Please extend a proper RT Community hello to Chris "The Martinizer" Martin, Rooster Teeth's new sales guy. He's been working undercover for me the past few months in support of our RTX, podcast and AH sales ventures, but his skills and success in inspiring companies to partner with us can no longer be ignored. Chris and I are excited to continue to develop and build the list of partner companies who want to interact with all of you in person at RTX and in support of the Podcast, Achievement Hunter and the rest of the Rooster Teeth catalogue of shows.
(and regarding his nickname?... that's a Matt question)

Hey community, y'all rule and I owe you a huge thank you.
So here goes:
Thanks for being supportive of my new Business Development position at RT.
Thanks for supporting our new sponsorship model for the RT Podcast, Achievement Hunter shows, and RT Recap.
Thanks for checking out our advertisers and giving them an incentive to continue working with Rooster Teeth.
It's always iffy territory to initiate new advertising and sponsorship models - especially with such a tight knit and long-standing community such as ours. But you guys have been great. Amazing in fact. Every advertiser that has run a test ad or campaign with us has come back, begging to continue working with us. And that simply would not be the case if you all just ignored them. So because of your awesome support, we can continue to:
1) Hire more top talent and community members.
2) Increase the production value and grow our existing shows like the RT Podcast, RT Shorts and Immersion.
3) Fast Track development of new productions (RWBY for example!!)
4) Build RTX into a world class gaming and Internet/Rooster Teeth culture event.
I can't wait for you to see what we have in store for you this year. It's a good time to be part of the coolest online community in the world...ever...of all time.
(And rest assured, we will always be aggressively protective about retaining our voice, creativity and humor (do you really think the AH guys would allow otherwise??)

Hello RT community, my name is Alan and I'm the new Director of Business Development (or "Sales Dude" according to Barbara) here at Rooster Teeth.
Since my job title here is a bit vague and corporate sounding, I decided it was important for me to introduce myself directly to y'all and give you a bit of an overview of what I intend to do in partnership with Burnie, Matt, Geoff, Gus and the rest of the Rooster Teeth, Achievement Hunter, and RTX Event team.
For starters, my first and most important job is to ensure that you, our faithful community, will continue to get the funniest, edgiest and most informative gaming and comedy content available on the web…. ad supported and free - just like always.
So what does that exactly mean? Well some examples would be early copies of games sent to the AH team in support of upcoming releases (and early "Let's Play" and "This Is…" episodes for you), advertiser sponsorships to support the growth of the Rooster Teeth Podcast, AHWU and other AH shows. And the development of new partnerships that will help us produce more shows like The Gauntlet, A Simple Walk To Mordor and RWBY.
Additionally, I will be partnering with Gus and Barbara to build RTX into the most unique and fun gaming/internet culture event in the country.
And like all of you, I'm a huge fan of everything RT.
I've been following RvB since the first episode (yea, I was an active participant with the thousands of you in taking down the teleNetworks servers trying to get a copy of RVB ep 1) and I'm a huge fan of RT's live action stuff, especially Immersion and the RT Shorts series. (rumor has it that i was the cop at the end of Unusual Suspects).
So thanks again for your support as I assist in ensuring that RoosterTeeth.com and AchievementHunter.com continue to be the best sites on the net!
