DIRECTOR OF AUDIENCE (Gen Z)
Taking hashtags to an art form.
Conor is Mr. Generation Z…with a bang!
Currently a student at the University of Georgia and an accomplished member of the varsity men’s rowing team, it’s amazing that he can find the time for ZecurityAscent. But he does. And in a big way.
During all those holidays and major breaks, Conor works as a full-time intern, contributing all he can to the mission (mostly the deep thinker on which hashtags to use on each platform) and the customers. While in school, he joins the various team calls to make sure that he is staying on top of everything, including contributing a fair amount of creative content as needed. So whenever anyone has a question about just how some content might be beneficial to the youngest generation, this is who comes into focus.
His primary role though is getting all those customer contacts into the CRM software and generally helping grow the audience. But such is the life of a #noob.
We expect big things from Conor as he graduates and takes on a full time leadership position.
- Audience Happiness 80%
- Hashtags 95%
- New & Emerging Social Media Platforms 80%
