Victor Vo wants to live in a world where everyone is driven to help one another succeed, text messages sent before thinking can be taken back, and pet allergies do not exist.
As an aspiring entrepreneur, he collaborated in various startups, participated in 3 Day Startup, and even co founded a small design and digital marketing group. Through these experiences, Victor cultivated the skills and passion necessary to join DCI as a marketing operations specialist, where he develops curriculum, manages the apprentice pipeline, and performs whatever tasks needed to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible.
When he’s not working as a marketing operations specialist, you can find him playing or writing music, pretending to know what he’s doing in the kitchen, playing ultimate frisbee, or questioning why he likes coffee so much.
At the end of the day, Victor just wants to support others, as best he can, in achieving their goals and aspirations.
What apprenticeship experience did you benefit from most?
Before I discovered my fascination for digital marketing, I was an extreme guitar effects pedal junkie. I loved to experiment, modify, and fix any pedals that I could get my hands on.
One day, I walked into a local guitar shop to look around only to find myself befriending my new mentor. I ended up visiting the shop several times a week afterwards during the summer to learn tricks, tips, and techniques of the trade.
Looking back, I had a blast. In addition, I was so blessed to have had the opportunity to work with an extremely knowledgeable guy, who I still have the privilege of calling a friend to this day.
What emerging marketing technology excites you?
I’m really stoked to see what mobile marketing will look like five years, ten years, and twenty plus years from now. As smart phones remain the number one possession people have, according to Jeff Beer, senior writer for Co. Create, marketers will want to continue taking advantage of the amazing opportunity of reaching consumers through mobile. In the midst of the inevitable fierce creative competition, I believe breathtaking innovations will emerge and make current exciting technologies as obsolete as Myspace compared to Facebook.
