Marketplace Development | VMInnovations

Kelsey is originally from South Dakota and a 2009 graduate of the University of Nebraska with a Finance and Economics degree. While finishing her last semester of school, she stumbled upon a Husker Hirelink job posting that fit into her school schedule and paid a decent hourly wage. She took it, assuming it would be a relatively short stint. Six and a half years later, she's built a career out of the part-time job at VMInnovations, an Ecommerce company.

She started in Customer Experience and began managing the department within 6 months; far before she was ready to be in charge of her own adult life, much less anyone else’s. She was one of the first 10 hires at VM, and as the business grew rapidly, she found herself taking on numerous “side-hustles” to meet their growing needs. She has launched marketplaces, expanding their business to Amazon, Walmart, and Sears. Kelsey has been a Recruiter and HR manager, and served on the executive team to plan high level strategy for the company. Most recently, she lead VMInnovations’ re-brand. Working alongside Archrival, they changed their name and launched the Spreetail brand. In her day to day role, Kelsey leads the Marketplace Team to develop business through their Ecommerce sales channels.
