“What I took away from our local DMA event was that no matter how different in size and scope one company is from the other, we all are aiming for the same thing: how to make our product better. Being able to brainstorm and relate to fellow marketers on an actual level is very important to what I do because it can be directly applied back to my job and help me with my day-to-day functions.”
Jeff Eldersveld, Director of CRM and Analytics, Columbus Blue Jackets
