Greg Henderson, 26
Director of Marketing
Arkansas Manufacturing Solutions
After graduating from Ouachita Baptist University at Arkadelphia with a degree in political science, Greg Henderson landed a Web design job at Aristotle Inc. of Little Rock.
Henderson later received an offer to run the Internet marketing department at the North Little Rock satellite-dish distributor Perfect 10. It was an offer he couldn't refuse.
While at Perfect 10, Henderson pulled its marketing department into the digital era, a feat he considers one of his most significant accomplishments. "So we basically moved from being a print-only company to being more digital," Henderson said. "And as a result, it saved them money."
Now, as the director of marketing at Arkansas Manufacturing Solutions, Henderson is following the same M.O. Henderson said one of his greatest challenges is developing an effective Web presence for Arkansas Manufacturing Solutions.
Henderson's interests encompass more than his career. After graduating from college, Henderson helped launch a program called Common Ground, an after-school program for troubled youth.
Henderson is working on his master's degree in applied communication from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and may eventually teach. But for now, he's giving Arkansas Manufacturing everything he has.
