Boundless Network Announces New CIO
Boundless Network Technology Transforming Promotional Products Industry
AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 13, 2007 — Austin-based Boundless Network, one of the fastest-growing promotional product distribution companies in the United States, has promoted Jeremy Kraybill to chief information officer.
Recently dubbed a “Techno Titan” in the November 2007 edition of Counselor Magazine, published by the Advertising Specialty Institute, Boundless Network continues to embrace the opportunity to leverage technology in the promotional products industry. As CIO, Kraybill is leading efforts to connect buyers and streamline promotional product purchasing within large organizations.
“I believe Boundless has the best technology platform in the industry. With Jeremy’s leadership, vision and experience, we will continue our leadership position in innovating technology to drive greater efficiencies for customers, sales professionals and our supplier partners,” said Jason Black, CEO, Boundless Network.
In 2008 Kraybill’s focus will include developing the next phase of the company’s patent-pending BrandForge technology platform. The BrandForge platform streamlines the purchase cycle of promotional products by connecting corporate buyers to aggregate orders and reduce overall costs. Using the BrandForge platform, industry sales professionals are able to dramatically increase their sales and efficiency of service to corporate clients.
“Independent promotional product sales professionals struggle to scale their business due to a lack of process and procurement infrastructure. The promotional products industry is transforming through technology. This is a great opportunity to drive that evolution,” noted Kraybill.
Since the launch of the BrandForge platform in 2006, the company’s sales force has doubled.
“Our significant growth is directly attributed to Boundless being a forward-thinking distributorship with a passion for leveraging technology. Jeremy and his team are providing our sales professionals competitive advantages that other distributors cannot match,” continued Black.
Joining the company in 2006, Kraybill first served as the vice president of development. His prior experience includes managing eBay’s Austin-based software group and developing software applications for WhisperWire, a telecommunications software company acquired by Convergys. With more than ten years in the technology industry, Kraybill has significant expertise in developing innovative web-based software solutions that support an organization’s sales process and objectives.
With regional offices in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio and Chicago, California, Minnesota, Massachusetts and Colorado, and a sales presence in Oklahoma City and Oregon, Boundless Network has recruited the majority of its 62 leading sales professionals in the last year. The company continues to attract sales professionals in key regions throughout the U.S. In addition to sales professionals, Boundless Network currently has 55 employees and expects to add another 30 Austin-based employees over the next 24 months.
