Cynthia Giles – Owner/Partner

Cynthia Giles was born and raised in South Carolina, with a familiarity with the people and businesses that make the Midlands thrive. Cynthia left the area to develop her career, first as a nurse in California and then as a salesperson with State Farm Insurance in San Francisco. During her three years with State Farm, she learned practical skills such as marketing, direct sales, and networking. She continued her career with a management company supporting non-profits on a national scale. After moving back to South Carolina with her husband, Geoff, she worked with him on several business ventures before going back to school to study web development as a full stack developer (including HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, Python, SQL, and .NET). It was here that she brought her technical skills in web development together with her marketing background to start Cut Throat Marketing. Her experience in management, sales and web development have led to her leading the team at Cut Throat Marketing with a commitment to honesty and integrity. Throughout the years, she’s learned the value of attacking problems head-on. Her blunt assessment of clients’ needs can seem harsh, but she sees that as her job. During a consultation with Cynthia, clients get brutally honest feedback on their marketing and advertising needs.  

Cynthia also serves the local Columbia, SC community. She is

  • Public Image Chair for The Columbia Rotary Club
  • Diplomat for the Greater Irmo Chamber of Commerce
  • Member of the Board of Directors for the Greater Irmo Chamber
  • Member of the Communication Committee for the Chestnut Hill Homeowners Association
