SUCCESS STORY

Aidan McKevitt, GBSB Global BBA Alumni and Founder of Breakwater Marketing, identified a niche in the Spanish market that he knew he could fill. Breakwater Marketing, his first company, is an international high-ticket marketing agency that focuses on Facebook ads, social media, SEO, and full-scale marketing re-designs.

His second company, Public Worx, what he describes as a low-ticket marketing agency works locally in Barcelona to offer month-to-month ala carte marketing services to the hospitality and tourism sectors.

When it came to Public Worx, Aiden says the bachelor degree earned at GBSB Global was instrumental in providing the business structure. It gave Aiden the confidence to speak to his lawyers, accountants and team in a language they understood and could all capitalize on.
