Evan James Griffin: 20 in Their 20s
Evan Griffin began his career selling online marketing solutions at local tech company OrangeSoda, where he developed a love for digital marketing and technology. After having several successes there—including building OrangeSoda’s first learning management system/partner certification program—he continued his career at MityLite, where he was integral in helping to execute the company’s rebranding campaign and subsequent website.
Griffin says when he looks back at his career collectively, he is most proud of the moments where he’s been able to bridge the gap between sales and marketing. “Every great ad, tool, system or marketing outreach that I executed is at the result of identifying a need with sales and solving it together with a team of highly creative individuals,” he says.
Outside of work, Griffin is a talented baseball player—he even participated in an open MLB tryout in 2014 in California—and is the published author of an iPad children’s book. He has also received BYU’s public speaking award, the J. LaVar and Helen Bateman Memorial Award.
Favorite activity to unwind: I love to grab dinner and a movie with my wife.
What do you watch on Netflix? I watch a ton of documentaries on Netflix. When I’m not watching that, I usually watch The Office or The Wonder Years.
