SVP Business Development and Strategic Partnerships
Areas of Expertise
Digital Marketing Strategy, Understanding Customer Experience, Strategic Social Media, Driving Integrating Digital Marketing
I lead business development at Clearlink, forging strategic partnerships that leverage the expanded capabilities of our best-in-class sales, marketing, martech, and data science teams. Prior to joining Clearlink, I was a successful marketing executive and founder of buyCalls, a performance-based marketing agency that was acquired by Clearlink in 2016. I started buyCalls with a focus on creating great relationships – with our partners and with each other. I believe that synergistic and productive relationships lead to success by engendering creative thinking and driving new business opportunities.
Outside the office, I combine my keen interest in running with my passion for community engagement through TeamGreen – a charity I founded with my wife Kate to raise funds for local organizations such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sandhills in North Carolina. Kate and I are blessed with two children with curious minds, adventurous hearts, and good packing skills, and travel is a favorite family pursuit. If we’re not on the road exploring, we’re probably already planning our next trip.
I graduated from the University of St. Thomas (MN) with degrees in Marketing & Business Communications and earned my MBA from the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School.
