Tell us about yourself
I have been a marketing leader, specifically in the tech industry, for 15 years. I have helped several start-ups and early-stage companies develop and bring products and services to market during this time. Throughout my career, I have stayed involved in professional industry groups with fellow marketers, where we share best practices and discuss issues to help each other resolve them.
By participating in these groups, I noticed a trend where start-ups would hire tactical marketing talent as a point solution without a long-term plan, leaving them wondering why their marketing department isn’t successful. These businesses often recognize they need marketing leadership to drive the strategy to align with their business goals but need more substantial funding to support this role.
Brand pH LLC focuses on the growing tech start-up community providing strategic direction with tactical initiatives at a fraction of the cost of a full-time chief marketing officer. Many technology start-ups and early-stage companies use most of the funding they receive to hire engineers. They typically need more budget to hire a full-time marketing leader. This observation gave me the idea to launch a business that caters to this community to provide executive marketing leadership at a fraction of the cost and time.
