Founder, Resmark Systems
After working in sales and marketing for 2 of the largest corporations in America, Brandon has spent the last 10 years as Director of Marketing and now Vice President of Western River Expeditions, one of the nation's leading adventure travel operators. During this time, Brandon co-founded Moab Adventure Center in Southern Utah. Together with a talented team of guides and staff, he grew this new venture to a multi-million dollar tour company in just a few years.
Then in 2005, sensing an overwhelming need for technology that could help his own companies and the general industry operate and sell more efficiently, Brandon founded Resmark Systems, a revolutionary reservation and marketing system. Today, Resmark is used by tour companies throughout North and South America.
