With a firm grasp on the marketing disciplines and maximizing opportunities, I've come into companies, defined the marketing team's role, and built its function from the ground up -- all while building and leveraging the brand to generate revenue and retain customers. More importantly, I ensure that marketing delivers results that matter to leadership.
