We’ve got big plans for the next decade, and in addition to guiding our sales and product operations toward expansion in areas such as SMS and broader scale email data services, my primary goal as CRO will be to facilitate company growth through all means available.

We’ve got a huge advantage in our existing foundation of state-of-the-art technology, paired with world-class customer service and support. As a service provider and knowing you’ve got great people in the right roles, working together toward the same objectives, AND superior tech. That really tees up a clear path to success across the board for our team and clients.” This appointment comes at the start of a momentous year for OPTIZMO, as the company is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2019.
