Senior Marketing and PR Strategy Executive - US Based
Cathleen Lewis has over 20 years global marketing experience. She established her consulting company in 2009, following several high-profile positions with top agencies and Fortune 500 companies including Ogilvy & Mather, DDB Needham, and Hilton Hotels among others.
I have been recommended by my clients as one of the top freelancers on Odesk and I even have been contacted to interview as a contractor representative by Odesk on the side.
NOTE REGARDING JOB SUCCESS STAT:
I have more than 20 jobs open with past clients. Leaving these jobs open allows them to hire me periodically at the original rate that they hired me at. Some dating back to 2009. This erroneously skews this statistic down since Odesk sees these jobs as “not complete” for the purpose of their statistic. I choose to leave those jobs open as a nod to their loyalty, so, that statistic reflects those jobs as "not completed" but in actuality they are just ongoing and open for the reasons I stated above.
I have a lot of high profile experience, however, I also enjoy smaller clients too and always exceed my clients’ expectations. I have an approachable style and believe in candor in communicating with clients. I have successfully led teams as small as three and as large as twenty-five and enjoy a collaborative, productive work environment. I am also well versed in leading metrics, analytics and remarketing platforms Google Analytics, Improvely and Adrolll among others.
Here are some additional areas I have a lot of experience in:
Online Strategy and Implementation Oversight
Graphic Design (Social Media Promotions, Brochures, Direct Mail)
Overall Website Development and Design
Social Media Strategy + Facebook, LinkedIn Advertising
PPC including Adwords (I am a Google Agency) Project and Team Management
Celebrity Endorsement – A –list Entertainment
Global Conference Planning and Oversight - 350+ attendees
Crowdfunding Strategy and Implementation
SEO – Oversight
Marketing and Communications Management
Loyalty Program Administration
I have proven my ability to lead strategy and development of any campaign, brand or initiative involving many stakeholders and am adept at gaining consensus across multiple constituents when necessary. In other words, I play well with others.
Also, please keep in mind, I do not do any spec work, commission only or performance only based projects, so please don't ask. I am extremely creative and have extensive experience on big as well as small budgets... There just needs to be a budget. Also, I will be raising my rates at year end, but will honor my current rate with clients who contract with me before the end of December, 2014. I look forward to working with you.
