went into the interview process confident in his ability to sell HIMSELF. Despite understanding the opportunity to move into management, Dylan’s initial focus was on making money and learning some short-term skills. It wasn’t until the company flew him out to Dallas for a national conference held by our client broker that truly opened his eyes to the long-term opportunity. Dylan instantly made a decision after that influential trip that within a year and a half of starting with the company, he would move into a management position.
When an opportunity arose in January to help M Marketing Inc expand into Chicago, Dylan jumped at the experience. 2 months quickly passed in Chicago and when our Gaithersburg office needed his assistance with training and interviewing, Dylan returned and has since exceeded every expectation and goal set for him. With a plan to be in an Operations Management role by July, and overseeing his own office location for our client in Charleston, SC, by October, Dylan says he’s seen more professional development from himself in a year than his combined 4 years in college.
We asked him what his 3 points of advice would be to someone starting in the company and he said:
