What can a person who stands behind a parts counter all day possibly know about coaxing a cage of steel to reach up to the sky? More than most. Maybe even more than you. Build her knowledge and she’ll return the favor. Smashing your quotas. Out-thinking your competition. Building your bottom line.
We believe that personal desire should be all that people need to advance themselves. When that’s happening, companies grow and communities thrive. That’s why, since 2002, we’ve helped organizations, their employees and their partners build knowledge with custom online training solutions.
As with all life, it’s about relationships—helping our customers connect with other organizations to share knowledge, news and best practices. These connections not only assist in the building of an eLearning program, but they also create powerful business opportunities within the channel ecosystem.
President & General Manager
Coming up on 20 years’ experience in educational technology, Douglas has held key roles in creating educational media and developing new business programs and relationships. A graduate of Boston College, Douglas and his family have since moved to the West Coast and love it here. After hours, he loves playing chess with his son, Go Fish with his daughters and planning the next leg of his Pan-America motorcycle ride: Baja to Argentina.
Vice President of Sales and Customer Success
Gary considers it a privilege to lead and serve a dedicated team of sales, service and customer success professionals. A graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology with his degree in Applied Mathematics, he enjoys hiking with his wife and putting together events for their five children. On his bucket list, he includes traveling to the Island of Sicily, the home of his ancestors, and a Lopez Island bike tour.
Director of Creative Development
Chris oversees custom course development and professional services for BlueVolt. She was most recently in charge of the internal creative team at Knowledge Learning Corp., and has also worked for Via Training, Waggener Edstrom, and Medicalogic on clients such as HP and Microsoft. She attended IVY School of Professional Art, where she majored in Advertising Art and Design, and has taken additional courses at Carnegie Mellon University. A self-described news junkie, she would love, one day, to leave her media devices behind and camp under the Northern Lights.
Director of Marketing
What gets Keith up in the morning? Authenticity. Using customer insights, behavioral data and pure gut feelings to create meaningful experiences that attract people to the BlueVolt brand. And when he gets home in the evening? Spending time with his family. Or ducking away to sculpt sound utilizing tube amps, germanium flavored fuzz and strange-sounding stompboxes. A lover of fine whiskey, he’d like one day to be able to make his own.
Pam is responsible for all aspects of the financial and accounting reporting, processes, and procedures. A graduate of UC Berkeley with an MBA in finance from University of Portland, she enjoys skiing, hiking and camping with her family. She hopes to one day make the trek to the Mt. Everest base camp.
