Michael Vitak is a rising junior in the Pamplin College of Business. He is pursuing a double major in marketing and entrepreneurship, innovation & technology management. His entrepreneurial spirit was sparked as a freshman in the Innovate Living-Learning Community. Vitak served on the leadership team for the program for two years, and is now working for the Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship as a Marketing Coordinator. He is also an Account Manager for PRISM, a student-led advertising agency.
Vitak is working for Venveo, a digital marketing agency in the building materials vertical, as a marketing & sales intern. His daily responsibilities include curating content for the blog, researching leads, and managing their social media presence. Vitak says that the value of communications is key for his work. Venveo has copywriters and designers spanning nine time zones, so “progress revolves around Google chat, docs, and hangouts.” Vitak is looking forward to bring his added advertising experience back to assist the CIE.
