David English, CFO
As CFO, I am excited to lead Vector Solutions in the areas of Finance and HR as we expand organically and through acquisitions into diversified areas of Learning and Human Capital Management. While my foundation is in public accounting, my roles have been CFO for both publicly traded and privately held companies, including an IPO. I have been a key member of management for high-growth companies, responsible for SEC reporting and investor relations to HR and risk management. My domestic and international experience includes multiple acquisitions and divestitures/spinoffs, debt and equity raises, software design and implementation and business process outsourcing. I have a proven ability to improve operations and maximize profitability through effective financial management. I consider myself a hands-on leader, simultaneously serving as a strategic partner to other senior management. I am a frequent speaker at conferences and events, and in 2010, I was a finalist for the Dallas Business Journal’s CFO of the year award. I am a licensed CPA in Texas and am a graduate of West Texas A&M University.
Jon Katz, EVP
My role as Executive Vice President of Corporate Development is one that you don’t find at many private companies. Since joining RedVector in 2010, I’ve been responsible for identifying, valuing, structuring, negotiating and conducting due diligence on and managing the integration of acquisitions. This includes driving the development of the corporate strategy and identifying which vertical markets we will choose to participate in.
Prior to joining RedVector, I was head of Corporate Development and Financial Planning and Analysis at Tech Data Corporation, the second largest IT distributor in the world. I was responsible for identifying, structuring and negotiating M&A transactions, as well as leading the team that consolidated Tech Data’s worldwide strategic plan and financial forecast. Previously, I spent seven years at Intuit Inc., the developers of Quicken, QuickBooks and TurboTax software. As Director of Corporate Development, I executed approximately 20 M&A transactions totaling nearly $1 billion.
Before that, I held a number of senior positions with General Electric, the most recent of which was Director of Financial Planning and Analysis at GE’s Long Term Care Insurance division. I spent 11 years in the Washington, DC area, where I earned a Master of Business Administration in Finance and Investments and a Bachelor of Business Administration from The George Washington University.
I grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and after living in Washington, DC and the San Francisco Bay area, I was offered the opportunity to move back to Florida in 2005. I now live in Tampa, just minutes from the office. I enjoy reading fiction, watching independent film, fitness, boating, biking, water-skiing, and traveling.

Victoria Zambito, Senior VP of Product, Content & Communication
I’ve been with RedVector since its first year in business, and I am often asked what it is about our company that makes it so special. I can sum it up in just a thought. When I find a job I love and a company where I know I can help make a difference, I am not going anywhere. RedVector is that place for me. It embodies the things I value most in a job. It’s a challenge every day. It’s rewarding every day. I learn something new every day. And I definitely laugh every day.
As part of the RedVector executive team, I am responsible for, and have been successful in, growing a highly profitable online education business year over year for the past 17 years. As Senior Vice President of Product, Content and Communication for Vector Solutions, parent company of RedVector, I am responsible for aligning and rationalizing Vectors’ extensive library of over 5,000 courses across its multiple brands, enhancing, standardizing and modernizing content, driving creative, agile solutions to deliver products and centralizing strategic communications and public relations as the company seeks to develop its brand around the globe. I apply a deep understanding of market drivers, competitive environment, continuing education, eLearning, and company goals that significantly impact the key strategies and execution of programs to position Vector Solutions’ training and development products and services as a market leader.
Prior to this, I led the Business to Professional (B2P) business unit, where I provided strategic leadership by collaborating with the CEO and core management team to establish long-term goals, strategies, plans and policies for growing their direct-to-consumer business. I planned, developed, organized, implemented, directed and evaluated the fiscal and functional performance of the B2P unit. I focused on bringing together the right mix of course and technology development, marketing, sales, product management and accreditation to maintain and grow RedVector’s position as a B2P continuing education leader.
From 2009 to 2012, I served as Vice President of Marketing for the Vector Solutions family of brands—RedVector, Care2Learn, CiNet and SmartTeam—supporting sales pipeline development, brand awareness and demand generation for both B2B and B2C efforts. In that role, I managed a multi-disciplined team consisting of direct and online marketers, copywriters, editors, graphic/web designers and communication specialists. Together, we focused on increasing market penetration through direct sales efforts, customer focus, improved measurement and the use of marketing technology.
