Bluelock is excited to announce the addition of Joe Kuntz as Executive Vice President of Sales. The addition of Joe is part of a larger, aggressive growth strategy for Bluelock in 2014 aims to grow headcount at nearly 50% this year.
Kuntz joins Bluelock from ExactTarget, now a Salesforce.com company, where he served as Vice President of North American Sales. He had been with ExactTarget since 2008 in several positions, each of increasing responsibility.
“Joe brings experience in leading sales growth and scalability that aligns with Bluelock’s long term goals,” said Christopher Clapp, President and CEO of Bluelock. “I have long admired his thoughtful approach to customer interactions and team development while balancing the need for sales production. I have been searching for the right leader to add to our team and I’m confident we’ve found that in Joe.”
Kuntz will bring leadership and a cultural philosophy that integrates well with Bluelock’s organizational goals and keen vision of its next phase of high growth. As the executive leader of the sales and marketing functions, Kuntz will be responsible for developing and driving the revenue generation strategy forward.
“This is an exciting opportunity to join a company whose customer and employee-focused cultural philosophy aligns so well with my beliefs," Kuntz said. "I’m thrilled to have the chance to help lead Bluelock’s growth as we continue to build a powerhouse business that is highly valued by its customers and team members.”
