Senior Client Success Manager – Cordial Experience

Max holds a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology – Sports Administration with a focus in Public Relations from the University of Houston and is currently employed as Senior Client Success Manager at Cordial supporting large national retail clients.  Before his current role at Cordial, Max managed the email marketing program for national homebuilder David Weekley Homes, and assisted all digital media efforts such as paid advertising, website content updates, and customer care responses. He also worked with the marketing department for Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) where he supported all PR and Social Media efforts, as well as coordinated promotional events for their monthly performances and their yearly awards show.  Before his career in the marketing industry, Max worked for a non-profit organization, MetDance, which focuses on providing dance education to children across the greater Houston area.  At MetDance, he also managed their annual fundraising competition and workshop events.

Prior to completing school, Max travelled the world working professionally as a performer and entertainer. He worked with Disney Entertainment in Tokyo and Orlando, spent two years performing at sea with Celebrity Cruise Lines, and then toured the US performing in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular with the Rockettes. Max enjoyed teaching dance as much as he did performing, which then led to a 10-year teaching career where he taught musical theatre and dance to students and adults of all levels and abilities.  With his personal values of family, passion, travel, and authenticity, Max is currently focused on creating as much of an impact as possible in whatever way he can. Max and his husband Jeremy have two dogs (Max (the dog) and Toby), and are enjoying spending time with their daughter Addison. Texas is currently home, but family extends from Ohio to Louisiana and across the pond to England.
