Current employment: Sales Representative for improveit! 360. improveit! 360 is an online business management tool made from the Salesforce platform specifically for the home improvement industry. I made the initial contact with potential customers to qualify their companies and create product interest resulting in scheduling an appointment for the potential customer to see the application and make a decision to buy. While there, I developed new e-mail marketing templates that resulted in an increased response from our target audience, while regularly exceeding weekly quota for appointments set.
Also, I worked for the Columbus Fire minor league football organization as the Public Relations Manager. While there, I created and grew the team’s Facebook and Twitter pages, scheduled player and coaching interviews and sent out news releases and alerts to local sports media. I also secured print, radio, television and online media coverage, updated the team’s Web site and trained the Public Relations Intern.
Why he chose Tippie: I chose Tippie for my MBA because the chance to work on Henry Fund, which has been consistently named as a top student-ran fund in the country, is a young investor’s dream!
Something interesting about Seth: In addition to being the PR Manager, I also coach the defense for the Columbus Fire. Coaching has been one of the biggest thrills of my life. Winning a championship feels great! In a game, nothing beats a defensive touchdown from a play that I called.
