Throughout his business career, Bart’s focus has always been about translating “what’s new” into actionable sales and marketing strategies designed to grow the business both horizontally and vertically. He is 100% customer and team focused, recognizing that if customers do not grow, the team and the business will not grow. His belief is that growth comes from visionary leadership; understanding the changing marketplace dynamics and identifying the tools available to affect change. For the last eleven years, he has written a weekly e-marketing newsletter highlighting new ideas in marketing, exploring how to integrate traditional strategies with the shiny new toys technology, and to provide insights to help readers better understand their customers. His favorite two words are “What If.” He is a storyteller, an innovative change agent, and a marketing thought leader, equally comfortable presenting to boardroom executives and front line teams.
