George Papadeas is the COO of The HOTH, aka Hittem Over The Head, an SEO and content creation platform devoted to bludgeoning its clients with awesomeness. When The HOTH was founded in 2010, the SEO space was filled with sketchy service providers who offered poor support and results, leading to poor experiences. With an eye toward changing the status quo, The HOTH set out to prioritize support and created a system that allowed it to work with more than 200,000 businesses and quickly found itself the recipient of a number of accolades and awards, including 3 consecutive years spent on the INC 5000 list.
When George joined the HOTH team and began overseeing their operations, his contributions allowed the company to grow from $250K to $2.2 million in revenue per month. Currently, he is focusing on The HOTH’s latest acquisition, FreeeUp, the leading solution for the hiring and management of pre-vetted online freelancers
