Our team of fanatically analytical and creative retail marketers brings a wealth of knowledge from unique backgrounds. Last year, Paul Wilson joined us as NetElixir’s Chief Growth Officer and has since applied his expertise as a digital marketing leader to help us grow. For this edition of NetElixir’s Employee Spotlight series, we’re celebrating Paul’s one-year mark with a deeper dive into his role and personal interests.
Fun fact – Paul set his high school’s pole vault record in Princeton University’s Jadwin Gym….and the record still stands 35 years later!
“I started in the broadcast industry in advertising sales,” Paul said. “I loved selling sports sponsorships, Olympics, etc. and then moved to the Internet side and search engines. Then I got into the search marketing agency side with sales responsibilities.”
