  • Precision Marketing: Utilized advanced analytics to develop propensity models that target the “millionaires next door” with unlikely backgrounds and locations.
  • IT Managed Services: Grew ten-fold over three years by transitioning from a government staffing firm to a diversified services firm with offices throughout the east coast. Utilized AI to develop and monitor a high-impact sales model, focusing on high-return “investments” in business development.

Sample Advisory engagements include:

  • Central Identity and Credit Registry: Engaged by a Central Bank to (a) review business, financial, and technical implications of establishing a central identity and credit registry and credit bureau and (b) lead a series of design-thinking workshops to share leading industry practices addressing what is required for an efficient all-encompassing implementation as directed by recent privacy and security laws and regulations.
  • Social Media Marketing for prime-time Network Television Series: For a prime-time television reality contestant show, built an online audience and obtained the requisite audience votes to keep certain highly-rated stars on the show, to maximize network viewer ratings. For this initiative, developed an advanced fan analytics profiling system, strategic fan outreach alliances, and the development of social media presence.
