My name is Andrei Korchagin, and I’m a sales and project specialist living in New York City. I’m a finance and economics graduate of Boston University, and I'm currently a co-founding partner and Director of Strategy and Partnerships at the media company Hello Goodbye.
I have a multidisciplinary skill set across the fields of client and account management, project management, business development, web development, and digital marketing. I’m appreciative of design thinking and its business implications. I understand and write code, and I work with APIs and the web. I can be the liaison between technical and non-technical stakeholders. I can put together and run a digital marketing campaign. However, my strengths are in those skills collectively as they solve big-picture challenges, rather than as individual specialties.
When I'm not working, I love photography (as well as digital photo manipulation), exploring New York City, traveling around the world, and fitness.
I've worked extensively with dozens of clients on nearly one hundred projects, big and small. I've helped new brands go from an idea to a fully-formed business, as well as worked with larger companies gain a better understanding of their market and how to reach them. I've sold (and helped sell) various products and services throughout the process, and helped source and facilitate partnerships involving a variety of stakeholders.
More specifically, I’m proficient in:
+Sales and business development
+Some backend web development (PHP, Liquid)
+Platforms such as Shopify and WordPress
+Account and project management
+Paid and organic social and search marketing
+UX and brand strategy
I take lots of pictures, edit them in various ways, then put them up on Instagram under @andreikorchagin.
I write a bunch about topics in tech, photography, digital strategy, branding, and whatever else interests me.
