About Us

Meet The TEam

Tracy Hazzard
Chief Executive Officer
As an Inc. Innovation Columnist, Expert Product Designer, Tracy has worked with leading brands like Herman Miller, and Martha Stewart Living among others throughout her career. Her rich professional experience has given her the expertise and genuine pulse to know what clients want and how brands can promote with purpose.

Tracy delights in the privilege of being able to talk about things she is passionate about, and deeply appreciates the exchange of viewpoints during interviews with interesting people on the podcasts she co-hosts (Product Launch HazzardsWTFFF?! 3D Printing, and Feed Your Brand) with her husband and business partner, Tom, and her other shows, The New Trust Economy and The Binge Factor – a publicity podcast for podcasters.

On top of being at the height of her career, she is mom to three girls, and is a voracious reader with a current all-time record of finishing 300 books in one year.

Tom Hazzard
Chief Technology Officer
Award-winning strategic product design & development expert, Tom Hazzard, is a forward-thinking entrepreneur with great sales conversion skills. In addition to co-hosting the Forbes-featured fast growth WTFFF?! 3D Printing Podcast and the Feed Your Brand Podcast, he successfully launched over 250 consumer products raking in over $2 Billion at e-commerce and mass-market retailers with his wife and business partner, Tracy.

He believes that the goal of any product, service, marketing or business launch is to make “it” sell itself, that is why he often talks about streamlining business processes to keep marketing expenses at a minimum. Tom loves being in podcasting because he gets to meet people from many varied industries, and because he gets to broaden his perspective from all the widely different areas of interests he encounters at work.

Tom loves to work on his 1972 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia, a car that was handed down to him by his Grandmother.

Alexandra Hazzard
Champion of Order and Reason - Chief Operations Officer
Our Chief Operations Officer, Alexandra, is extremely productive every day with her systems mind and inherent resourcefulness. She liaises with clients, as well as sets-up and maintains our internal systems to make sure things run smoothly in our operations across the board.

She enjoys seeing (and listening to) all the different podcasts we have in our roster, taking each unique discussion as a learning opportunity. Alexandra takes pleasure in creating efficient systems for our internal team and in making things easier for our clients to help their respective brands grow.

Alexandra became an assistant pastry chef at a bakery before working full-time at Brandcasters. Her favorite thing to make is banana creme pie, and she bakes and decorates all the family birthday cakes!

Marlene Khamis
Marketing Director
Marlene is a creator and nationally ranked persuasive speaker with a B.A. in Business Entrepreneurship and 8 years of experience in professional sales and marketing.

Behind her contagious smile and charisma, you’ll discover a grounded character with a spontaneous lifestyle, as she chases new ideas, perspectives, and acquaintances wherever life takes her. She’s a collector of memories through photography and literature but carries a passion and appreciation for the present. Her personality has yet to be labeled, and as many have come to find, she’s a little bit of everything.

As a strong believer that empathy and genuine connection are key to becoming an invaluable creator, Marlene continuously challenges herself to listen, observe, and open her heart to all that is around her.

Agelle Bagano
Podcast Production Manager
The ultimate go-getter who always runs the extra mile, our Podcast Production Manager Agelle Bagano is a results-oriented individual fueled by her innate drive to succeed.

She started as a transcriber for Brandcasters, and quickly proved to the whole team that she can tackle any challenge thrown her way as she quickly moved into her current leadership position.

Now, Gell manages multiple teams, overseeing tasks from one spectrum to the other with her sharp eye for detail. Gell has six dogs, loves reading for leisure, and she thinks it’s awesome to be working in the podcasting industry because it is never boring or never repetitive. “You learn a little of everything. There’s always something new to discover each day,” Gell says.
