Our Team

who we are + what we do

We are a team of strategists, developers, designers and communicators with a common goal of helping our clients grow. When building Boxwell, Rod Bolls set out to create a company that prioritizes a balance between working hard and playing hard. He aligned a strong business model with a strong team and a sustainable work environment. Headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, Boxwell is a close-knit, light-hearted group who enjoys doing things as a team. In fact, having fun together is part of our secret to success.

Since 2015, the Boxwell team has grown into a group of talented and passionate people. We value our work, family, friends and local community. Each of us has unique skills and talents, and we work together to serve our customers and the community we call home. To achieve our ideal company culture, we nurture the relationships we have with our customers, partners, vendors, and local non-profit organizations.

At the core, Boxwell uses a hands-on approach to business that is carried throughout everything we do. When we need to talk, we pick up the phone. If there are questions, we demo our product. When intrigued with something new, we give it a try. With imagination, compassion, and perseverance, anything is possible. That’s our culture.
