Founder & Director of Digital Marketing
David (Dave) Veldt founded Interactually in 2013. His road to agency founder and current director of digital marketing began with graphic design in high school. That transitioned into web design and eventually web development. He started his first company in 2009, creating small websites for local businesses.
After graduating from Grand Valley State University, Dave combined his marketing education with his web experience and joined a full-service digital marketing agency as an SEO Specialist. There, he jumped into the deep end and worked with clients such as Polaris, Jostens, Cintas, Auto-Owners Insurance, Huntington Bank, and many more.
From there he worked with another agency and added PPC to his toolkit, managing many large ad budgets across several platforms, while continuing his work in technical and enterprise SEO. He rounded out his digital marketing experience by moving to an in-house role with X-Rite and their subsidiary company, Pantone.
With Interactually, Dave has led countless ad campaigns, SEO engagements, and analytics projects and has had the privilege of working with companies across many industries throughout the United States. In 2023, he led the company's pivot to a PPC agency with simplified campaign management packages, focusing our work and opening it up to small businesses as well as the large companies we have always enjoyed working with.
Dave lives near Kalamazoo, Michigan with his wife and children. He is an avid mountain biker and gravel cyclist, snowboarder, and Detroit Tigers fan.

Well, it's that time of year; when I get to kindly remind person after person that I don't really care for basketball. Surprisingly, I still have to follow that statement up with "Yes, that also means I don't want to participate in your bracket pool." Besides, it's Spring Training, and it should be of no surprise that baseball is a much higher priority to me.
There are plenty of common misconceptions about web professionals.
Developers don't care about design; they just care about making things work.
Designers don't care about development; they just care about making things look good.
SEOs don't care about design or development; they just care about rankings.
Those are just a few examples, but I call bullshit on all three.
