Wiedner brings sales and marketing experience to the Los Angeles office
Wolf Point Advisors would love your help welcoming Wally Wiedner, to the West Coast Team as an Associate Director. Wiedner, a native of Glen Ellyn, Illinois, is thrilled to work with the organization to continue to expand its reach in the local marketplace. Wiedner’s tremendous experience in sales and marketing will be a valuable addition as Wolf Point Advisors continues to grow on the West Coast.
Following his freshman year at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Wiedner was hand-picked to join the one of the early classes of interns at Groupon, giving him extraordinary exposure to one of Chicago’s first big successes in the tech industry. After earning his Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2012, Wiedner then moved out west to California where he would work in the music industry with both Interscope Records as well as Live Nation Entertainment. He performed a number of tasks while working in the music industry, including his role as a Music Video Coordinator where he had the opportunity to work with artists such as Eminem, 50 Cent and OneRepublic.
After nearly four years in the music industry, Wiedner began working with KB Home, acting as their Corporate Marketing Contractor, where he coordinated and facilitated all projects for the team. His responsibilities of developing and promoting creative advertising across the country will transition seamlessly with Wolf Point Advisors’ expansion on the West Coast.
As his role begins with Wolf Point Advisors, he is determined to bring creativity and drive to the new position. In addition, he is thoroughly looking forward to building many new relationships, both within the industry and at Wolf Point Advisors. Wiedner’s main focus will be to use his remarkable sales and marketing skills in an effort to build upon Wolf Point Advisors’ foundation on the West Coast, as well as assisting in the firm’s Midwest growth. Wiedner’s wealth of knowledge from years of working in the Los Angeles area will prove to be extremely beneficial as we continue to expand on the West Coast. Please connect with him on LinkedIn here.
Welcome to the team, Wally!
