Coming Off Hiatus

Thiswayforward-200x300The paperwork is done. It’s official. I’ll be rejoining the ranks of employment.

After a three-month “sabbatical,” I’m excited to announce that, on September 16th, I’ll be rejoining Inbox Group as Vice President of Marketing.

I’m thrilled for the opportunity to once again work with Chris Donald. I’m energized about having a direct impact on the growth and success of the company. And, I’m also very happy to be coming back to an email marketing industry that I have grown to love and in which I know I’ll thrive once again.

When I learned that the move to Virginia was likely to happen, Chris was my first phone call. I didn’t expect it to turn into conversations about a return to Inbox Group. But it did. And I’m all the better for it. (Hopefully, Chris thinks he is, too.)

How did your sabbatical go?

On the other hand, I don’t exactly know where the last ten years of my life have gone, and I’m not entirely convinced I’m actually 30.

All the Email Snob Interviews You Can Handle

As many of you know, several months ago, this blog crashed out. The backup I had set in place didn’t work properly, so I was forced to gather up as much of the blog as I could from the Wayback Machine. As a result, I have now *finally* put back all of the Email Snob […]

The Hour of Welcome: Why Speed to Inbox Matters

It’s too bad Murphy wasn’t alive to have foreseen his accuracy in predicting what happens when multiple technologies try to communicate with one another. Case in point: In my last week at WGU, the enormous email marketing lifecycle program I built ran into a little glitch in communication between the CRM and the email service […]

Midnight Meditations: Burning Bushes

Back in college, I went through an incredibly spiritual and religious renaissance of sorts. I started my freshman year as a non-practicing Jew, and left it as a devout (yet incredibly reasonable) Episcopalian. Part of that journey was writing a blog I called “Midnight Meditations.” While I am neither a practicing Jew or a practicing […]
