“I feel honored to be chosen,” Smith said, “especially among such distinguished colleagues. The Triangle’s technology community is a vibrant, active one filled with the brightest and best. It’s one of the reasons 3 Birds chose to locate here. I’m excited that I was recognized, but even more excited that what we’re doing at 3 Birds Marketing was recognized.”

“I’m incredibly proud that Chad was selected for this distinction, and I’m equally proud of the work his team had done for our newest software release,” said Kristen Judd, President and Co-Founder of 3 Birds. “With the release of the Wire 1.95, our team has created a comprehensive, fully integrated software solution that has robust functionality and an extensive library of content ranging from articles to images to social media posts to campaign creative,” she noted. “Chad has been able to balance the rapid growth of our platform, against the need for functionality enhancements, and he’s done so while managing to create and foster our outstanding development team. He’s really helped make our dream for this application a reality,” she added.

Smith and Judd will be speaking at the Digital Dealer Conference, presenting a session called “Data Dos and Don’ts: How to maximize your dealership’s most valuable asset to sell and service more vehicles and increase service retention.”
