(AUSTIN, TEXAS) Engagency is pleased to announce Keith Dezern as its new chief revenue officer. Dezern will oversee Engagency’s East Coast expansion from its new Reston, Va., office and grow Enagagency’s enterprise technology platforms, geographic reach and verticals.
“We are pleased to have Keith as the head of our new East Coast office expansion,” said Engagency President and CEO Jason Perry. “He is a digital tech and business-enterprise expert who has a stellar reputation in digital transformation. Keith will be a strategic consultant for global brands to help them embrace new digital innovations and grow their businesses,” he said.
Prior to Engagency, Dezern served as vice president of Reingold Inc. in Arlington, Va., where he built an enterprise technology practice and commercial vertical and served as the program lead for the 2020 Census website implementation.
Dezern‘s background in building and expanding new businesses includes co-founding the first VoIP company in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Triton Communications Group; angel investment and consulting company The Antilles Group; and VoIP platform and mobile security services provider StratusTalk, all of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.

“I am looking forward to working with the team our founders built and unleashing that potential into new areas of growth,” Dezern said. “We are in the right market and in the right place – Austin is a very established tech hub, and Reston is the Silicon Valley of the East Coast. We are poised for growth,” he said.
