Andrew Smith joined PromoSuite in 2013 serving as Operations Coordinator before being promoted to Director, Client Services. Smith has a radio background, starting his career in 1996 at WECW-FM, a student-run station at Elmira College in New York where he served as Operations Coordinator, General Manager and on-air talent. After an internship with WAXQ-FM/New York (Q104.3), he landed at Citadel/Syracuse, NY as a member of the Street Team, then local producer of the Howard Stern Show on WAQX-FM (95X) as well as on-air on WLTI-FM and WIII-FM. After five years, Smith moved to Binghamton, NY where he served as Promotions Director, evening host on WHWK-FM and afternoon drive on WAAL-FM.
“Rocco & Chris have given me the opportunity to grow and advance professionally over the last 8+ years.” Smith said, “I’m excited for this new opportunity to work alongside our incredible product development team. This is an extraordinary time at PromoSuite as we continue to release amazing products, and I’m thrilled to be a part of making those products the best they can be.”
Mike Englebrecht also has a deep radio background that began in 1997 when he joined WKQX-FM/Chicago (Emmis) as an intern. Over the next seven years, he held leadership roles within marketing, sales, and programming. In 2004, he transitioned to Emmis Interactive where he held various positions including Director of Affiliate Relations overseeing client success and technical support. Emmis then moved him to NextRadio (TagStation) where he served as the Director of Product Engagement. In 2018, Mike went out on his own where he began to help companies across the country with business process development and workflow automation.
“I enjoy helping people leverage technology to solve problems and transform their business operations in the process,” Englebrecht added. “What we are building here at PromoSuite will help our customers do exactly that. There’s nothing like it currently available to Radio, which is one of the many reasons I’m excited to join the team.”
