Business Development and Marketing Professional

About Me

Accomplished business development and marketing professional. I have exceeded business development revenue quotas for 10 consecutive years, and have managed business providing excess of $30 million annually to my employers. After a strong foundation in marketing and market research with some of the world's leading providers, I remain committed to the sales and marketing profession and succeed leveraging the highest degrees of integrity and a thorough understanding of what my customers need.
I am looking to begin another chapter in my career by finding a firm that can leverage my talents in business development, account management or in a marketing role. Happy to start as an individual contributor and grow through delivering success.

Outside of work I enjoy the outdoors (camping, hiking etc), astronomy (or anything science related), history, and family activities. Just started to volunteer at House of Mercy, a low income-assistance local charity. I am interested in anything involving successful strategies and tactics (games, lessons from history etc)

My Success Stories

Shutterstock 500931010 IXI's Affluence Segmentation

Very proud of the role I played in the successful launch of IXI's Affluence Segmentation. I worked closely with the product team to develop the tools required for successful segmentation in the financial services industry. Concurrent to product development, I developed the marketing plan for the segmentation and the awareness for its' applications. I drove IXI's banking revenues from ZERO to almost $20 million in recurring revenues in 6 years. They were then acquired by Equifax. I never lost a customer or a competitive sales situation over my tenure at IXI.

I managed both a large group of relationships and a group of Account Managers AND the Nielsen Market Audit study. I reengineered the Market Audit study content to be more in-line with client information needs, and helped redesign the deliverables to be most useful to Nielsen's customers. The group had a strong ROI under my leadership, with almost $30 million in recurring revenues and happy customers.
