Picture a marketing tool that could potentially reach anyone at any moment, casting a large, highly-targeted net while directly conveying a specific message. This advertising tactic is the cornerstone of Qittle, an Aspen-based mobilemarketing provider that’s revolutionizing the way businesses reach their consumers – by using text messaging. Casey McConnell’s entrepreneurial spirit rings (or vibrates) with each message. 

“The mobile phone is the new personal computer,” says the soon-to-be 31-year-old CEO. Qittle provides an instantaneous line of contact between company and consumer: Whether it’s announcing eight inches of new snow at Snowmass or a new “Body Pump” class at Aspen Club & Spa, Qittle’s platform gives clients the freedom and mobility to communicate at the press of a button.

The future looks bright for Qittle. Clients are jumping on board in droves, and McConnell has big plans for his business. “I want Qittle to be to mobile what Google is to search.”



About Casey McConnell

Casey McConnell, the Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, founded Qittle in September 2008. Before founding Qittle, Mr. McConnell was the Marketing Director for The Aspen Club & Spa. Raised in Greeley, Colorado, Casey attended The Colorado School of Mines on an athletic scholarship for football. After college, Casey worked for his family's construction business before beginning his first Internet endeavor--Zoe Juice. Casey moved to Aspen, Colorado where he worked in the hospitality industry before starting at The Aspen Club & Spa in 2006. He worked to develop a vitamin line for the club before he was promoted to Marketing Manager in 2007. In his work with email marketing, Casey sees the potential text messaging will bring to the global marketplace-- much like how email exploded in the early part of the century. Casey is a member of Roaring Fork Leadership as well as the Aspen Young Professionals Association. He spends his free time in the mountains hiking in the summer and hitting the slopes in the winter. In the future, Casey hopes to take Qittle global and envisions the brand Qittle to be the number one company for text messaging solutions for businesses of all kind. Qittle, whose name Casey derived from different words meaning "talk" or "chatter," became a vision of how to quantify marketing efforts while incorporating the newest promising way to relay messages- mobile text messaging.
