An executive addition to your leadership team
I provide a market-based perspective to fine-tune strategy and manage implementation that drives growth, interacting with other VPs and leaders on your team from Product, Sales, Success, Service, etc. for 100% alignment.
Project management -
I get my hands dirty.
I am a career exec, not just a consultant. Our relationship doesn't end with the recommendation, but with seeing it through to completion and results. I work with the marketing team on implementation plans and programs that align with the growth goals we set when building the marketing model.
Demand and revenue generation
This is the big one. A marketing team without clear goals and direction could spend months distracted with everything but demand generation. I make sure the team is focused on the business.
Marketing and growth model
Works with Sales, Finance, and CEO to develop the company's marketing model and budget, KPIs, metrics, and plan. This model is your blueprint for execution and measurement, as well as reporting to your board of directors.
Talent acquisition and management
I build high-performing teams. Teams that evolve as your business grows. It takes a seasoned exec to know what talent and resources you need for your goals. Plus, in the short term, I bring my network of contractors and resources to help.
Brand voice and personality
I help you develop, and most importantly implement an authentic brand voice that's translated into your content, PR, and IR activities. From logo to social posts to press pitches - your brand is creating buzz.
Tech and processes
This is the age of automation and repeated processes. A high-performing marketing org needs the right set of tools and platforms to operate. I make sure the marketing team doesn't get distracted with these tasks and set clear processes, responsibilities, and accountability.
