Time for a new adventure – VP of Digital Strategy

Starting today, I will be the new VP of Digital Strategy at Gecko. Having been on my own for the past 9 years as a higher education digital engagement consultant, the time felt right for a radical leap.

I was so impressed with both the technology and people at Gecko when I spoke at the annual client forum in March that I pitched the idea for this job earlier this summer. I asked my new boss if I could come work with him and his awesome team…and he said yes!

What does a VP of Digital Strategy do?

Well, it’s my first day, so there’s a lot of ground to cover, but here’s a quick snapshot of just a few of the things that I’ll be working on:

  • Representing Gecko at various higher education events as a featured speaker
  • Writing blog posts about all things related to HE + digital transformation
  • Working with institutional leaders on how chatbots can benefit their school within a variety of functional areas
  • Providing thought leadership on social media, webinars, and workshops for all things having to do with GeckoEngage’s technologies
  • My role will be a remote one, based in the U.S., but with ample opportunities for global engagement

Let’s chat

My first event for Gecko will be the NACAC National Conference this week in Louisville.
Please stop by booth 469 and say hello!
