Chief Marketing Officer


You are the type of person that leads people into battle. You are unfamiliar with the word impossible. You lose gracefully and winning is second nature. When you see a problem, you don’t run away from it. You embrace the challenge. You are entrepreneurial and refuse to quit. Fairly technical and a business savvy problem solver. Someone who doesn’t just like identifying problems, but likes fixing them. The idea of identifying a problem and handing it off to someone else to fix makes your head hurt. You own it and see things to a logical end. You are someone everyone around you loves to work with.
