When Angel Rogers moved to Nashville in 2007 she was no stranger to Music City.
Born and raised in Indiana, Angel was an ice skater and spent hours at the Metroplex ice rink training and competing. She always knew she wanted to move here, and did so not long after graduating from the University of Southern Indiana.
Angel marvels at Nashville’s transformation in seven short years. She’s a regional manager for web.com, an online marketing company with a big digital presence and offices in 17 other U.S. markets. Angel started with the company, which provides marketing and website services, in April 13 and has built a seven-member team from her office in the Regus suites overlooking the new Music City Center.
A new Nashville City Club member, Angel takes part in multiple networking groups, including Ladies Connect, a monthly breakfast. “The caliber of the speakers is amazing,” she says. “We (at the company) belong to a lot of networking groups but don’t often see people of such stature.”
Prior to joining web.com, Angel was a sales manager at Service Source, where the number of employees grew from 128 to more than 600 during her four-year tenure. Growth there is symbolic of what is going on in Nashville, she says.
“I think Nashville is on the cusp of something really huge,” Angel says.
As the city’s technology and entrepreneurial sectors grow, Nashville has retained its friendly, hometown feel. “Every person who has moved to Nashville within a few days feels at home,” she says.
The City Club is a second home, where everyone really does know her name. “They make you feel really special,” Angel says. “I am proud of being a member.”
