Josh Pierry CEO & Founder

Josh Pierry CEO & Founder

As CEO and Founder, Josh Pierry has watched what is now Pierry evolve from a humble consulting firm to a full-scale international digital marketing company specializing in MaaS (Marketing as a Service), a term he coined and feels best describes what Pierry provides.

An alumni of American University, Josh holds a BA in International Relations, has studied at Ritsumeikan Daigaku and Moskovskij Gosudarstvennyj Lingvisticeskij Universitet, and is fluent in both Japanese and Russian.

Josh is an avid traveler, but what he loves most is being a husband and loving father of two children. He also sits on the board of the Redwood City Chamber of Commerce. In his free time, he enjoys grilling, beer, and a good bottle of wine.
