The philosophy of Member Engagement was first introduced to him during his tenure at Mercedes and has become a cornerstone principle of the growth strategies he implements.

Commitment & Values
He builds confidence in those around him as an enterprising business innovator who is goal driven, knowledgeable, and focused on what is possible while remaining dedicated to creating concepts and ideas that deliver valuable results. As an integral player for Proxicom’s survival through the dot-com burst, Blue was tasked with increasing revenue and profitability, streamlining operations and strategically repositioning Proxicom in preparation for sale. Remarkably, he helped successfully grow Proxicom to a $60MM business in 2007 and led the sale of Proxicom to the Goldman Sachs backed digital marketing firm iCrossing.
As Executive Pastor of Christ’s Church of the Valley (a top 5 mega church in Peoria, AZ) he helped CCV grow from 4 locations to 10, which resulted in a 370% increase in weekly attendance; a remarkable achievement that he credits to God’s provision, terrific teaching & worship and a unified strategy centered on honoring an individual’s journey of faith.
