Marketing Manager / Director
Forward thinking, creative marketing manager that Positions Organizations and Products for Success: My value includes quickly grasping complex projects that range in scope up to the tens of Billions, solving problems with winning, long-term strategies, presenting solutions to senior executives and 1000s of customers, managing cross-cultural global teams in multiple locations, and dealing daily with P&L.
My BSEE degree provides me the technical know-how while my MBA in Marketing and Strategy relates to the business side as I apply strong planning and analysis skills with my entrepreneurial spirit. I used market research and market intelligence to identify trends and over $20 Billion in new global opportunities; developed multimillion-dollar business cases, created competitive databases; and effectively positioned and branded over $10 Billion in new products against competition while maximizing revenue, market share, and profitability.
I’m different from most in that I think like a business owner having worked for over 100 clients and can bring you the “best of the best;” I focus on both the top and bottom lines; my reputation is reflected in the final quality; my integrity leads to repeat business, and my writing is published in over 20,000 pages of books, computer screens, marketing literature, and web pages.
I started my consulting business when my corporate job was eliminated in a massive divestiture because I loved helping companies win. After sharing my expertise with many clients during my career, I now want to focus on just one – helping take them to new heights for years to come.
