Digital marketing specialist

Behler-Young

The pandemic has been a challenging time for Behler-Young, but with Cameron Young at the digital marketing helm, the company was able to quickly pivot and enhance its online strategy, product offerings and platform features to better serve customers, who can be technology-averse at times.

As a result, Behler-Young’s online sales volume nearly doubled in the past year and a half, and the company as a whole experienced its best year ever in 2020 and is on pace to eclipse that in 2021.

“I’m proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish and the effect I’ve had on our community, both professionally and with organizations I’ve been involved with,” Young said. “I have experienced some challenges, but I have tried to use my hurdles as growth and learning opportunities and then go on to better our community for people in similar situations.”

Young served for nine years on the board of directors for Disability Advocates of Kent County, during which time the organization almost doubled the size of its current budget. He currently is co-chair of a $2.5 million campaign to fund a move to a new location for DAKC.

Just prior to the pandemic, Young joined the board of trustees at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital.

“We serve as advisers and financial stewards for the hospital, and as a former patient, I take that role seriously,” he said. “The hospital is in great shape, and the improvement in culture from 14 years ago when I spent three months there as an in-patient is amazing.”
