On-Demand CMO and Strategic Advisor

I accelerate revenue growth for B2B brands by shortening their sales cycle. I do this by aligning messaging, demand generation and sales enablement to customer journeys. By tailoring value propositions, media channels, and proof points to decision stakeholders, B2B sales teams can engage and close deals faster. It sounds easy, but few companies get it right as they focus on message personalization instead of message relevance.

As a former agency CEO, I help B2B marketing agencies implement strategy, organization, and capabilities to shift from production silo's to integrated delivery to support CMO priorities.

The expertise you need -- when you need it.
