Nashville, TN (December 4, 2017) – Black River Christian’s VP of National Promotion Brian Thiele announces Ali Matkosky as the new Director of National Promotion and Strategy as reported by CMB.
 
"I had the privilege of working with Ali for four years before I came to Black River, and I can honestly say that she is one of the best Promotion people in this industry,” says Thiele. “We are excited for her to bring her expertise, personality, and passion to Black River Christian!”
