For the past 40 years I have been involved in various areas of Sales and Marketing for a variety of channels, including distribution and OEM direct sales. For the entirety of this time I was focusing on sales or marketing of electronic components.
In the arena of sales, I was responsible for small and large OEM customers such as Northrop Drummond, Motorola, Game Plan, Bally Gaming and other similar companies. I also have been responsible for managing sales for multiple area sales offices in the Midwest and Bay Areas and held the Regional Vice President role.
After my sales role, I transitioned into marketing for major semiconductor companies, Xilinx and Broadcom (Avago Technologies) holding senior level positions responsible for Global marketing campaigns, web development, CRM systems, lead generation programs, Trade shows, etc. During my tenure with Broadcom, I hired MediaWorks to bring marketing resources, technologies and media backgrounds to our organization.
After my employment with Broadcom I’ve become part of the MediaWorks team developing and executing global marketing campaigns for the Optocoupler division of Broadcom and providing consulting for other electronic OEM suppliers.
