Karl Hindle
CEO

Karl Hindle founded Wellspring Digital in January 2017 and has extensive startup experience as well as advising C-suite and owner/founders on marketing and digital issues.

Karl served as a paratrooper in the British Army before graduating from the University of Aston, and subsequently trained as an accountant with Arthur Andersen in London, UK. Karl emigrated to the United States in 2009 after holding several senior positions with several European companies. His vision is to develop a true, full-service digital offering for the SMB market with every digital marketing need. Under one roof, it is centrally managed and delivered by one team with consistent, high-quality standards. Karl is a tried and tested business leader and in addition to his strong SEO skills, he also brings a wealth of digital team building experience working with organizations such as Adidas, Barclays Bank, ChildFund International and others. In addition to Wellspring Digital, he is involved as an equity partner in several business ventures in the digital space, and also acts as an advisor for a SaaS vendor in the Workflow Automation niche. When he’s not working, he can be found spending time with his family and their seven rescue dogs, playing guitar with several other frustrated, middle-aged rock stars, or navigating domestic life with two redheads in the house (his wife and stepdaughter, the Ginger Ninja).
