I founded PointClear in 1997 with the mission to be the first and best company providing outsourced Prospect Development Services™ to companies with a complex sales process.
Prior to starting PointClear, I served as president of UST, The Business Marketing Group, a fast growing high-tech business-to-business marketing services firm. The company grew over 500 percent during my tenure. UST provided consulting services to leading technology companies including Sun Microsystems, Texas Instruments, Oracle, SAP, and many others.
From 1989 to 1991, I was an independent consultant providing direct marketing, telemarketing, and new business development consulting services. Clients included Sears, Exxon, Rodale Press, R.J. Reynolds, and the Ritz Carlton. One of my earliest assignments was to write the business plan that helped the Ritz Carlton formalize its plan to win the Malcolm Baldridge Award.
My background also includes 10 years of experience in the direct mail catalog business. As Vice President of Marketing with Jackson & Perkins in Medford, OR., I ran what was at the time the 17th largest direct mail company in the country.
My educational background includes four years as a European history major at the University of Maryland followed by a more practical study of accounting at NC State.
