Haitham Fakhouri graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a bachelors degree in computer science in 2008 and soon figured out it would be easier to create a job than find one. So the aspiring entrepreneur created his own website design business,
The Livonia-based business started off just creating websites for small businesses. It has now grown to the point where it creates enough work for both Fakhouri and his first employee. Bold Media is looking to hire a sales and marketing person right now to help the company keep up with its expanding workload.
"Our scope of work has broadened," Fakhouri says. "We started out working for small-to-medium-size companies in southeast Michigan. Now we can handle mid-to-large-size companies across the U.S."
Bold Media has also expand its service offerings from just website development to include marketing, print and photography work. The idea is to enable the company to tackle bigger projects for bigger businesses.
"Now we're working on larger websites for bigger companies more frequently," Fakhouri says.
