ANN OLESON
CEO
 

That means: I am involved with everything from vision and structure of our organization to new product development.

My coworkers say: I'm filled with boundless energy. 

I work at Converge because: I believe that we must be the change that we wish to see in the world. Higher Education Marketing has changed significantly and Converge is on the cutting edge of what is next.  

What's measurable about me: The natural loudness of my voice. I never have to wear a microphone when I present. Rumor has it that you need not be in the room to hear me.

What's memorable about me: The client work that I have had the opportunity to be a part of: from the redesign of the award winning University of Michigan's Admissions website, to the alumni engagement campaign with Rice University Jones School of Business, to development of a custom Google Analytics training/tools for DePaul University. I am proud of the results we have achieved and thankful for the privilege to work with some amazing people and colleges. 

My "Iowa Nice" shines through when: Working with clients. I love our clients and am passionate about Higher Education and its impact on the social good. I truly believe that we work in the best business in the world. 

When I'm not working, you can find me: Volunteering, serving as a shuttle service for my two children, perusing my favorite online shoe and business blog sites, wine tasting and kickboxing (but not at the same time!)
