Will Lead Fast-Growing BattleFrog Race Series' Marketing & Social Media Teams
By: BattleFrog, LLC
BattleFrog's CEO Ramiro Ortiz said Mr. Jones will add a new element of leadership and enthusiasm to its strong marketing team, stating: "Kevin Jones is a man who needs no introduction within our sport and I am very pleased to welcome him to our team. He has a long history of leadership in OCR from serving as the first community manager of the OCR World Championships to nurturing and growing a number of OCR groups and companies in his native Ohio. His enthusiasm is contagious and it will be reflected in BattleFrog's outreach and customer service."
Mr. Jones became involved in Obstacle Course Racing several years ago with a personal goal to become fit and live a healthy lifestyle. He quickly fell in love with the sport and Mr. Jones says that he believes his new role can help change lives. He stated: "BattleFrog is about love of country, family, friends, fitness and the great outdoors. OCR is more than just a sport to me, it is a life changing event. I've spent the last few years teaching people of all shapes and sizes about the benefits of being part of outdoor fitness communities and watched them achieve their very best. To now be sharing this message on behalf of the fastest growing company in the sport is an incredibly rewarding opportunity."
Mr. Jones, who also has a background in electrical engineering and project management, will bring an analytics-based approach to marketing and customer service. He said, "BattleFrog has already earned the reputation as the industry's most responsive and customer-focused company. We are going to build on everything BattleFrog is doing right and continue the best practice of blending social media and customer service. We know our customers want to reach us when, how and where they want and we are ready to exceed their expectations. We have a really strong team and I consider myself fortunate to join this great group of people."
And of course, Mr. Jones said he will continue to train for and participate in BattleFrog events nationwide. "Our slogan isn't 'Gotta Live It!' for nothing," he said before adding, "I haven't hit my personal best yet!"
