VP of Sales
Stop me if you've heard this one: "A Professor and a Digital Marketing Entrepreneur walk into a bar…" You haven't? Read on.
André Resner is the Vice President of Sales at Art's Cube. He took that role on after a long conversation with Owner & CEO Brannon Williams.
André comes to the company from the realm of education. He has served as a professor on the faculty of five different colleges, universities, or graduate schools. He has been recognized as a "teacher's teacher," earning numerous awards and distinctions for pedagogical excellence. He has authored four books and dozens of other publications in books, journals, encyclopedias, and online resources. He has four earned degrees from Pepperdine and Princeton, including the Ph.D. at the latter.
So what's a professor doing talking to a digital marketing expert and entrepreneur? Well, it's kinda complicated. Because André has always had two keen interests that come together in his role at Art's Cube.
First, he has always enjoyed bringing different people together so that they could mutually benefit from the other. Second, he has been a pioneer in leveraging technology to enhance teaching and learning. In his first faculty appointment at a university in Texas, André raised the funding, hired eight student technology consultants, and launched the school's first computer assisted teaching lab. In his latest appointment in North Carolina he served as the Director of Digital Learning as the school transitioned to a hybrid education delivery platform using the LMS, Canvas.
In his role as VP of Sales at Art's Cube, the professor brings people together to mutually benefit from emerging digital technologies. André's role is to help connect Business Owners (who need to maximize their online attraction of potential, qualified customers to their goods and services) to the Digital Marketing Wizards of Art's Cube (who use the latest inbound marketing strategies and digital media resources to maximize their client's web exposure/draw and marketing investment).
So, back to the bar, over a beer: "Hey, Brannon, while we were on the golf course the other day, I overheard you talking to a guy about the kind of person you're looking for to fill a key role at your company." "Yeah, so?" "Well, I think I could be who you need." "Tell me more…"
When André's not doing the above stuff, he's probably trying to simplify the golf swing, working out at the Y, or caffeinating so he can write faster. He's also doing what he can in his community to bring people together, especially in race relations.
