In 1996, four years into his first job working at a water utility company, Jason fielded a phone call from his post-college roommate, Jerry McGee, who was working at a Newport Beach ad agency.
Jerry asked Jason, "Hey – do you know any of our bros that can do a website?" After a bit of a pause, Jason responded, "Yes. I can do it."
"No… seriously," says Jerry, "this is for a real client of mine, and I'm in a new job. I need to find someone that can really do this right."
"I can do it," Jason said.
After some back and forth on the phone and without any real backup plan, Jerry agreed to give Jason the business, charging Jerry $5,000.00 to do the site.
As you might suspect, Jason fought through and developed his first website. Then he did another one. Then another one. And another one. Finally in 1999, after years of nights and weekends balancing this new venture and his “real job” at a water utility company, Jason rented a 300 square foot office and put a sign on the door declaring Golden State Communications “Open for Business.”
As the company grew and added employees, our space grew with it, eventually growing out of our original space on 17th street in Newport Beach. Today, GoldenComm's headquarters is walking distance from John Wayne Airport in our own stand-alone building, equipped with fiber optics from street to desktop, a state-of-the-art computer lab, a library, a video studio, and a large sized conference room.
Today, GoldenComm still calls sunny Orange County home, but has grown to the far corners of the world, with offices in Wroclaw, Poland, Pune, India and Salt Lake City, Utah. Being on three continents and four separate time-zones gives us a 24/7 work cadence unlike most agencies.
The GoldenComm story is just beginning and we’d love for you to be a part of it. Give us a call anytime to hear what we can do for you.
