President and Co-Founder
Now a seasoned businessman, Layton Judd was bitten by the entrepreneurship bug at a young age. He spent the beginning of his career working in various areas of the hospitality industry, including owning and operating his own chain of juice bars before there was a Jamba Juice on every corner. But he truly hit his stride after moving into B2B sales and the high-tech industry, where he went on to co-found izmocars. In the process of nurturing the growth of izmocars, Layton spent nearly a decade forming meaningful relationships with some of the most progressive dealership owners, general managers, and Internet directors in the industry. During that time, he developed a passion for the automotive industry and a deep understanding of the unique business challenges faced by automobile dealers. He also identified a need to bridge the gap between products-oriented third party vendors and services-oriented advertising and marketing agencies--and that’s where 3 Birds Marketing came in. He now runs 3 Birds with the same straight-shooting, tell-it-like-it-is approach, grounded in an uncompromising commitment to customer service, that first earned him the respect, and in some instances the disdain, of his peers in the automotive world and here at 3 Birds.
