About Chris Moody
Chris Moody is a marketing dork.
Marketing changes daily. Most marketers aren’t keeping up. I’m one of the many trying to do something about that.
I live in the Raleigh / Triangle area of NC. I’m a Senior Marketing Manager at Red Hat and frequently speak at marketing events and at various universities. Growing up in Tobacco Road has fostered a love for college basketball and playing basketball, golf and softball. Most importantly, I have a beautiful wife, an extremely handsome son and a great family.
All views here are my own.
