I couldn’t be happier to have them both join the team—they’re both incredible leaders and fun individuals to work with,” he added.

Voxie was launched in 2019 as a unique way for retailers, franchises, restaurant chains and other businesses to communicate via text with their customers to develop relationships that result in increased revenue and stronger customer loyalty. Voxie now helps many consumer businesses impacted heavily by COVID-19 to sustain and increase revenue by promoting new channels such as curbside pickup, personalized in-store offers and enabling businesses to talk directly with their customers.
Earlier this month, Voxie raised $6.7 million in Series A funding. The round was led by Noro-Moseley Partners with additional participation from well-known Atlanta entrepreneurs Wain Kellum, Andy Powell, Kyle Porter, David Cummings and Fred Castellucci, as well as Circadian Ventures and Engage Ventures.
