Van Wagener Appointed to NACD-Colorado Board

November 10, 2015

Vandy backs up his 15 years of entrepreneurial startup experience with two decades at Proctor & Gamble where he started in U.S. Brand Management, ultimately leading to the divisional position of chief marketing officer. He helped start P&G operations in Southeast Asia in the late ‘80s, and served as vice president leading the Asia-Pacific skin care and cosmetics division.

In the mid-‘90s Vandy moved his family to Colorado and a more entrepreneurial career path, serving as CEO of email marketing firm InfoBeat, VP of sales for digital marketing startup Quris, and CEO of database marketing company dbDoctor. Today he is principal of Evergreen Innovation Partners whose mission is to strengthen the relationships between companies and inventors.

 “Vandy is a great addition to our board,” said NACD-Colorado President Debra Koenig. “He represents the unique character of Colorado’s business leaders that combines entrepreneurial startup experience with a global corporate background.”

Vandy was recently certified as a Blue Belt in Innovation Engineering. He earned an AB in Mathematics from Dartmouth College and an MBA from the Amos Tuck School.
