    Award winning Marketing pro...Wharton degree

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 3

    My objective is to help clients create marketing/sales leverage. Archimedes discovered the principle of leverage, how a small weight can move a large object. And marketing leverage is how businesses grow. Identify the fulcrum (aka "The Big Idea"), apply marketing weight, and lift sales dramatically. With 20 years of marketing and sales management experience at big (Pepsi, Holiday Inn, AAA) and small companies, I've managed virtually every aspect of strategic planning, marketing and sales program development, collateral and communications production, internet presence, and research and analysis. Two of my programs won national "Best of the Year" honors in separate industries. I have a degree from the Wharton School. I appreciate working with clients who understand the value of talent and experience, and who expect great results.
