Behind the Scenes at Buzztime with Stacy Baxter
At Buzztime, we have a wide array of interesting, fun and passionate employees that all play a significant role in perfecting our product and keeping our customers happy! We’d love to give you the chance to take a peak behind the scenes at who exactly these amazing people are.
Stacy Baxter is Buzztime’s Division Vice President of Sales, which means that she is kind of a big deal. Not only has she been with Buzztime for over fifteen years now, but she is also a former bar owner herself. This unique perspective has been a huge asset to both Stacy in her career as well as Buzztime because she has provided us with a better understanding of how our customers think. It is this experience that helped Stacy sympathize with and effectively support the customers that she worked with as an Account Executive and move up within the company. As the Division VP of Sales, she oversees the field marketing and account management teams who all work directly with the customers; which means there is never a dull moment as there are always several things popping up for Stacy to help with. But luckily, coming up with solutions to problems and working with customers are her favorite parts about her job at Buzztime.
