With more than 20 years of B2B strategic marketing, marketing planning, and demand generation experience, I founded Marketri LLC in 2004 to move marketing from a cost center to a profit center for aggressively growth-minded companies. By leveraging core marketing principles, time-tested best practices, web-based technologies and highly skilled marketing professionals, I help our clients achieve goals that link directly to their success, including generating warm business leads, raising awareness and visibility, and penetrating their target markets. Marketri offers a Fractional CMO services model which means we embed ourselves into our clients, understand their businesses inside and out, and proactively transform their marketing functions to ones that drive measurable top-line growth. My clients know that I have their best interests at heart and constantly seek to earn them a higher return on investment. They stay with Marketri long-term because we are proactive, keep open lines of communication, care deeply about their organizations and deliver on promises. Our team embraces a set of core values to ensure that we provide the best possible service to our clients. I feel privileged to work with such amazing clients and have developed very trustworthy relationships with them over the years. Marketri maintains frequent and consistent communication with all of our clients, giving them peace of mind so they can focus on their core business and leave the marketing to us.
