Hailing from the Empire State, Greg is a Chief Operating Officer, Chief Technology Officer, and a gentleman. Prior to joining Verblio, he founded an ag-tech startup that uses simulation modeling and weather data to help farmers optimize their fertilizer usage and improve yields, while reducing environmental impact. When he’s not solving hard problems that intersect business and technology, you’ll find Greg in front of a hot BBQ, cold drink in hand, cooking up something big.

Do you like pineapple on pizza? Verblio’s head of business development does! When he’s not leading enterprise sales efforts or making divisive culinary choices, Brad enjoys live music, listening to music, and excelling at 90s music trivia. Before Verblio, Brad spent most of his career building and leading sales teams, most recently launching and growing a platform that makes it easy for Fortune 1000 companies to find video production freelancers.
Vice President, Marketing
Hometown: St. Louis, MO
Favorite Word: Yup
Paul runs marketing at Verblio and is a self-proclaimed digital marketing and SEO nerd. (Checking Google Analytics is his favorite form of procrastination). Although digitally savvy, Paul has a rare genetic defect that makes him incapable of understanding memes. His prerequisite I-live-in-Colorado activity is snowboarding, and his prerequisite millennial drink of choice is bulletproof coffee. Verblio colleagues do not approve of his favorite word.

For the past 8 years, Mandi has worked at fast-growing startups in NYC. Recently, she and her two orange tabby cats relocated to Denver, where they are enjoying their sweet views of the Rocky Mountains.

As senior director of operations, Zoe draws on her background in business and film production to help Verblio customers tell their stories. Outside of the office, Zoe does all the (Boulder) things—hiking, cycling, running. Only her complete disinterest in snow sports differentiates her from your average Boulderite. Yet somehow, we’ve found it in our hearts to forgive her.

Laura blends over 20 years of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and agency experience with a love for marketing and passion for data to help companies unlock the power of great content to grow brands. When she’s not in the throes of pricing and packaging or go-to-market strategy, she is probably on a bicycle. Laura maintains a constant ratio of two rescue dogs and two rescue cats at all times. She received a BS in Computer Information Systems and International Business from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, as well as a BA in Germanic Studies.

Hometown: Shepherdstown, WV
Favorite Word: Forthwith
Reid is Verblio’s senior director of engineering, and his work behind the scenes makes the platform purr. He has a computer science degree and experience building crowdsourcing platforms, but he comes from a newspaper family, so he’s still one of us. Reid’s favorite word means “immediately; at once.”
Senior Sales Manager

Favorite Word: Sublime
With over six years of SEO and content marketing experience, Caroline is thrilled to bring her expertise to Verblio’s diverse customer base. When she’s not in the office, you’ll find her painting outdoors, perusing her favorite volumes of poetry, and fawning over other people's dogs. Caroline is also Verblio’s elusive, enigmatic dolphin tamer, a skill she picked up from five years of living in Hawaii.

Alexa is a trilingual bibliophile with a severe case of nerdiness. Her Verblio journey began in 2016, when she first became a BlogMutt writer. From there, Alexa inexplicably found herself in the role of account manager, and finally coerced worked her way into the operations team. Now, she happily manages Verblio’s professional services from her home office in Florida. When she’s not spamming Slack with pictures of her husky, you’ll find Alexa playing video games, boating, re-reading Harry Potter, or singing showtunes.
Manager, Writer Community
Hometown: Indianapolis, IN
Favorite Word: Scruple
From vetting to reviews, forum chats to new features, Maddie guides, mentors, and advocates for Verblio’s writer community. She earned her MA in literature from CU and was a bartender for many years before making the leap to libraries and becoming a Verblion. Though Maddie brings shame upon the house of Colorado by not really skiing or snowboarding, she more than makes up for it with dope tattoos and a green thumb. Find Maddie in the garden or dancing her face off to a new DJ—always a well made cocktail in hand.

As a writer-turned-account manager, Casey loves building genuine rapport with clients through empathy, humor, and problem-solving. More than one client has referred to her as “part account manager, part therapist,” which about sums it up. She loves long-term travel, her senior rescue mutt Miles, getting lost in the woods, Jane Austen, writing fiction, and visiting animal sanctuaries. So far, she has hugged elephants, sloths, and spider monkeys but she really has her heart set on hugging a baby kangaroo.

Ginny is a mountain-lover and true crime podcast aficionado.

Before becoming a Verblion, Ginny worked at the United Way of Salt Lake as the resource development director. When she’s not managing Verblio’s team of helpful account managers, Ginny enjoys skiing, gardening, hiking, scuba diving, sailing, music, and comedy.

Our token Texan, Margaret brings with her a love of authentic Tex-Mex, tequila, and the occasional y’all. A true Verblion, she left behind her role as a marketing manager in San Antonio to pursue her MFA in Creative Writing here in Colorado.

Outside of work, Margaret can be found running, reading, and writing--all while alliterating wildly.
