BMDM-Logo
After roughly 12 years as president/CEO of Technetium, I’ve joined forces with BMDM by bringing my development team over into their operation, quickly becoming Orlando’s largest data-driven digital marketing agency. In my new role as SVP of Business Development (aka Biz Dev Guy), I’ll continue developing partnerships with global brands to aid them in their quest for capturing customers and driving sales.
Technetium-Logo
In 2003, I started Technetium to partner with various global brands and help them successfully bring products to market. For more than a decade, Technetium partnered with companies to bring their brands to life online, in store and on the shelf. We were very fortunate to work with some of the world’s biggest brands. My career path allowed me to experience various components of Corporate America. The knowledge I obtained is applied to our client projects and I absolutely love what I do and the clients we’ve work with throughout the years.

I’ve been launching retail products for nearly 20 years. The technologies have changed but not the who, what and why to get the product on the shelf and into the hands of consumers.

Recoton Logo
Prior to founding Technetium, I was responsible for many roles in marketing, product development and business administration for Recoton – an $800 million manufacturer and distributor of consumer products. My marketing programs, creative graphics packages and ability to build successful relationships within the highly competitive consumer products industry often exceeded corporate expectations and revenue goals. This was my launching pad for Technetium.

Maybe someday I’ll run another full marathon. Together with my two daughters, I enjoy the beauty of Florida and spending time in the great outdoors.
