I help companies becomes more successful by making the complex simple, not simplistic. Through effective marketing communications and targeted stakeholder outreach, I help companies create the critical market linkages that drive revenue and reputation.

I focus on creating communications solutions for use among four critical stakeholder groups: customers, employees, shareholders and investors.

My experience in multiple business environments provides me with the ability to quickly understand even difficult and complex subjects, then create compelling communications solutions and precise copywriiting that truly connect with your chosen stakeholders.

I can promise this high level of execution because I have 30 years of experience understanding not only the needs of businesses, but also the interests of stakeholders. I view business communications challenges from both sides — from the company's perspective and from that of the stakeholder because effective communications is always a two-way street.

I have used this approach with companies ranging from telecom, technology and software to financial services and global manufacturing. The geographic span of my work is equally broad — the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia/Pacific.

My editorial products have appeared in major US daily newspapers, global business and corporate magazines, annual reports of NYSE-traded companies, and among investors, analysts and business decision-makers worldwide.
