Why Work With Me


I have 20+ years hands-on experience in building companies, brands and go-to-market strategies. No matter what the challenges or constraints, I've been there and succeeded.


With a background as both a corporate marketing executive and a consultant, I’m not only business savvy, but an expert in the psychology that builds brands and develops dedicated customers.


Even a stellar marketing program won’t work if you can’t execute on it. My programs are straight-forward and tailored for your business goals and the skill-sets of the personnel available.


From award-winning craft beer to enterprise technology, my clients enjoy a level of success few others do. I’ve helped grow dozens of companies, played a key role in 6 M&As and 2 NASDAQ IPOs.
