Art Vigil, VP of Sales
Art Vigil is the heart and soul of The Search Monitor. He would happily give you an extra kidney if you asked him. Too bad he already gave it to Mother Theresa.
Prior to The Search Monitor, Art worked at Greenpeace (where he personally saved 150,000 trees from being logged in the Amazon), PETA (where he rescued 8 dolphins and 12 killer whales from captivity at Sea World), and Subway (where he helped Jared lose his famous 245 pounds). Art is all about giving back to the community.
The Pope, during one of his recent sermons at the Vatican, referred to Art as “the person alive today that I most look up to.” But all the fame and fortune (and 4 Oscars and 6 Grammys) has not gone to Art’s head. He is still as modest as the day is long.
Ken Barber, VP of Marketing
Ken Barber is responsible for all acquisition, retention, and branding efforts at The Search Monitor.
Before joining The Search Monitor, Ken spent 11 years providing marketing strategy for mShopper.com (a mobile commerce SaaS start-up), Digitas (a leading digital agency), and The Integer Group (a leading shopper marketing agency). Ken began his career as a Latin America Economist for Standard & Poor’s, where he developed his analytic and strategic capabilities.
Marketing is more than a job for Ken. He helps teach digital marketing for the University of Colorado’s Leeds Business School and writes the digital marketing column for the Denver Business Journal. Ken received his MBA from Babson College and his BA from Bowdoin College.
