25th Anniversary





Michael Blonde
Bachelor of Business Administration, 2009

It’s been a whirlwind 12 months for Michael Blonde – not only was he recently promoted to Global Director, Enterprise Growth Strategy at Hoostsuite Media Inc. but he’s been traveling around the world to get the job done.   “What is Hootsuite?” you ask...well, it’s a social relationship platform (SRP) that helps organizations turn messages into meaningful relationships.  Hootsuite is the SRP giant that recently surpassed 15 million users worldwide and it’s only nine years old.  That’s quite an accomplishment for a young company.  We recently sat down with Michael to find out what life is like working at Hootsuite.  Click here to read the interview.
