Justin Rankin firmly believes the only thing holding anyone back is their own willingness to step ahead. As the Co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer of Hard Media Group, Hard Service Solutions and HRDApparel, Justin works to connect creative thinking with actions that get results. As the co-founder of the nonprofit Trek for Change, he is also working to bring his ambition for action to inspire change throughout the world.
Justin has a long history and proven track record of deploying creative assertiveness to move companies forward and out of their own way, working as a brand and marketing manager across various industries before stepping out on his own with partner Derrick Humphrey.
A graduate of Wright State University, Justin is inspired by innovation but rooted in humility. He has dedicated himself to blazing his own path forward, but always has a hand out to lend momentum and motivation to those around him, who thrive on his energy and ambition.
Justin’s success has been rooted in the strength of having a solid foundation of kindness, care and a holistic approach to life. He believes success is dependent not on segmenting different aspects of himself away from each other, but dedicating his goals to growing as a person and enjoying a full human experience.
