  • Broadsuite
    Chief Digital Officer & Partner, 2014 - present
    At Broadsuite I will be focusing on initiatives that connect paid, owned and earned digital channels through maximizing community involvement and content utilizing social and technology. What exactly does that mean? I’ll be teaching and leading change helping B2B’s, small businesses and technology companies connect, communicate and become active members of their communities both internal with employee advocacy and personal branding and externally utilizing community events such as weekly Google+ hangouts, Twitter Chats and video podcasts. I’ll be helping brands orchestrate content marketing tactics that situate their brands at the moments that matter to their audiences by focusing on creating content and social engagement that provides value while helping customers solve problems where often times earned and owned will trump paid. I’m excited to help brands embrace this change and I know change is scary and slow for many I believe by joining Broadsuite I will have the team and tools necessary to make this happen.
