History of Kinetek

The idea of Kinetek was formed from a need to provide trusted, enthusiastic, and precise social media account management. Doyle hustled and volunteered to show proof of performance and gain feedback from trusted local companies. Yea, Doyle live tweeted events too!

2011

Kinetek launches locally as a trusted Spokane Digital Marketing Agency in Spokane's Liberty Building. Some of Kinetek's first clients were local small business and events.

2012

Kinetek pivots to begin expanding on creating content. Kinetek becomes a social media innovation leader with a variety of well known clients like Spokane Hoopfest, KXLY Broadcast Group, Toyota and more. The goal was to become a trusted content developer and event coverage partner. We really grew, we were now live tweeting the Bachelor.

2014

Another pivot! With an eye on the obvious need for quality content in the culinary, hospitality, and event scene it is time to level up. Kinetek adds video and website design to their core creative services. With the whole package available there is no stopping now.

2016

Kinetek opens their new office on the top floor of the Historic Bing Crosby Theater. With more space and an environment for collaboration, the team was able to grow. We did! We hired our first Graphic Designer, Motion Graphic Designer, Social Media Specialist and a Web Developer.

2018

2020 is behind us! Kinetek is growing and we continue to expand our team! We specialize in the food industry, events, and entertainment. We are your creative partner...(to be continued 😄)

Meet the Team

Doyle Wheeler

Founder/CEO

I love being behind a camera and creating awesome things for the Internet. My past includes a long career in Heavy Collision Repair for luxury brands like Lexus, Mercedes, and more. I love to create and repair. When social media became an opportunity, I utilized my creative talents, diagnostic skills, and entrepreneurial spirit to begin building on the Internet instead of repairing stuff!

I live each day to continue my legacy and showcase my dedication to high quality work for businesses on a budget.

Favorite activities: Family, Food, and Making Art

I have a diverse array of marketing, PR and social media experience, but content creation is my specialty. I love the opportunity for creativity and art that comes with digital marketing. I also have a passion for writing, and I really enjoy helping brands tell their stories. In my time as a digital media specialist, I’ve helped news publications, art galleries, video game companies, tanning salons and fireplace stores find their voice and make an impact online. When I’m not finding new strategies for social media, you can find me exploring Spokane or shopping for unique items at thrift stores!
