“Well, I was born in a small town. And I live in a small town. Probably die in a small town. Oh, those small communities.” -John Cougar Mellencamp
Nate Cole grew up in Seymour, Indiana, the same small town of John Cougar Mellencamp. Just like John, Nate also has a strong passion for music, playing guitar and piano at local venues and church. However, we don’t all get the same lucky break as Mellencamp! It must be because he could sing too?
Nate also has a passion for technology, teamwork, and customer service. Recognizing a musician’s life is a hard life, he started his career in IT as desktop support at age 19. He now has 15 years of technology experience, with 9 years in a leadership role. He has a great personality for strategy, problem-solving, defining processes, and team building, focused on providing excellent quality of service.
In Nate’s most recent role before joining the agency, he would work with a variety of different small businesses to help with business process problems centered around marketing, sales, and service technologies. This is how he met HubSpot and fell in love! Now he brings this business expertise and passion to Revenue River, where we could put it to best use.
“Used to daydream in that small town. Another boring romantic, that’s me.” – John Cougar Mellencamp
Nate’s true love, outside of technology and HubSpot, is his wife, Rachel, and two boys, Evan and Lucas. They now live in a slightly bigger town, Bloomington, Indiana. He will keep living the small town lifestyle, while he joins our more big city role at Revenue River in Denver, Colorado.
“Nate is passionate about solving problems. He has a knack for finding non-traditional ways to build processes and drive success in sales implementation.” – Tony Farmer, Director of Sales and Marketing @ School Courier
“I firmly believe Nathan is a natural leader with not only great management skills, but also the ability to develop and build the members of his team. The years Nathan served as my direct supervisor, the mentorship, and sometimes even the constructive criticisms, helped me grow as a technical professional and achieve my own career goals.” – Eric McGarr, Network Engineer II @ Jacobs
