Had a great time with our CIE alumni panel last Friday with Scott Sonneborn, Kevin Lynch, and Charlie Montgomery!
We are really excited to have Chris Franco on campus (Thursday 4/4, 4pm-5pm in Roberts N15) for his talk: “Wiz Khalifa to Goldman Sachs” Chris is the CEO of Woodbridge Growth in New York City. Woodridge Growth is a leading growth marketing firm with a history of achieving unprecedented results. Their client roster includes two of the fastest companies to ever achieve $1 billion dollar valuations, Jet.com and FanDuel. Chris started his career as a rap blogger then worked for Wiz Khalfia as a growth marketer. Chris received his BA in Communications from Denison University, and his talk will be focused on his philosophical approach in growth marketing given his liberal arts background. “Some of the rappers I crossed paths with: Nas, Big Sean, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Raekwon, Joe Budden, Slaughterhouse, Warren G, and a whole bunch more. One of Woodridge Growth's clients was Migos, specifically their clothing brand YRN.”
