What About Big-Brand Experience?
I have been fortunate throughout my marketing and advertising career to have worked with top brands in a variety of industries:
- Financial services (Morgan Stanley, Webster Bank, D&B, Chase, American Express, BrokerLogic)
- Telecommunications (MCI WorldCom, AT&T, Ameritech)
- Health and pharmaceutical (ACUVUE Brand Contact Lenses, various Johnson & Johnson brands, various McNeil brands, Plavix)
- Plus numerous B-to-B and B-to-C brands (RHR International, American Advantage Mortgage Company, Castrol, Tires Plus, Preferred Hotels, Silversea Cruises, Fujifilm, Japan Airlines, GE, USPS)
What Awards Have You Won?
I was a major contributor on teams that won 3 Johnson & Johnson Marketing Excellence Awards (2 First Place, 1 Second Place) in 2005-2006.
Unlike some advertising folks, awards have never been important to me. Never applied to be a top “forty under forty” or “sexiest man alive.” I prefer to focus my energy towards delivering high quality work instead of chasing acrylic statues and plaques. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Who are you really?
I’m the guy who’d make sure you got home safe. I’m the friend who’d stay until the end of your party and helped you clean up. Your mom would say nice compliments about me.
Kirk versus Picard?
Kirk of course.
What Keeps You Going?
Coffee. I grind my own beans and use a coffee press. ‘Nuff said.
