Employee Spotlight: Robert Hammond

We closed out 2017 by looking back on the year’s biggest highlights and recognizing those who made ‘em happen. From establishing new partnerships to winning awards – A2U’s 14th year in business has been one to remember. In no small part, Robert Hammond has been an integral part of our great team.

A veteran sales guy and a Rugby world champion, Hammond hails from the Beaver State and believes that hard work and relationships are key ingredients to his success as a senior account executive at A2U. He’s been a familiar face at A2U events and among customers.

Next time you see this world traveler, you’ll know him a little bit better if you keep reading! This month, we’re happy to recognize Hammond in our Employee Spotlight post.
