Article by Betsi Robinson
Jerry Wass, founder and president of Anomaly Squared, will share his personal story about how he has built a thriving Greensboro-based business at the next Entrepreneurial Journeys program at UNCG on Wednesday, Sept. 18.
The 5:30 p.m. event, which is free and open to the public, will be held in Room 1215 of the Moore Humanities and Research Administration Building, 1111 Spring Garden St., on the UNCG campus. Due to limited seating, attendees are asked to register at entjourneys.eventbrite.com. Check-in will begin at 5 p.m.
Anomaly Squared uses technology, combined with online and offline media, to generate customer demand for clients in the mortgage, banking, insurance and other industries. It utilizes company-owned contact centers to facilitate both inbound and outbound demand, and its staff of talented salespeople and marketing experts from all walks of life provide unrivaled expertise in a number of fields. Anomaly will be introducing its newest division, a digital media agency, which will make it one of the largest marketing and advertising companies in the Triad.
Wass, 33, has a background in the call center industry and previously was president of First Community Mortgage in Greensboro. Founded in 2011, Anomaly Squared has grown to more than 400 employees. The headquarters in Greensboro employs about 150; a 100,000-square-foot regional contact center in Kansas employs about 250. The company continues to hire and expects a significant amount of growth in Greensboro. To support this effort, Wass recently co-founded The Anomaly Project to support local entrepreneurs and strengthen his overall commitment to the local tech community.
The program will begin with registration and networking from 5-5:30 p.m., followed by a 45-minute program, with a Q&A session afterward. Light refreshments will be served. Free parking is available near the venue on Forest or Oakland streets or behind the Weatherspoon Art Museum.
