New Gig: Digital Practice Lead at MMK Marketing

New beginnings are the best. And I've got a new job! Here are the top five reasons why I decided to become Digital Practice Lead at MMK Marketing.


  1. You don’t often get a chance to try out your boss and colleagues ahead of taking a job. I’ve been working with Monica Kwias and the team at MMK Marketing for over two years and have found them to be a group of passionate, experienced and smart marketers.

  2. My workstyle is what I need it to be for optimum health and wellness. Because MMK Marketing is a virtual agency, I’ll continue to be based from the home office with at least daily contact and collaboration with my colleagues supplemented occasional in-person meetings and events.

  3. The client list is top-notch. If I told you who they were I’d have to kill you. Suffice it to say they are big brands who have embraced converged digital marketing.

  4. I’ve got a clear mandate to lead and develop the digital practice at MMK. Beyond pure digital, the other side of MMK Marketing (retail/shopper marketing) has started to yield opportunities for omni channel retail/digital marketing aligned to the buyer journey.

  5. I just love teams and helping people achieve their potential. I’ve been around the block with a few agencies; so I’ve got a pretty clear idea about what makes sense when running a digital practice.


Coffee is on me if you’re interested in chatting about working with MMK Marketing. We are a mighty force when our approach marries with client objectives.



New venture! Announcing my consulting practice 

 It's official. Today marks day one of my consulting practice focused on social media and digital marketing.

I had an amazing time at Social Media Group and it is time for a change. I took this step to focus on integrated social media and digital marketing strategy. It is also a chance to change the pace of my work.

I am energized and enthusiastic for what lies ahead. It's a chance to write, share, teach and work with amazing people and great teams. I am actively exploring new opportunities and connecting with people in my network. Drop me a line if you'd like to chat about working together.

Huge thanks to my wonderful friends and family for their support. And to Maggie Fox and the SMG-ers for being incredible friends and collaborators.
