5 Q’s to get to know Quester’s new VP of Client Services

What was the most exciting purchase you made in 2015?

A stay at the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park.

Biggest disruption of your day?

The biggest and most welcome distraction of my day is when the kids get home.

Person that has had the biggest impact on your life?

My wife Laura.

Most memorable brand? What brand has your attention right now?

Google is the most memorable brand, for me, by a mile.

I like what Blue Apron is doing.

What future innovation has made the biggest disruption to consumer’s path to purchase?

All avenues of easily accessible information on products, services, availability, and pricing at a customers’ fingertips is the biggest innovation in the past decade. Once technology and scale arrive, 3D-printing has the potential to be terrifically disruptive in the future. Think about how we used to buy software, mainly via discs purchased at a store…now we routinely download it through the ether without thinking about it. When physical products can be done the same, the word game-changer won’t do it justice. I’m excited about the potential impact that 3D printing can have on developing countries with weak traditional distribution infrastructure. Those countries may be able to take a quantum leap in terms of development via bypassing some traditional infrastructure requirements.
