About Blythe Brumleve
In 2008, Blythe Brumleve was working as a waitress and a blogger with a dream of owning her own company when she received an opportunity to work in the world of logistics. As an executive assistant to the C-suite, she gained first-hand knowledge of the daily operations of a $140M asset-based logistics provider. Knowing about her blogging side hustle, the executive team allowed her to take on the additional responsibility of the company’s digital marketing initiatives where over the course of 5 years, orchestrated two website redesigns, implemented an inbound marketing initiative, and established a sales outreach plan. After 5 years and following the unexpected closure of the logistics company, Blythe chose to seek opportunities in traditional marketing and media. During this time she served as editor in chief of Void Magazine, B2B copywriter for an ad agency, and radio/TV broadcaster in the North Florida market. During this time, her team earned several awards including three ADDY’s plus earning runner-up as Jacksonville’s Best Radio Personality. Eventually, Blythe would use these skills to fulfill her entrepreneurial goal by founding Digital Dispatch in 2018. Present-day, Blythe and her team oversee the management of dozens of websites to help the one-person marketing team flourish. In addition to running her company, Blythe is also a co-founder of the Jacksonville Podcasters Unite community, hosts the tech/B2B marketing show Cyberly on Freightwaves, and serves on the board of the Transportation Marketing and Sales Association.
