Kyle Coffey

VP of Operations

Kyle Coffey is currently the CFO and Key Utility Player for The Marketing Blender Team. Kyle started working for Blender at conception while juggling a full-time sales role at Coca-Cola. Originally, it was a weekends-only role he took for the benefits. He was provided a luxury seat at the backyard patio table of the CEO’s home along with great conversation, music, and cold beverages. This worked out well since he loves the outdoors! He has spent most of his professional career by doing things in reverse order, and living and learning (at least to most people’s standards). After a short 5-year stint with Anheuser-Busch in his early twenties, he decided to move his family across the country and chase the American Dream of becoming an entrepreneur. When one door would shut another would open and he has been going strong ever since. One thing is for sure, he has never looked back since getting a taste of entrepreneurship, except to see what he might have dropped along the way. His encouragement to you: #Youwillwin as long as you fail forward and leave room for growth.
