Karl Populorum serves as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for RBA.

Karl joined RBA as employee #16 back in 2006, leaving a VP position at a large industry player to become a sales rep at the 5 month old start up to pursue the dream of BUILDING SOMETHING SPECIAL. From those rather desperate early days, I have been blessed to work side by side with incredible talent to help build one of fastest growing private services companies in the country. In 7 short years, we have evolved from year one start up to a $50M+ National Systems Integrator with offices in three U.S. Regions delivering leading edge tech, digital, and CRM services across the globe. On the personal side: Karl brings a potent blend of rural Wisconsin work ethic, 27 years of proven industry experience, an obsession for serving customers, a child-like passion for learning, closet creative skills, an M.B.A. in Marketing, the ADHD fueled ability to never hear NO, and a lifelong commitment to continuous improvement as the founder of ONE PERCENT BETTER Inc. .
