What was your first job in the industry?

This is it!

The marketing opportunities available in an industry built on person-to-person relationships.

Helping industry veterans understand the impact of technology on this longstanding industry.

My peers here at MTS.

How do you encourage others to enter the industry?

Many people have spent their entire careers in this industry; their knowledge and experience are so valuable. However, I believe there is a real opportunity to bring new ideas, such as digital strategies and tactics used in other industries that can move this industry forward. I would encourage those outside the industry to share what has worked for them in the past, and use the opportunity to teach industry veterans something new.
