I was a business and marketing executive for over 20 years. My most recent corporate position was as a Vice President of Marketing for a leading luggage manufacturer where I grew sales from $40 million to $60 million. I also hold an MBA from a nationally ranked program.
After getting my MBA with a concentration in marketing, I spent the next 20 years working in the marketing field. I have done everything in this field from managing the marketing the mix, developing product and brand strategies, creating marketing communication materials, working with advertising agencies, etc. I have developed thousands of new products which required at a minimum conducting market research, working with factories and engineers to get the products built and priced accordingly, and working with Sales to get the products sold. Out of the four areas I have listed, this is the one I absolutely have the most expertise in.
