Humans of HubSpot: Brian MacKey and Leo Lehrbaß
2 weeks ago - last edited a week ago
This week we want to spotlight Brian MacKey and Leo Lehrbaß from our Community. You may know Brian better as BriMackey.
Brian and Leo shared some insight about what they do for work, how they met, and how they started with HubSpot.
Tell us about yourself
We, Brian and Leo, met at HubSpot in 2019, working as Technical Support Specialists in the Dublin office. Knowing the ins and outs of the software was, and still is, our bread and butter. If we don’t know something, we know where to find the answer. The excellent training we received at HubSpot alongside the coaching/tutelage from our managers and colleagues allowed us to develop the appropriate skills in business software and strategic consulting that truly helps businesses grow. Shortly after our time together in support, Brian became a Partner Success Manager in HubSpot while Leo already left the company in 2020 to start freelancing: Building websites and CRMs for his growing client base. Combining technical know-how with strategic knowledge, we don’t just tell people what to do but also teach them how to do it.
How did you start using HubSpot? Was it in your current role, or a different role?
We both started using HubSpot as employees of HubSpot! Now we help other users of the platform reach their full potential.
Tell us a little bit about your company and your position.
The Baskey Freelancer Collective was founded by Brian Mackey and Leo Lehrbaß in 2021. We are a group of freelancers working together to consult and implement marketing, sales and service software for our clients: namely HubSpot software. What we offer is different. The person you talk with on your very first call with us is the same person that builds your chatbot and landing pages, sorts out your CRM, implements GDPR measures, manages your ads and consults with you on a one-to-one basis, explaining what he/she is doing along the way. We want to teach, implement and help you build your organisation, not just "tick the boxes“.
What do you do for fun outside of work?
