Drew Hendricks is the Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder of KOvima, a location video marketplace. KOvima is a global network of licensed drone operators, location videographers, and content editors who work with businesses that wish to incorporate geo-relevant video footage into their marketing campaigns.
Drew’s passion for location marketing began when he was wine buyer for one of the largest wine stores in San Francisco. 10 years of traveling the world tasting, purchasing and selling wine ingrained upon him a guiding principle that location matters. Location provides three essential ingredients to any successful marketing campaign; relevance, context and authenticity.
After leaving the wine industry, Drew obtained an MBA in Entrepreneurial Finance and founded a web development company named Nimbletoad to assist start-ups in building out their online sales and marketing infrastructure. Key successes include developing a fully automated marketing system for Hilton Grand Vacation whereby dynamic location content can automatically be displayed based on the user’s address and the online infrastructure for a wireless broadband network that connects the 23 isolated Indian Reservations across San Diego county.
When he is not coding or inventing new ways to harness the power of geo-location, you’ll find him surfing, hiking in the mountains, or fishing off the coast for yellowtail. He lives in Vista, located at the northern tip of San Diego, with his wife Brooke and their three dogs Nora, Oliver and Stevie.
