In each of these roles, he engineered projects within omnichannel and customer experience, developed long-term commerce solutions, and expanded all system offerings.

“I was attracted to Astound’s concentrated efforts on the composable practice market,” said Linebarger. “This team consists of people and elements pioneering innovation and success, and I am eager to take the lead in guiding this practice to offer clients unique and effective products that drive revenue.”
