About me

Aaron Kesler

 Aaron is an entrepreneur, certified product manager, and overall product enthusiast. Currently he’s the Director of Product Management at Conductiv where he is working on new product development and developing repeatable product processes.

Aaron started his first company, STAK, in college which focused on application development for small businesses. One of his clients was also a quickly growing startup called Carvertise. After working with Aaron on a few projects, Carvertise acquired STAK, making Aaron and his business partner the third and fourth members of the Carvertise team. While at Carvertise, Aaron wore many hats from Product Management to Customer Success to Lead Developer and all the way to Sales. Under Aaron’s technical leadership, Carvertise won Tech Startup of the Year 2015 for the state of Delaware.

After three years, Aaron moved down to Raleigh, NC on a whim. Working at Starbucks for a year, he met some absolutely amazing folks before he joined a slightly larger startup. He became the 30th member of TopQuadrant before going to Blue Cross NC in 2019 and then Conductiv in 2021. In his free time, Aaron is working on a book to help new product managers break into the field by giving them a solid process to follow. For fun he enjoys playing golf with his dad every Friday, traveling to foreign countries, and practicing ukulele.
