This webinar is intended for our more experienced advocates as well as those just getting started on the walking path.

Attendees will of this webinar:

  • Learn about how existing apps can add to the experience of walking
  • Hear exciting ways technology is being used to get new people to start walking
  • Receive resources and recommendations on how to use technology in their own work of walking groups and clubs
About the Panel

Kim Fassetta is the Chief Marketing Officer for AfterShokz. Kim’s passion for making AfterShokz a household name is tireless, and she takes pride in fueling the team with positive energy daily. As the publicist honored with launching the brand back in 2011, she’s been tied to the company’s growth from day one and is personally committed to changing the way people use headphones.

Kim’s career in the consumer technology industry started one week after graduating from University of Delaware, at NAPCO Media, managing marketing and events for several arms of the trade publishing house—with the CE group capturing her heart. Two years later she made a cross-country move, from Philadelphia, PA to Phoenix, AZ for the opportunity to handle public relations and communications for DBL Distributing Inc. Prior to DBL’s sale, she moved just a few zip codes away to OmniMount, to serve as the brand manager for both the consumer and commercial divisions in the company’s prime. In 2009, a personal move took her to Texas, and social4media—the boutique public relations firm she co-founded—was born.

As the CMO of AfterShokz, Kim oversees the brand’s global marketing strategy and sales in North America. She’s guided the course from its introduction, helping AfterShokz to find its place in a crowded headphone landscape—now, proudly and confidently, the leading bone conduction headphone manufacturer globally.

Though a Jersey girl at heart, she’s come to love the Texas Hill Country she calls home with her husband and son. She’s a reader, tries to be a runner, and enjoys anything that’ll take her outdoors and off-road in her Jeep.