Prior to my time in Marketing, I served as Vice President of Content for nine years, where my efforts focused on eLearning design, development and strategy with a spotlight on asynchronous training for the licensing and certification markets. In that role, I managed a multi-disciplined team responsible for creating, maintaining and managing more than 1,100 online courses, webinars and certificate programs. I am currently a member of the American Marketing Association, the American Society for Training and Development and the eLearning Guild.
On a personal note, I graduated magna cum laude from Florida State University and am still an avid Seminole fan. Like many people, though, I am not originally from Florida. I spent my first 18 years in a small town in Orange County, New York. I moved to the Sunshine State for college, met my future husband and never moved back North. I like reading, jogging, shoe-shopping and a good glass of red wine. But my favorite thing in the world is spending time with my husband Chris, my son Cade and my daughter Kallie. There is nothing as great as being a Mom.
Tammy Daigle, VP of Operations
The best way to learn is to teach. This is something I have lived by in my career and this philosophy has helped me to grow personally and professionally. I am excited about technology and how it is constantly changing and enhancing how we work, live, play, and best of all, learn. It with this excitement that I lead the Operations team at RedVector. In this role, I am responsible for Account Management, Client Support and Program Management and I work hard to help RedVector customers understand and use eLearning technology to better serve their own employees and customers and improve operations.
I have worked in the technology and communications fields for more than 25 years and started three successful businesses (technology consulting firm, a social networking website and strategic consulting service for non-profits), mentored countless high school and college students as well as junior executives in technology and science careers, developed award winning communications and engineering systems and led multi-million dollar certified project management initiatives. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, mentoring young people, traveling, and spending time with family. I have traveled the world personally and professionally and done mission trips to Nigeria and Haiti. I have 2 children (son Kadin and daughter Christina) and am married to the love of my life, Christopher.
David Brown, EVP of Sales and Marketing
I focus much of my attention on improving our service and responsiveness to clients, increasing the “stickiness” of our product offerings and creating an innovative RedVector vision. I believe these initiatives will expand sales opportunities at the global enterprise level, improve client renewal rates and strengthen the RedVector brand as a whole.
I bring more than 20 years of experience as a global sales leader with technology and media companies. I have a successful track record in international P&L, start-up sales and growth activity with ASPs, SaaS and Cloud B2B businesses in Toronto, Chicago, London, Hong Kong, Sydney and more. I have been at the forefront of the “outside-to-inside” sales trend, building and developing teams that provide fast, efficient, consultative sales methods by leveraging the web. By simplifying complex technology services, my teams are able to exceed revenue growth targets and business objectives.
Prior to joining RedVector, I was responsible for driving revenue and new business acquisition in North America at Fleetmatics, the industry’s leading provider of Telematics to the service industry. I also held positions at Cisco WebEx managing the WebEx Collaboration activity with Verizon — a 4,000+ rep indirect channel — and at Corbis Corporation as Director of Sales and Service.
I am the proud recipient of the 2015 American Association of Inside Sales Professionals Sales Culture Award for my dedication to promoting and preserving company sales culture, fostering a culture of learning and encouraging an entrepreneurial spirit.
I am originally from Toronto and now reside in Tampa Bay with my wife Lori and our two boys. In our spare time, we enjoy Lightning hockey and boating.
Brian Taylor, GM, Scenario Learning
I’ve had the good fortune to work in companies large and small, but my work experiences have had two common threads – learning and technology. I realized early on that computers would revolutionize the way people learn as well as knock down the walls of the digital divide. The mission of lifelong learning for all continues to be near to my heart.
My career began at Thomson Learning, where I was fortunate to work in educational software. In 1999, I opted for the exhilarating ride of entrepreneurship, where I helped co-found netTrekker, an academic search engine still popular today. Most recently, I co-founded Scenario Learning, an eLearning SaaS company whose mission is to make the world safer and more inclusive. Our training and compliance products are used by more than 4,400 school districts and colleges in North America. In early 2017, Scenario was acquired by Vector Solutions, and I’m thrilled to be a part of this immensely talented leadership team.
On a personal note, while my formal education came from great schools like Judson University, Xavier University, and Columbia University, my best learning has come from occasional failure – and having the courage to try again. Lastly, but most importantly, I’m blessed with an amazing wife and four awesome kids, who make this journey joyful and fulfilling.
