Our Franchise Marketing Agency

Rich Stark
Chief Executice Officer
Rich founded the company 15 years ago with the idea of growing a team that would show businesses how to navigate the exciting, ever-changing landscape of internet marketing. He understands that if companies aren’t at the forefront of new marketing strategies, they’ll get left behind – that’s where Stark Logic comes in – with ideas and solutions to digital marketing needs.

Rich graduated with a Bachelor degree in Science for Civil Engineering, but quickly saw the internet as a more interesting industry and saw the potential in how it could help businesses.  He learned how to do web site design and worked with a number of companies building web sites and helping them with their online marketing strategies.  From Warner Bros to Sage Software and ETM Ticketing (a Ticketmaster competitor), Rich has worked with a number of high profile corporate clients in many different industries. As owner of OC Web Logic and Stark Logic, Rich has worked with over 500 small to medium sized companies and continues to teach business owners  how online marketing works and how it can work for them.  Rich has brought this experience to the franchise marketing agency where he can help both the corporate office with their strategies and the local franchisees with their marketing.

Originally from the Bay Area, Rich lived in Orange County for 17 years before moving to Oceanside, CA in 2009. He has his B.S. in Civil Engineering from U.C. Irvine, where he also minored in Project Management.

David Valentin

Director of Customer Relations

David came on board with Stark Logic in July of 2011 after living in Maryland for 26 years, although he’s a California native. When he’s not helping people grow their businesses as an account manager, he’s reading, writing (he’s a published author), and watching good movies. He cites Lord of the Rings as one of the greatest films of all time. He’s an entrepreneur at heart, having owned several businesses. After being gone from the west coast for several years, David is enjoying being back in the “slice of heaven” that is Oceanside, California.

Maria Cortez

Director of Operations

Maria joined Stark Logic in November of 2010 as our proverbial wearer-of-multiple-hats, jack-of-all-trades around the office, and we couldn’t be happier. Hailing from Juchitlan, Jalisco, Mexico, Maria moved to the U.S. in 1978. She attended Mira Costa College, and enjoys spending her free time and efforts helping out the Hispanic community in many areas.
