Jordan Poortenga, a senior majoring in marketing with a concentration in music business, said he was impressed by Roesler and his ability to help change the laws on intellectual property.
“You don’t necessarily get to meet someone who handles things like that to that degree and with that kind of success in the field,” Poortenga said.
Rob Krosley, an Anderson University senior majoring in music business, said he was interested in the changes Roesler experienced after the Internet became prevalent.
“He gave us a cool prospective of the music industry we don’t see a lot,” Krosley said. “He was able to tap into the market in a way that no one had thought of before and he just showed us that you can do almost anything anywhere.”
As for Roesler, he said the opportunity to come back to the Anderson area provided him with the perfect excuse to visit his old stomping grounds like Mounds Mall and a local donut shop.
“Anderson has changed a lot, but Anderson still feels like my hometown,” he said. “It was really a nice evening and I was thrilled to be a part of it.”
