Brent Zahradnik – Founder
Brent started AMZ Pathfinder in 2015. Brent’s friend was selling on Amazon and he knew Brent had experience with advertising, so Brent started to help.
This was the early days of Amazon advertising and they quickly saw unbelievable ROI… nearly 500x. They were spending less than 30 cents per click and making $89 on each sale.
That’s when Brent realized that he had the power to help so many other Amazon businesses grow revenue and optimize their advertising.
Since then, he’s witnessed firsthand each and every update that Amazon has implemented. Throughout the years he’s updated the tactics and processes Pathfinder uses to adapt to the changes Amazon makes.
Now, he works with a growing team of experts to provide clients in the North American and EU marketplaces the best advertising service possible.
