Nick Nydegger

Founder, CEO

Nick is TargetMarket’s founder and CEO. Raised in Tampa, FL, Nick graduated from the University of Florida and afterwards moved west to work in marketing for Fox in Los Angeles (Fun Fact: Nagatomi Plaza from Die Hard).

In 2007, longing to return to the East Coast, Nick relocated to Charleston to run a print and trade show marketing company. The economic turmoil of 2008-2009 forced a shift in marketing spending to digital, and in 2010 TargetMarket was born.

Over the past 10 years, Nick has worked to grow TargetMarket to be a premier digital marketing agency in the Southeast. He enjoys running the agency, but equally enjoys community involvement, serving on Rotary International and as Board Chairman for the Summerville Family YMCA.

When not on the clock, Nick enjoys spending time on the golf course, listening to live music, or at home with his wife and two children.

App You Can’t Live Without: LivePhish. It’s the closest I can get to live music during a pandemic.

Favorite Binge Watch: With two young children and a business, binge watching is whatever the kids agree on. These days it’s The Greatest Showman on repeat.

Favorite Sports Team: Tampa Bay Rays! Nothing like a small market, no budget team sticking it to the Yankees year after year.

Jenn Steere

VP of Operations

Jenn has spent 10 years in the digital marketing space, with a background in affiliate marketing, online merchandising, email marketing, content development, management, and operations.

She has worked with various brands and companies, ranging from smartphones to outdoor patio furniture. Since coming to the agency side as the Director of Operations, she’s grown an affinity for defining the TargetMarket culture and employee growth. She also enjoys client onboarding and helping to give clients an idea of what they can expect while working with the TargetMarket team.

She is a Marketing Communications graduate of Mary Baldwin University (go fighting squirrels!) in Staunton, Virginia. After an 8 year stint of dealing with DC traffic, she happily moved to Charleston when her husband took a promotion in the Holy City.

She loves the beach and has been told on several occasions that she has saltwater running through her veins. She is also a little obsessed with animals; puppies and kittens will stop her dead in her tracks, and she is in love with her adorably vocal tuxedo cat, Chloe, and her Boston terrier puppy, Ellie.

Favorite App: Chick-fil-A – because who doesn’t love getting points for free food!

Favorite Binge Watch: Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica…The Office! And you can bet I signed the petition to keep this on Netflix. 😉

Random Fact about Yourself: I was raised listening to ghost stories from my Grandparents. They would tell me about ghosts they had seen in and around their home. It was terrifying and exciting, all the same. As a result, I love a good ghost story and love to check out local haunts and ghost tours around Charleston.

Apple or Android: Definitely Apple! I love how seamless it is to move between my Apple devices and face-timing with my nieces and nephews.

Director of Client Success

Jenny started her career as a Media Planner and Buyer at Fahlgren (now Fahlgren Mortine) in Atlanta working on local market McDonald’s co-ops and Kroger Grocery Stores. She quickly learned she enjoyed partnering with clients on their strategy and planning more than the buying aspect of the work. She moved from Fahlgren to Ogilvy & Mather as a Media Planner to work on the Krystal fast food account and later Food Lion before relocating to Dallas, TX.

Jenny spent 3 years in Dallas working at Carat USA as an Account Supervisor on RadioShack. Primarily responsible for planning the RadioShack National Television Budget. She then returned to Atlanta to work at MindShare USA on Orkin Pest Control.

After having her first daughter, Jenny and her husband, Justin, relocated to Charleston where she formed a partnership with two friends also in marketing to offer website development, blogging, and social media management to small businesses. It was a great way to stay in advertising and marketing and be able to spend more time with her young daughters.

In 2017, Jenny joined the TargetMarket team and is our Director of Client Success. She thrives on building client relationships and supporting the account team. Learning about a client’s goals and then finding the best combination of services to help them grow their business and brand is one her favorite parts of what she does.

Favorite Binge Watch: Anything I can get my husband or teenage daughters to watch with me. Currently that is The Queen’s Gambit and Umbrella Academy!

Apple or Android: Android

Project Management

Cary Saineghi

Director of Project Management

Cary has 10 years of collective marketing experience in an agency setting dating back to a college internship her senior year. For 8 of these years, she specialized in digital marketing for the healthcare industry helping develop and bring clients’ visions to life. She took two years off to teach elementary school, only to realize she missed her prior creative and strategy-driven role.

She grew up playing competitive basketball (and every other sport) which taught her to collaborate with a team, strategize, and that never giving up is the key to success and results. She credits her kids with having taught her the importance of patience and managing expectations. All traits she uses as our Director of Project Management.

When she’s not working, Cary flexes her creative muscle as a photographer. But mostly, you can find her playing chauffeur to her four kids or working on house projects alongside her husband.

She attributes her hardworking and driven nature to this fact. She relocated to Charleston after college to begin her career in the sunshine.

In her free time, she enjoys snuggling up with her black cat Nya while reading a good book, going on adventures (even if they’re local), and pretending she knows anything about fashion by faithfully watching Project Runway.

Alice in Wonderland is Amanda’s favorite movie, and she has a vintage collection of the Lewis Carroll novel.
