Ross Hudgens founded Siege Media in August of 2012. Siege, now going on six years old, made the Inc. 5000 in 2017, in addition to being named one of San Diego’s Fastest Growing Companies. In 2018, Siege was also named one of Inc’s Best Workplaces, and also has an office in Austin, Texas.
Before Siege, Ross worked in the insurance and mortgage space building websites from launch to #1 rankings for extremely competitive queries. Ross’ work has been featured on Moz.com, Search Engine Land, Forbes, AOL, Hacker News, among other outlets.
Ross also frequently speaks at conferences around the world, including appearances at MozCon, OMCap, ionSearch, LeadsCon, and Seattle Interactive, among others. Ross received a B.S. in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing from Chapman University in Orange, CA.
In his spare (work) time, Ross enjoys blogging, whether on Siege Media or about entrepreneurship and running an agency on his personal blog. He also enjoys spending time with his wife Melissa and their dog Goldie, whether that means working on the house, going on hikes, or enjoying pour over coffee at a local hipster coffee shop.
And these are a few of his favorite things.
