"There is nothing in this world more exciting, more rewarding, and fast-paced than finding, pitching, and winning new business. But let's face it. There is also nothing harder."
I've been Chief Marketing Officer and New Business Leader at a variety of small and mid-size agencies. I have created and managed comprehensive advertising agency business development programs that have generated millions of dollars of new revenue. I have also built internal marketing services organizations for clients, managed multi-million dollar marketing budgets, hired and fired agencies and generated great outcomes in support of diverse business objectives. I now provide my experience and practical know-how to agencies who want to improve their business development efforts and win more and better clients.
I have worked with some of the top innovative brands in the world and aggressive advertising agencies in both traditional and digital channels by leveraging research, data analysis, and market trends to impact customers, employees, and the bottom line. I am in the top 1% on LinkedIn, one of the top CMOs on Twitter, and have over 15 years of hands-on experience prospecting, pitching, and winning new clients for agencies.
