Meet The Team
Mountain biking ex-trucker. Jeremy was a former Partner and Executive Vice President at KLAS. He grew KLAS a ton while being a general pain in the neck. His goal is to burn the market research industry to the ground so something much better will emerge from the ashes.
Thirsty Sandian. Ayre, as he’s affectionally known around the office, is a wicked-smart programmer with a deep-seated love for Pepsi Max. Bred in the Greater Salt Lake area, Ayre’s tenacity for innovation will excite and leave you begging for more.
Born & raised in Ohio, Al moved to Utah to be closer to his first love, Mountain Biking. He put himself through college by wrenching on bikes. Al graduated first in his class from UVU, hung up his pedal wrench & picked up his calculator at Peterson & Harris, CPA. It was over their shared passion for mountain biking that Jeremy connected with Al, later inviting him to join the Reaction team.
SVP – Customer Success
Ever been to a national park in Utah? If so, you’ve probably crossed paths with Mark Wagner. Mark spent 7 years helping to grow the market research firm KLAS as a Senior Director. He’s healthcare savvy, quick witted, and everyone’s best friend. If he doesn’t answer your phone call, it’s probably because he’s repelling a 200ft cliff and doesn’t quite have a spare hand…leave a message, he’ll get back to you!
Director Of Marketing
Elementary teacher, turned high school teacher, which led to a love for all things digital media. When she’s not busy with her 3 kids she’s usually working on some sort of graphic design, videography, or animation project.
Originally from Utah, Erin’s family moved to San Diego when she was 16—where she met her handsome husband. Needless to say, she now spends her holidays in paradise. If Erin had to choose her spirit animal, it would be a camel. It’s not worth asking why. When she isn’t at work or sleeping, you can find her at home, cooking elaborate meals (aka top ramen), watching TV with her husband (always with ice cream), or out discovering new places.
Brought on for experience in customer service and engaging with people it’s rare to see her without a smile. She’s a people person through and through, and is unafraid to start up a conversation with just about anyone. When she isn’t at work she can be found rock climbing, paddle boarding, or fawning over the nearest dog. If that dog happens to be yours rest assured she’ll ask before she pets it.
A textbook nerd and classical singing enthusiast. When Emma isn’t working, she’s either playing piano or vigorously exercising at a level that is questionably unhealthy. For Reaction she slings data.
Nate is the veteran data monkey. Aside from his rugged good looks and insane running ability, Nate brings to the reaction team a diverse set of computer skills that help move the work forward. From microsoft office to looker Nate can handle any problem you throw at him. When he gets lucky enough he also tags along with Jeremy and Mark and shreds like no other on the mountain bike.
Brendan is an intern at Reaction Data. Although he enjoys his work in the workplace, his coworkers are his favorite part of work!
