SASKATOON, SK–(Jun 1, 2015) – Vendasta Technologies is excited to announce that Jed Williams has joined its team as the new Vice President of Business Development and Strategy. Jed is a veteran of the media space and recently held positions as the Director of Business Development at Main Street Hub and as a Senior Analyst and Vice President of Strategic Consulting at BIA/Kelsey.
Jed will lead efforts at Vendasta to design strategies and programs for the large media companies Vendasta works with to mutually grow revenues and ultimately delight their customers.
“Jed is one of the best,” says Brendan King, CEO at Vendasta. “While we are certain that Vendasta is a big winner, our customers are bigger winners. Jed is one of the smartest people in this space. He is a driven thought leader. We could not be more excited to have him onboard.”
Vendasta has been rapidly growing operations over the past couple of years. Now with a team of over 135, and offices in Saskatoon, Vancouver and Toronto, Jed will work out of Austin, Texas.
“Vendasta provides a powerful platform that helps its partners and their local business customers prosper,” says Williams. “I’ve known the team for years, and during that time I have watched the company grow into an essential digital marketing solution. I’m thrilled to join the leadership team at Vendasta to further accelerate that growth and help more businesses succeed.”
A lattè aficionado and avid runner, the Austin native will be toughened up with the mandatory winter onsite meetings up in Canada. So much so, he should be able to make winter visits to Vendasta customers in Chicago and New York with just a t-shirt on in little to no time.
“All kidding aside, Vendasta has built its business by creating strong relationships with our customers,” adds Jeff Tomlin, CMO at Vendasta. “Apart from knowing this space inside out and upside down, Jed is just an awesome guy that our customers are going to be thrilled to work with.”
Jed’s been added to a great team. See the rest of our company leadership.
