An architect by training, a collaborative technologist by practice, I found my passion in strategic marketing and business development. I bring an award-winning B2B technology design thinking and marketing and sales leadership for national AEC firms delivering innovative customer-focused solutions and client-focused strategies to enable market expansion and record revenues of $200M+.
My marketing and technology expertise combines C-level marketing/brand strategy experience with deep technical knowledge in AV/IT design solutions to execute robust client development roadmaps that secure business with national corporate, educational, healthcare, and government clients.
Known AEC industry-wide for thought leadership, I share my extensive experience through writing and speaking on leading-edge marketing, design, and technology topics in AEC industry forums/publications, My focus is on the impact of technology industry developments on learning space, workspace, and healing environments.
A transformational growth driver with a proven track record of building new AEC and technology consulting organizations from the ground up to multimillion-dollar firms, I deliver market-focused business development strategies and M&A planning and execution.
In my 20+ year career, I initiated and implemented data-driven business strategy and customer-centric sales and marketing programs for two large architecture/engineering companies, a Fortune 500 audio manufacturing giant, and a Silicon Valley technology integrator, that contributed to the generation of $200M+ in revenues at all four companies.
My approach is to streamline and focus B2B client engagement efforts to critical markets through proactive marketing focused on positive customer experience and long-term relationship development, resulting in sector growth and record profitability. Building marketing and solutions teams from the ground up to support and position integrated service brands in the B2B design space resulted in growing revenue and profit at a record pace.
Leading new marketing and business development initiatives, participating in ten merger/acquisition teams, and helping raise $20M in venture investment capital for a national system integrator's growth initiative, increased sales by 200%+ (from $90M to $200M) over four years.
