New Team Member Joins WhereBridesGo.com!


Hi Everyone!

I want to introduce myself as the newest team member for WhereBridesGo.com. I'm Mike Waggett (yes - Sandy's Hubby) and I'm joining the team as the Vice President for Business Development. Let me tell you, even though I had an inside track to the job, the interview was still pretty tough.
A little bit about myself... I just retired from the United States Air Force after 24 years. The Air Force was pretty good to me...I served as a fighter pilot, assistant professor at the US Air Force Academy, and served some time at the Pentagon among many other assignments. I was lucky enough to get three Masters degrees paid for by Uncle Sam, and ended my career as the Commander of a large training and education center for the Air National Guard.
I met Sandy while stationed at Nellis Air Force Base and working at RED FLAG (Fighter Pilot training program). We moved together to Colorado Springs where we eventually married at the wonderful chapel on the US Air Force Academy. Sandy started the business in 1999 on a part time basis as she was working as a senior engineer with BAE Systems/Lockheed Martin. When we moved to Knoxville, TN as a military reassignment, she went for it and worked fulltime on growing the business!

I'm very proud of her efforts building WhereBridesGo.com along with the wedding portal sites in 26 markets across the country, plus her highly successful web site design and hosting company (MSW Interactive Designs, LLC). I'm excited about joining her team and using my skills to help push WhereBridesGo.com to even greater heights. It's easy to rave about the company because I've seen first hand the quality and affordable products offered to our wonderful customers, and the absolute top-notch customer service provided to ensure all our clients are satisfied.

More to come in the future!

Best
Mike Waggett
