Hey, I’m Robb Kofoed, but many of my friends know me simply as ‘Danger’… I am the Business Development Manager and have been here at Progrexion Marketing for just over 2 months. I’m excited to be part of such a great company that is offering a unique value to the market and growing at such a rapid rate.
I grew up with five brothers, and I’m the youngest by five years. I’ve spent my entire life surrounded by marketing. My father spent his entire 40+ year career working in sales and marketing for a major computer company. All of my brothers followed his example and went into careers in sales and marketing. From an early age I listened to their discussions, debates, and theories on the newest trends and hottest media. As a result of this exposure, I wasn’t the little boy who dreamed about being an astronaut, a veterinarian, or the next Michael Jordan. I always knew I wanted a career in marketing.
I’ve gotten to the point where I nearly dread being asked the question, “So, what you do for work?” When I give the only answer I can give, “online marketing”, I more often than not get blank stares. It’s an almost guaranteed conversation killer; “Oh, that’s nice…”
Let’s be clear about one thing before I go any further – I love my job, and my career. I have no regrets about where I am currently, and enjoy it thoroughly. The only problem is when I’m making introductions – no one really knows what I do so they don’t really know what to ask next. So, allow me to introduce myself, and also explain what I do.
