"The nicest Marketing guy you've worked with lately."

Jerry Weltner
Vice President Marketing/Sales
TRIsource, Inc.


Weltner's Axiom:

People like what they know, and want what they like.

First Corrollary to Weltner's Axiom:

People are most productive in the environment they know best.

Note: This is NOT a formula for inertia. Rather, it is a strategy for marketing where you must recognize that even new, excitingly different ideas/products/etc. must first start where the customer is comfortable, and move forward from there. "XYZ is just like ABC, only faster/slower, smaller/bigger, more efficient/cheaper, or whatever."

Priorities in Life

Faith in God

I am a member of the Redmond United Methodist Church, where I have been Chairman of the Administrative Board and a Sunday School teacher, and now will be serving as the Chairman of the Council of Ministries. I also play hand bells in the Church choir, and I'm a member of the "Walk to Emmaus."


Let me introduce you to Anne, Matthew, and Katie.


I'm Vice President of Marketing/Sales at TRIsource, a Seattle company specializing in Windows development services. We not only work hard at TRIsource, we play hard, too. If you don't believe me, check out the Human Bowling Ball Page. Be forewarned that there are some large graphics here.
