Vice President of Sales and Business Development

Txtstation
The world’s most successful broadcasters, sport organizations, stadiums, advertisers, agencies, and publishers are using our mobile interactive marketing solutions to activate new and current sponsors to build their business. With the invention of Tivo and DVR’s, commercials are being skipped over. In additions, stadium banner or signs are not being paid attention too. Advertisers need to find a new way of attracting people to their brand in a non invasive entertaining manner. Activation is very important for sponsorships. I believe Txtstation has key components to increase sales, increase brand awareness, and development a one to one relationship. We have relationships with many different broadcasters and professional teams to bring your brand to with our solution.
