AJ Rounds | Chief Marketing Officer
A.J. is a seasoned sales, marketing, PR, and HR professional — strange combo, but it works well. While attending college, A.J. sold and managed door-to-door sales teams across the country (he has flown into almost every airport in the nation). He graduated from Utah State University with a bachelor’s degree in marketing and an MBA/HR degree. Growing up, A.J. learned about commercial real estate, business acquisitions, insurance, and property management in his family business. Since then, he has been involved in a variety of industries, from infomercials to launching sales teams for Winder Farms in Las Vegas. Besides hanging out with his 4 kids, wife, and new critters, driving a limousine tops the list of his favorite things to do.
Bruce Hassler | Chief Technology Officer
Bruce loves to create outstanding products and teams. As a BYU graduate in Computer Science, he started out as a programmer but quickly learned he had a talent for translating highly technical concepts in a business context and for identifying and mentoring high-performing managers. He is best known for leading efforts to build a highly successful school district app platform. Although Bruce has a love for technology, he has a wide range of experience ranging from directing marketing efforts and conducting sales presentations to leading business development. In addition to spending time with his wife and 5 kids, Bruce loves to play the piano or his guitar and is up to any DIY home improvement challenge.
