As part of the company’s steadfast commitment to serving small businesses and nonprofits in their communities, Constant Contact®, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTCT) today announced five regional promotions that will help facilitate expansion of its local education program. Regional Development Directors Zak Barron, Wendi Caplan-Carroll, Kelly Flint, Steve Robinson, and Pamela Starr have been promoted to Area Directors. As Area Directors, they will oversee Constant Contact’s teams of Regional Development Directors (RDDs) and Authorized Local Experts (ALEs), which offer free seminars and training workshops for small business and nonprofits on best practices in email marketing, social media marketing, event marketing, daily deals, and engagement marketing. This year alone, Constant Contact’s local in-person events educated more than 150,000 people in cities and towns across North America. The program is expected to grow further in 2013 as a direct result of these promotions and the additional expansion the promotions will enable. “At Constant Contact, we’re committed to sharing our online marketing expertise to help small organizations engage their customers and drive business results.
