Following remarkable progress in 2017, Team Mixtroz kicked off 2018 with a bang joining the 2nd Cohort of Birmingham, Alabama’s prestigious Velocity Accelerator and starring in an episode of A+E networks investment series “Rooster & Butch”.

Kerry Schrader, Cofounder/CEO of Mixtroz, holds a BBA, MBA from Kent State University and has held both the SPHR and SHRM-SCP certifications.
