I’m proud to announce that Qbox has beefed up its marketing team with two new hires.

First, we welcome Adam Vanderbush as our new VP of Marketing.  Adam will be the 12th employee and work from Qbox HQ in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Prior to joining Qbox, Adam held a similar role with EquityNet, a Fayetteville-based crowdfunding platform.  He also has a professional history with many others on our team, having been employed at Acumen Brands, Fayetteville’s e-commerce powerhouse and Southern Lifestyle brand, where he managed inbound marketing initiatives.

Of course, our pursuit of Adam has been 3 years in the making.  Qbox CTO and Co-founder, Ben Hundley, participated with Adam in the 2012 Ark Challenge as co-founders of Mass Vector, a demand and pricing application.  Qbox (then known as Stacksearch) also participated in that cohort.

“Qbox exhibits a great opportunity for me to apply my varied knowledge in marketing to a market leader in search applications,” says Adam.  I look forward to joining the team.”

Kelly Strauch joins Qbox as a business analyst and our 13th employee, focusing on our Demand Gen platforms.  With certifications in Force.com development and Salesforce Administration, she has been a freelance consultant in Northwest Arkansas for the last two years.  Qbox had been one of her clients, and we convinced her to join us full time.

Kelly also brings experience from CodeScience, the large San Francisco-based Salesforce integration partner.
