Profile: Brian Vickery

I love my wife and two daughters. I am blessed in that I also love my job as a principal and EVP of the Rocky Mountain Region for Mantis Technology Group. I am very excited about our Pulse Analytics  offering for social media listening and analytics. I try to play as much tennis as I can. I graduated UT-Austin, and I root for the Denver Broncos, Denver Nuggets, and Texas Longhorns!
