Meet Kyle Rees! Account Representative located at our Texas office.
Tell us about yourself!
I moved to Rowlett, Texas from San Diego, California when I was 7. I met my best friend and now coworker after my move. Him and I toured regionally and grew together in a power pop rock band called Attention Deficit and Hot New Couple. We were managed by Grammy nominated Bowling for Soup lead singer, Jaret Reddick. Through the band, I met my future wife and mother of my beautiful daughter, Kyndall, who urged me strongly to go back to College. I attended the University of North Texas and I majored in sociology and minored in being awesome.
How did you hear about Edmentum?
I started with Archipelago on February 16th, 2012. At the time, I was working at an insurance company and grew weary of breaking bad news to nice people. My best friend who I grew up with worked in customer service and raved about how great his job was at Archipelago (now known as Edmentum). It wasn’t long before he and I were reunited and our reign of awesomeness continued. After 6 months of working in the customer service department, I worked my way up to inside sales as an Account Representative.
What are you and your department responsible for?
Account Representatives are responsible for renewing, maintaining, and growing our current account (customer) base. We help facilitate our customer’s through their subscription renewal and sell solutions to their academic needs.
What interests you about the field that you are in?
I enjoy the challenges and competition that comes with the territory of sales. I am also a big ‘people person’ and the sales department allows me to enjoy building relationships with my great customers.
What is the most enjoyable aspect of your job?
I would have to say helping my customer’s continue our fantastic programs at their school and hearing about the positive impact our programs have had on students is the best part of my job!
What activities are you interested in outside of work?
I really enjoy writing and creating music. It is therapeutic and a great creative outlet.
What are your professional goals?
My professional goals are to meet and exceed my sales goals. Also, being the best Account Representative I can be. Continuing to grow as a person, employee, father, and husband are very important to me as well.
