A Look at Lance’s Early Career
Immediately prior to his current status as President and CEO of 1SEO.com, Lance Bachmann was the Vice President of AT&T and YellowPages.com. Before AT&T, he was also a District Sales Manager at Verizon.
Vice President of AT&T and YellowPages.com (2005 — 2008)
His term as Vice President of AT&T and YellowPages.com began in 2005, and allowed him the tremendous benefit of learning from his professional role model and mentor Charles Stubbs, President of AT&T at the time. Working with Charles, Lance learned how to truly manage a business, as well as how to manage, train, and condition a company’s employees to become assets to both themselves and the company.
While at AT&T, Lance had the honor of helping the corporation found their YellowPages.com division. Under his direction and guidance, he strategically opened and staffed 20 offices throughout the United States, managed 700+ employees, and took the company from being a $0 business venture to a nearly $200 million company in just a few months. Travelling was a huge part of his time at YellowPages.com, as he spent many of his days developing and implementing a stellar training department for the YellowPages.com Account Executives in offices around the country.
During his time at YellowPages.com, Lance helped the company roll out its numerous Internet marketing services, such as search engine optimization (SEO) and pay-per-click (PPC). As he was helping to establish digital marketing for small businesses, he used his experience and knowledge to open up the doors to 1SEO.com Digital Agency.
To this day, Lance is also the youngest Vice President (at age 30) to have ever been awarded “The Eagle Award” by AT&T.
District Sales Manager at Verizon – 2002 – 2005
After graduating from Temple’s Fox School of Business, Bachmann started his career at Verizon, working his way from an Account Representative to District Sales Manager. His tenacity to learn helped him become a leading salesman and strengthened his sales expertise to help him thrive and grow 1SEO.
He was awarded and recognized for his work and sales performance on a regular basis, and always exceeded the expectations of his superiors. As District Sales Manager, he led a team that consistently generated $8-$10 million in sales in the Philadelphia area. His team was ranked No. 1 in the Big East by Verizon for their role in attaining over 540% of web sales.
