I have been working in international marketing and sales for over 15 years with companies such as the American Medical Association, Direct Merchant’s Bank, Dassault Systems, and Gorilla Logic to name a few. Throughout my career I have held various management positions in both marketing and sales in a diverse set of industries, developed strategies for market and product development, implemented aggressive plans for entering new markets and increasing corporate size through increased sales and marketing designed to increase market share and shorten sales cycles.
I have had the opportunity to work with both start-ups and Fortune 500 companies as clients, customers and partners including NBC/Universal, Verizon Wireless, Toyota, Boeing, Ford, Harley-Davidson and Zappos.com as examples.
Selected by Colorado Biz Magazine as one of the 25 Most Powerful Sales Professionals in January 2009, I am also a graduate with honors of Regis University’s MBA in Marketing program and as a result of my experience have developed a unique perspective on the role of sales and marketing in an organization as well as methods for ensuring greater cooperation and returns.
However; despite having strong opinions and having assisted companies in implementing aggressive plans for optimizing marketing and sales, I know education is a process not a destination and I find the best ideas and insights come from open and honest dialogue from the people who live and breath these disciplines on a daily basis.
So welcome to my blog and I look forward to a discussion among professionals designed to ensure we are always at our best.
