How Digital Can Drive Your Business Results

A Keynote Speech & Interactive Q&A with founders Jimmy Furlano & Tyler Murray of Tyger Shark

Tyler Murray and Jimmy Furlano founded the national and internationally successful Creative Digital Agency in 1993 and are leading thinkers and doers in the world of digital marketing and commerce. Their team of hard-working suits, nerds and artists don’t let any task intimidate them, and they’re driven by the goal of reshaping the digital world through inventive creativity, coding philosophy and their collaborative nature.

Tyger Shark has executed thousands of successful marketing campaigns, modern website builds and created sharp graphic designs. Together, they’ve generated over $50 million in eCommerce sales for their clients.

Jimmy Furlano and Tyler Murray are the groundbreaking founders of Tyger Shark, a cutting edge Digital Creative agency based in Barrie that has generated over $50 million in e-commerce sales for their clients – including Disney, Ford, Taco Bell, Gatorade, Telethon, NFL, Toronto Raptors and the Toronto Maples Leafs, to name just a few.

Furlano grew up in Barrie, graduated from Toronto’s Ryerson University with a business degree, and further developed his entrepreneurial drive by owning and operating a commercial and industrial contracting company.

Murray was born in Newfoundland but raised in Barrie, where he attended Georgian College. He’s been an early adopter from way back, working in digital since age thirteen and then, early in his career, landing his first major client while pursuing opportunities in Toronto – McDonald’s Canada!

Murray returned to Barrie and joined forces with Furlano to launch Tyger Shark – and they haven’t looked back.
