I've been fortunate to work with some world-class brands, in both the off-line and online marketing space – Disney, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line and Sandals Resorts, to name a few. I've grown up from the beginning of the World Wide Web and led efforts to build web sites and e-commerce platforms. But it's all based on solid Marketing principles, not just smoke and mirrors.
And, I have a talent to build a team and bring out their best talents to make a successful department. When leading a team, I determine the work styles and talents of each individual, and work differently with each team member.
If you want to know more about me, beyond what's on my résumé, check out the results from my recent "Predictive Index Survey."
I've built strategies around all areas of online marketing – email marketing, affiliate programs, lead generation, banner/network display, e-commerce and web site usability enhancement.
