Shortly after my eighteenth birthday I planned and implemented my first marketing strategy, complete with an event platform. Three years later I sold the intellectual property rights and trademark to Anheuser Busch which became part of their Michelob brand introduction. Over the next twenty five years, I designed and implemented data-driven marketing strategies to introduce exciting new products and innovative branding strategies that integrated corporate giving with organizations’ direct marketing strategies. I have been CEO of a small organization and advisor to C-Suites of Fortune 500 organizations. Experience has taught me to lead by example and exceed expectations by keeping my team highly motivated. I win when my organization wins.
